A lovely parcel in the post from the Netherlands with welcome letter in Dutch but surprised to be able to understand quite a bit of it, considering I don’t speak it!

Share Jane Kit

Also included are two lovely fabrics from the Wordsmith range designed by Janet Clare for Moda, templates and a picture of the finished article – in my case block B12 or Star Flower

Close up of B12 Quilt Shop and Star Flower

Janet Clare has made three blocks herself bottom row, third row on the left. This and many other completed blocks have already been posted on the Share Jane Facebook page which you can see here

At first I thought the B12 block was ‘normal’ applique, but it seems it is reverse applique as I found out when I checked out the instructions which are found on That Quilt by Anina.

Anina has posted instructions for all the blocks, with tutorials if you are struggling to make your own Dear Jane. I better get practicing as I have not reversed appliqued before! Just as well that I have had a lot of needle turn practice recently as I have nearly completed the mini fans for ‘Fanfare’ in quilting From Little Things.

Work will have to start this Sunday as it is work tomorrow – I know what I would rather be doing!

    You’ve started me thinking about reverse applique now & I’m supposed to be doing other things.
    I am so easily distracted. …

        It is probably the best technique for small pieces
