A-3


Difficulty of block: easy
Number of pieces: 8
Method used: hand piecing, hand applique

Here is my block for last week, Hunter's Moon.  After a long hard look at the original block and trying to distinguish seams from creases, I decided to piece it this way.  I may be wrong, but I am happy with it anyway.

Your block turned out beautifully. I did mine a little differently but they look the same. WTG!

Perfection!

Very pretty. Love the Jo Morton fabric in the background:)

You did a lovely job and there's no "wrong" when making your very own Jane :) I'm truly believe that Jane would be laughing at those (of us) who are trying to copy every single exact seam that she made.

Beautiful block. I've not seen the original but found similar differences from the book photos to the drafts. All part of making our baby Janes our own, I suppose. =)

Another pretty one. I like the way you pieced it vs. just appliquéing the melons.

Ellen said...

A lovely block, and you did a great job on appliqueing the melons so precisely!

Love it! I also agree I think it is worked in 4 triangles and not one piece! I have that in my notes!

Hunter's Moon looks great, beautiful fabric.
Nothing wrong with this one, it is just perfect.

Hello KarenI love your Hunter's Moon and the fabrics you have chosen. I to have hand piecered this and chose pastel fabrics. I guess these differences make it our own Baby Jane.

You chose a brilliant direction on this one. The seams are beautiful and definitely add some interest.
