Dear Jane - Jane's Tears (C-9)
So far, I have been sewing these blocks pretty much in order but I chose to skip a few blocks because I wanted to take applique with me instead of hand-piecing. The pieced blocks usually have so many pieces and I didn't want to get any teeny-tiny pieces lost.
I think my block turned out pretty cute and pretty well considering I still classify myself to be a beginner with hand applique and I am really out of practice. :) When you compare my block to the real Dear Jane block there is a larger gap between my applique tear drops but it did turn out more in line with the pattern from the book. I think I would have liked it better closer together but I am happy with it regardless.
On the home front - my husband had his surgery a week ago on Monday and he is making great progress. I really hope that things have settled down enough around here for me to go back to some wonderful routines that I really do enjoy. You know...things like quilting and blogging!
