I hope you're not too bored of Jane yet! I'm not. I have two blocks to share tonight and then only one more prepared while I'm here, so there will be a bit of a break after that. I promise. And when I get home I have a few other projects I want to play with.
I started yesterday by finishing off the block I used in my EPP tutorial. It just needed some diamonds appliqued. I struggled with these, and the points are not sharp. In the end I basted them to freezer paper and the appliqued them; next time I'll baste to something slightly more sturdy and try again... but it is finished and I'm ok with it! It is block F-1: Big Top and the fabric is from Grandmother's Flower Garden by Lecien.
tutorial. So, to avoid applique, I decided to tackle it. I didn't make it easy on myself - nice small pieces, and I didn't cut enough of the white background fabric, so I was squeezing two pieces onto a piece cut for one - I'm generous when I cut, so it was just about possible, but basting would have been considerably easier with more seam allowance.
