How about that! So far, I have completed one Quilted Diamond and five Dear Jane blocks. And, nothing bad has happened to make me want to end my journey.
I have been storing my finished blocks in a small Rubbermaid container. Also, saving all my pattern pieces. You never know, I may want to make a second Dear Jane someday! My pattern pieces are placed in an envelope, labelled, then stored in a decorative photo box.
To make the pattern pieces, I use freezer paper. With a thin ruler and fine pencil, I trace the pattern onto the freezer paper. When possible, I separate the pattern pieces with my rotary cutter. What I have been doing is cutting out 5-6 patterns (templates and fabric pieces) at a time. This is an all day job, for me anyway. Accuracy is very important when hand piecing.
Then, I select my threads and store everything in my project box. Now, I can relax, as I have blocks prepared for the next 5-6 weeks.
