Aug/Sept Granny Went Star Crazy completed and Dear Jane

I finally finished my August and September blocks a week ago.

Here are my latest Dear Jane blocks.  Oh how I enjoy these little guys!
C-6 (Ashley's Aura) took 1 hour and 25 minutes.  It has 6 pieces.  The background is a solid yellow square with layered applique of the dotted yellow and white pieces.
C-7 (Megan's Mountain Laurel) took 1 1/2 hours and has 56 pieces. I entirely paper pieced this one.
C-8 (Hanis Crown) took 40 min. and has 21 pieces.  This block was also paper pieced.
(BELOW)
C-9 (Jane's Tears) took 1 hour and has 5 pieces.    I LOVE this little applique block and its name.
C-10 (Patriot Lantern) took 50 min. and has 31 pieces.  The original pattern had more pieces, but I simplified some of the unnecessary seams. (foundation pieced)
C-11(Soldiers & Saviors Monument) took 1 hour 2 min. and has 16 pieces.  I so love this cute little block. I appliqued all the curved pieces on the curves and pieced the straight edges in to the seams.
(BELOW)
C-12 (Family Reunion) took 30 min.  and has 49 pieces.  It is entirely rotary cut/strip pieced.  It wend together fast and easy for me because I am making the Omigosh quilt and this the the same block in that project.
C-13 (Lakota Sioux) took 55 minutes and has 25 pieces. This block was simple but is very eye catching.
D-1 (Alison's Guiding Light) took 45 minutes, was foundation pieced, and has 23 pieces.
This grouping of Dear Jane blocks took 8 hours and 37 minutes with 232 pieces.
Total Dear Jane hours to date:  34 hours 23 min.
Total Dear Jane pieces to date:  905
