Dear Jane Blocks A-3 and A-12

I have two more blocks done for my Dear Jane quilt. I actually made A-3 some time ago. I like it, but it isn’t my best job in applique. Done is done though!

Dear Jane A-3

A-12 was a pretty complicated block to make. It is labeled as an ‘intermediate’ block. The pieces on this are tiny. Some of those triangles finished at just barely over a 1/4 of an inch!

One thing I learned on this block is that making two of each block is a wonderful thing and a very crazy thing. The purple block was made first and probably took me a good two hours to make. After I finished I really really didn’t want to make another! I waited until the next day and thought on some of the mistakes I made, then started in on the blue and orange one. You can’t really tell from the front, but the seams are way better on the second one.


With every Dear Jane block I make, I learn something new about sewing and precision quilting. I also learn to let the little imperfections go because sometimes finished is way better than perfect.

Happy Quilting!

  1. Wonderful blocks! I like the boldness of your blue and orange color combination. I’ve been thinking about starting a Dear Jane but that will have to wait until after the first of the year.
