Jane Stickle Quilt: E-7

Jane Stickle block E-7Block number/name: E-7 “Bread Basket”

Date completed: January 4, 2010

Number of pieces: 39

Notes on block: I think I went about this block the wrong way. I decided to go ahead and piece it all, not really realizing exactly how many inset seams were actually involved. I’m less than thrilled with the result. It doesn’t look bad, but I know I could have done a lot better had I used some appliqué along with the piecing. Looking at it kind of drives me crazy now, but I know that once I’ve done a few more blocks, the frustration will fade from my memory and this will become yet another happy little block.


  1. lol, I pieced mine as well and feel the same way.

  2. Better done than perfect.
    I think it's just fine.

  3. Hi Robin,
    I feel just the same way now, unfortunately not with myDJ block but with the Sylvia's Bridal Sampler block. It doesn't look nice at this moment... but I KNOW it WILL some day;) BUT TODAY I know your DJ block is beautiful!!!
