Here's another Dear Jane Block. This is K4 or Thea's Turn. This was one of those blocks where the Jane Stickle block differed from the diagram in the book. I liked Jane's block better, so I redrafted the block. To make this block, I fussy cut a center square, surrounded it with background strips then sewed four flip triangles to the outer most corners. Last but not least, I appliqued the four small triangles.
This is L6 or Maze of Madness. The madness comes if you follow the book's diagram because it is not symmetrical like the Dear Jane block. I discovered this when my block's finished size was way too big. Just a warning. And for this block I built it like a medallion, alternating strips of dark and background fabric moving outward. Except after I added the third border, but before I added the fourth, I appliqued the counter marching line segments that give this block its complexity.
And here is the collection of the last four Dear Jane blocks.
And here's a red fish. In theory, I am busy making carrots for the bunnies. This fish was supposed to be a leader and ender activity. But what really happens is that I take massive tangents and do everything except the carrots.
In kitten news, Buddy (formerly Typhoon) is now coming up and flicking his tail at me. He is inviting me to take a whiff, but I use the opportunity to stroke his back to the base of his tail. Sometimes he seems to enjoy it, and other times he turns around as if to nip me thinking I am one of his sisters on a sneak attack. Then I get a look of Sniff! Don't Touch!
