Dear Baby Jane: D-13

This is one of the three blocks already complete prior to starting anew on this Dear Baby Jane journey. Here's my block journal entry for it from 2004:

Dear Jane block D-13Block number/name: D-13 "Field of Dreams"

Date completed: 9/29/2004

Number of pieces: 5

Notes on block: 9/28/2004 This is one of the two first blocks I've chosen as a starting point (the other is L-8). I've printed if off onto freezer paper and am going to try piecing it by hand (eep!). There's no real rhyme or reason as to why I picked these two—partly because they seem do-able, and partly because I wanted to kind of randomly pick blocks throughout the quilt. I haven't decided if I want to use the Stickle layout, but I feel like that may be the way I want to go. I don't want my quilt to be the same as hers, but in some ways I kind of do feel that way. I guess we'll see.

9/29/2004 Got home from work tonight and jumped in on the block. Cut out the pieces, traced my seams and then jumped in. I'm finding that I don't know much about needles (though I have a bunch), and am struggling to find one that feels good. Anyway, I put it all together and now I have a finished block! It's not quite 5" x 5" (more like 4 7/8" x 4 7/8")—but pretty close, and I feel pretty good about it considering it's my first one!
