Difficulty of block: easy
Number of pieces: 2
Method used: hand applique

The name of this block is Jason's Jacks. I'm not sure what's up with my background fabric but it was like appliqueing on a Kleenex! Why is it some fabric seem thinner or softer then others? I buy all my fabric from quilt shops.

Hello, Karen, I read all your blog, since the first post, and i love your plan to do all Dear Jane's blocks by hand. (I don't write english very well, excuse me). Hugs from Brazil.

I wish buying fabric from a quilt shop was a guarantee of thickness and firmness. Alas, I also find that it's not. I suppose they're sometimes surprised by the quality of what suppliers send to them.
It's bad enough piecing with a limp fabric, but appliqueing -- you were brave to keep going. Love the fabric choices!

I know what you mean about the fabrics. Even if they come from the same manufactor, same design family, etc. they may be different. Some have such a silky feel to them, too. I guess it has something to do with the dye and colors, maybe??

I'm so enjoying your blog and love the fabrics you're using. I just may have to get my Dear Jane book out and take the dive.

P.S. Wish I lived in that cabin I'm looking at here.

I'm finding that not all fabrics are the same quality, even from quilt shops. But-- at least the block looks beautiful! :)
