You are making great progress on your Dear Jane blocks.  Keep going.  I'd love to see it going together in Oct.

One rick rack block.

several.  Trying to stick with small scatter prints that read somewhat like a TOT.

Dazzling!!  Really, really dazzling, Dee.

thanks.  If you have oranges & reds left over from your log cabin strings you could give this one a try, it would look really pretty in a collection of fiery colors

like how it looks but construction (at least for me) looks scary hard!! 

it is pretty dramatic, isn't it.

actually not too difficult.  They way Missouri star does it is very easy - here's the video if you are interested.

I did mine a little differently.  make 5 hst.  then make two 4 patches, each with two HST and one dark & one light 2.5" square.  Up to that point same as MSQC.  But then rather than doing strips, I sewed each of the 4 patches to the short end of a 6.5 x 4.5 rectangle (one each  dark & light).  then sew a 2.5 x 4.5 dark rectangle and light rectangle  on either side of the remaining HST.  Sandwhich that piece between those two light & dark sub-blocks, sort of like sashing.  viola, a complicated block that isn't.  Biggest difficulty is to get the hst's going the right way.
