Tuesday Quilt block

It was Easter Vacation and I had a little time to work on quilt blocks.  I am back in the groove with my Dear Jane project!  I started in the Fall of 2007 so it has taken me awhile to finish 158 blocks out of 169, and most of the triangles.  Unfortunately, most of the blocks left are hard ones.  Such as this one:

It finishes at 4.5 inches.  It is called Tinker Toy and involved matching stripes, applique, and reverse applique.  I had been saving this striped fabric just for a block like this.  The corner blocks are supposed to be set in via Y-seams, but I balked and just appliqued them on.

I'm linking up with Connie at Quilting by the River.

And I'm linking up to another linky party: Quilt Story.
See what other quilt and crafty projects people are sharing!

I'm on facebook at if you would like to follow me.

At least your Jane is moving forward... Mine is still marinating.

I just started Dear Jane this year. And when it comes to y seams, I think I'll do the same thing! Your block looks great!

You did a lovely job on this block. I too started my Dear Jane project in Sept 2007.. but I've only got as far as 100 blocks. If only I could stick at it.
I hand pieced this block a couple of weeks ago. I'm in the process of doing another hand pieced one. I have mixed the methods throughout. Which ever method seemed the easiest and sometimes using several methods in one tiny block. I love your strip that you've used.
