Hey there!

This was a really terrific idea to start this blog. I began my own Janiac journey this August.  I just finished four Baby Janes today, and here is where my rainbow Jane stands:


I am simplifying the fussier blocks when it doesn't change the appearance. For example, if three white pieces are sewn together to make a corner, I just use one white piece. Or, rather than sew two pieces on either side of a melon, I just applique a melon onto a single square (or reverse applique, depending on the result desired).  I might be more fastidious about doing it EXACTLY like the book drafts if I were actually making this with reproduction fabrics. But I'm not, so I'm not.  ;D

Hmm. . . I just saw the note about having the blocks clickable, so here are the 4 I did this week:

A-4

A-5

A-7

B-4
10/25 P.S.:

I forgot we don't get normal emailed responses from blogs like this. For anyone who's wondering about my progress chart, I use the My Chart feature in my Dear Jane software.
