Jane A. Stickle Quilt block 11: JAS-A11 – Pebble’s Protest

I quite enjoyed making this block. It was more straightforward than JAS-10.

While it is not a hard block to make using foundation piecing, it has many tiny pieces, 37 exactly. Susan rates this block as being of medium difficulty.

My strategy was more or less the same as for previous blocks.


Print fabric:

  • 9 pieces 1 3/4 in square in the contrasting fabric
  • 4 pieces 1 1/8 in square

Background fabric:

  • 12 pieces 1 3/4 in x 1 1/4 in
  • 8 pieces 1 3/4 in x 1 1/4 in
  • 2 pieces 3/4 in x 5 in
  • 2 pieces 3/4 in x 4 1/2 in

And I just paper pieced them together as per pattern. And added the border pieces last without the paper.

Where to get the Jane A. Stickle Quilt  patterns

Susan Gatewood’s paper foundation . All patterns are free though Susan says “I only ask that you consider making a donation to the Bennington Museum, in Bennington, Vermont.  And if you do, it would make me tremendously happy if you would tell them that you have received help from me.” I totally recommend Susan’s patterns as they are very easy to use.

  1. You’re right. It’s always fun to see how people solve quilting problems. I stick to paper piecing because so far it’s the easiest way to work with tiny pieces and lots of seams. Your blocks show very strong sewing skills, heaps better than mine! Your applique and curved seams look so perfect.
