Jane Stickle Quilt: L-10

Jane Stickle block L-10Block number/name: L-10 “Nan’s Naiad”

Date completed: October 1, 2010

Number of pieces: 45

Notes on block: This block was definitely a challenge. Inset seams, bias edges, tiny little appliqué triangles... It didn’t help that I also pieced in the inner parallelograms the wrong way and didn’t even realize it until I had already completed the entire center section. I wasn’t about to go back and re-do it all, so I left them, and let the iron help me press them into submission. Astoundingly, that actually worked. In the end, this a pretty darn cool-looking block.

Can you even believe I only have 5 blocks left to make in the center? It kind of blows my mind.


  1. only 5 left?? that's amazing!!

  2. That block is really great! I am still amazed that you are doing this by hand.

  3. Looks lovely and only 5 center blocks to go!! So, over what time period have you been making your blocks?

  4. I think this block is beautiful!!!

  5. Isn't it great? The end is so close we can touch it. Yay!
    Of course then we'll have to put it all together...
