Choose Your Own BlockAlong 10/6/14

Happy Monday!  Can you believe it's October already?!  
I'm keeping up with the Choose Your Own BlockAlong and my Dear Jane blocks.

Block E-3
I continue to choose blocks that can be rotary cut and pieced, putting off those blocks requiring appliqué and paper piecing.  I know I will have to face those soon enough.

These blocks are really test my piecing skills.  Those corner HSTs are 1 3/8" (unfinished), so forgive me if I don't stress over my not so perfect points ;-)

Block E-9
When the directions call for cutting 3/4" strips, I need to remind myself these blocks finish at 4 1/2".  
After working on these blocks, a 2 1/2" square seems huge!

I am now up to 14 Dear Jane blocks, and I appreciate the continued accountability of these weekly posts with Michelle and Cindy.  

Are you playing along?  Link up here so we can support one another.

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. Those are some seriously small pieces. They make really cute blocks though.

  2. I have to admire anyone who works on those Dear Jane blocks. What a challenge. Heck, I probably wouldn't even be able to see pieces that small.

    Congrats on those cute blocks.

  3. I love that first block with the text print. Jane would be proud!

  4. Can't imagine making such tiny HSTs. Keep it up.

  5. I love this modern version of Dear Jane. Good luck with the tiny piecing.

  6. Those are such cute and tiny little HST :)
