Block number/name: TR-12 “Jane’s Oak”
Date completed: May 21, 2009
Number of pieces: 4
Notes on block: A block (a triangle, no less!) with only four pieces hardly seems possible. It is probably one of my favorite blocks in the quilt—I just love that wonderful leaf shape. It seemed appropriate to try and find a fabric with a kind of leafy quality to it. I really like how this reproduction vine print calls to mind the veins of a leaf.
I completed the leaf with needleturn appliqué using freezer-paper-on-top. Then I reverse appliquéd the white onto the bottom section. Finally, I pieced the triangle to the top.
