My guides

Well my readers (all three of you) it's time to play Dear Jane bingo. That is what this game is called - when one is making the DJ blocks from easy to hard, or as the mood strikes. I started just marking blocks one with a highlighter, but then decided I wished to keep track of the fabrics I have used. Not that it's bad to use one twice.
These charts are copied from a page near the beginning of the Dear Jane book by Brenda Papadakis. On the left, Pretty in Pink. On the right, Christmas with Jane. I make a block. Then, I glue a tiny swatch of the fabric used on each square. Around the outside are the triangles. If one is obsessive about fabric, a 3/8 inch square is enough so that you recognize it! I would be lost without these guides. Just a few weeks ago, I did NOT consult them but thought I would do Berry Baskets. Only when I was done did I see from this chart that alas, I had done it already!

1800's Christmas Jane 106, 31, 1, 3272
Pretty in Pink Jane 76, 26, 0, 2337
Minature Madness! 35, 0, 0, 518

I like that Bingo game. I will need to do that when I finally get serious about making my Jane.

Glad you enjoyed fortunately.....
