3 more Dear Janes: Deana

My Priceless Quilt Group is making Dear Jane.  We are finally at a spot where three of us (Theresa, Faye, and I) are very close together.  I just finished E2 and they are working on E8 this week.  I have six to catch up.  From this point we are committing to one block per week.
I am also excited to say that Linda and Lorna plan to start on E8 and continue forward with us.

I finished 3 more Dear Jane blocks. 
D-13 Field of Dreams took 10 min and has 5 pieces.  This is definitely the easiest Dear Jane block there is.  I paper-pieced it.

E-1 Aunt Exie's Phlox took 1 hour & 45 min. and has only 5 pieces.  It is needle-turn applique and "I love it"!  I made it at the Priceless quilters gathering.  I prepped it, and while I was prepping E-2, my good friend Linda stitched it down for me.

E-2 Merry May took 1 hr and 20 min. & has 11 pieces in it.  It is needle-turn applique in the center and rotary pieced on the borders.

Dear Jane Totals:
1182 pieces
47 hours 12 min.

I am not really familiar with Dear Jane quilts. Are they a specific pattern or can you do a variety of different blocks?

Very nice--you do such beautiful work. You are making good progress, and how fun to have your quilting friends join you.
