Dear Jane Block C11

This is Dear Jane Block C11, also known as the long-winded "Soldiers and Sailors Monument." This is easier than it looks. I enjoy applique circles. I make a running stitch on the outside seam allowance of the circle then gather this around a mylar circle. This is ironed and then appliqued to the center.  I used freezer paper for the quarter circles and for these I only had to applique the circular section because the rest was captured by the purple border.


  1. Sounds like he lack of machine is forcing you to get the applique blcks done. This block has a far too long a name.

  2. I love how you fussy-cut five different circles for this!
    And purple, too! Double win!
