Dear Jane K5

Here's Dear Jane block K5 or Passing Through. I chose to machine piece this block, but poor Jane Stickle is now probably suffering from grave rotational dyspepsia. First, I sewed the dark and light strips together, but cut them at an angle to get the diamonds...generating much waste in the process. Then after sewing the skewed four patch, I bordered it with the light fabric. I then wastefully cut away the excess to get the required 2.75 inch squares. However, I'm pretty sure that less than a yard of fabric was used to make this 5 inch block.

  1. As long as you didn't waste more than a yard it seems OK.
