Making DJ Blocks

I have been making Dear Jane blocks - these are the first 7 in the book. They are 5" (they will be 4 1/2" finished), and are very addictive to make. The book doesn't really have the pattern, just a picture of the block and a scale drawing of the block - so I have to figure out the measurements and how to make the block - kind of like a puzzle, so lots of fun. Plus I only have to make one.

Some are hard and some are very easy.

Some have 40 pieces in 5"!

Some I am machine appliquéing.

And some have paper piecing (this is the method where you don't sew on the paper, but fold it back).

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
