It's Been Too Long

It's been more than 2 weeks since I last finished a DJ block. Too many other fun projects going on right now.

This is "E-7, Bread Basket", an advanced-level block that I chose to paper piece. Since I didn't want to deal with Y-seams, I added a few pieces to make things easier. In the original quilt, the center square is one piece of fabric and four of the triangles are one piece each as well. I broke them down into smaller (!) pieces to make for straight stitching.

I've been studying the blocks that remain...many will be a bit tough, but I think I've figured out how to make "L-10, Nan's Naiad" the easy way....stay tuned...

I brought some Dear Jane blocks with me to make and I haven't touched them - oh well, I will get to them eventually.

What a nice execution of a tough block. I keep watching. One day, with hope, I'll start "doing" again.

Thanks for sharing your lovely work.
