Jane A. Stickle Quilt row B: JAS-B03 – Mirror Image

This is again an easy block. This block is pieced.

I cut only one piece of each from the pattern sheet and drew 2 pieces of each on the print fabric.

And two of each on the white fabric.

Then I used the pattern pieces again, trimmed off the seam allowance and used the piece to draw the seam allowance on each piece of fabric.

I learned this trick on thatquilt. There’s no need to clip both seams, just the concave seam. It’s that easy!

Another important thing is to find the middle in both pieces.

Just fold each piece in half and pin through the middle.

Align both pieces on the middle point. Then pin on each edge and then in the middle.

Just stitch along the line.

Press well.

And stitch together.

As it turned out the centre seams don’t meet but I can live with that.

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.
