Choose Your Own BlockAlong 9/29/14

Welcome to this week's edition of Choose Your Own BlockAlong!  I am having so much fun making these Dear Jane blocks that I want to ignore everything else.

Block A-8
With that being said, these two blocks are not my favorites.  I'm hoping once all 225 blocks (if I go with original layout) are together, these two will happily mix with the others.

Block F-3

The purple block has Kaffe and Cotton and Steel.  The flamingo block uses a Lula Magnolia print from Riley Blake Designs and a Kona solid.

12 blocks down
I'm up to twelve blocks now.  Each time I pass by my design wall I rearrange the blocks ;-)

Don't forget to see the blocks Michelle and Cindy made this week, and if you're playing along link up on Cindy's blog, post to the Flickr group and/or use hashtag #chooseyourownblockalong on Instagram.

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. I think those blocks will play quite nicely with your other lovely DJ blocks! Keep going!

  2. Oh I really like the first one. Also love the color.

  3. I really like these blocks, Rene'. I forgot how many of them there are! Mine go together so easily that yesterday I think I made six--probably trying to avoid other things I should have been doing. :)

  4. I laughed when you said that those were not your favorites! I have the same feeling sometimes, but also feel like you do: they'll blend in and be just fine. (I happen to like them, but I'm a sucker for interesting fabrics.)

    I guess I can post next week as my Circles block will post tomorrow and then I'll have something to write about! Yay!!
