Jane A. Stickle Quilt row C: JAS-C01 – Trooper Green’s Badge

I start Row C today.  Row C doesn’t look too hard or maybe I’m better at sewing, more patient and I’ve learned a thing or two on the way here.

Do I need to say this block is EASY? It’s nice to get a break from time to time. This is also the reason why I’m doing this quilt in order, so that I can look forward to getting a break now and then. There’re days that I don’t really need a challenge.

If you haven’t done paper piecing before, this block is one you can try with! I have even posted a video tutorial on foundation paper piecing to help you understand the method.

I can’t emphasise enough how easy paper piecing is once you get the hang of it.

I really don’t have any more advice to offer for this block.  Cut your pieces, stitch together following the order in the pattern and in no time you will have a new block to add to your Dear Jane.

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.
