Dear Baby Jane catch up

A busy last week of school for the kids here, with projects due, camps to go to, athletics carnival to compete in etc etc. Bring on the holidays! I have been determined amongst the busyness of this week to find a little bit of time to catch up with my Dear Jane blocks:
B3 Mirror Image - yikes, curved piecing. I had never tried this before. I was surprised how easily this came together. This opens up a whole new world of quilt pattern possibilities as I have always steered clear of curved piecing in the past - that's all I need, another distraction!
K7 Rose of Sharing - I have been wanting to use these fabrics for ages.
M10 Simple Simon - and indeed he was!
D3 Jason's Jacks - hmmm, slowly getting better at needleturn applique.
A7 Dad's Plaids - did this one twice. Had trouble getting all the little petals the same size & the distance from the centre join - conquered it in the end!
B1 Bachelor Buttons - more reverse applique. Another first for me. I am really enjoying learning new techniques without wasting too much fabric if I muck it up! So there we go - all caught up with the group ... until tomorrow!
