Jane Stickle Quilt: C-10 & M-2

Jane Stickle block C-10Block number/name: C-10 “Patriot’s Lantern”

Date completed: April 8, 2009

Number of pieces: 37

Notes on block: Despite having sewed one of the pieces wrong-side-out (can you tell which one?), I really like this block. It’s kind of unlike me to leave a mistake like that, but it just felt like a fun thing to do at that moment (albeit a little weird). Another aspect of the block that I was unsure of was the green. I chose it because of what is appearing around it in the quilt. Now that the block complete, I’m glad I did. But it wasn’t my first choice.

Since I’m still not feeling any need to tear it apart and fix it (either for the backwards piece or the color), I think it will be okay.

Jane Stickle block M-2Block number/name: M-2 “Duff’s Bluff”

Date completed: April 8, 2009

Number of pieces: 21

Notes on block: After the last few blocks, this one felt like a piece of cake, even with 21 pieces! And two blocks finished in one evening! And I’m caught up with That Quilt again (at least until tomorrow)! And the new Joss Whedon show Dollhouse has finally caught my attention and is getting interesting! And my husband brought me hot cocoa and biscotti as I was stitching! (Mmmmm…) Woo! That’s a lot of excitement. Maybe a little too much? But this block really does make me smile. It’s just does.


  1. I wouldn't change it either. I think it looks great!

  2. I really can't tell which piece is backwards :) Good job catching up must be a good feeling.

  3. Both blocks look good to me. How sweet of your hubby.

  4. Okay, I had my nose right up to the computer screen and I can't find the mistake. Both blocks look great!
