Dear Jane D4, C6, C4

April 23, 2012

This weekend I got quite a few blocks drafted onto freezer paper. It’s amazing how long just that takes. On Saturday evening I got only 3 blocks drafted in the 45 minutes that it took me to catch up on Grey’s Anatomy. Granted, they were more detailed blocks, but still!

Friday I finished D4 Crystal Star. I paper pieced it, and hand appliquéd the “leaves.”

Got started on C6 Ashley’s Aura, but Saturday was so busy I didn’t get around to finishing it until Sunday. Completely hand appliquéd. I appliquéd the white circle on the background first, then the cross over all, cutting away the extra fabric on the back as I went.

C4 Tic Tac Toe I did last night. I strip pieced the center section, and then paper pieced the rest on the machine. I love the fabric on this one.

And I need to redo the tutorials I have for piecing diamonds, and my quilt binding tutorial… I hadn’t learned to be patient and do pictures during the day or how to use the macro button back then. It’s about time I pull out an almost finish doll quilt and do that!

    Just wondered, Wendy, if you have tried to copy the block diagram and print it onto freezer paper. Soooo much easier and I do most of my DJ blocks that way.

      I think I have tried that, and my printer does not particularly love freezer paper, so I’ve just found it easier to trace instead. I tend to change a lot of them as well, and that way I can remove unwanted sewing lines.
