How to make Dear Jane block C08

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.

Dear Jane progress

See all blocks I’ve done together in a larger size.




  1. Wow Teresa, You make all the quilts you show on your blog look so easy to do! This of course is another gorgeous one. Seems like the smaller the pieces the more I like them. I will definitely try this one. Yours are always perfectly pieced and I sometimes have problems getting them to look as good as yours. Keep up the good work and thanks so much! Jean


  2. Thank you Jean. With paper piecing it’s a lot easier to piece blocks very accurately.


  3. Teresa, Love your tutorials on Dear Jane. My question is: did you buy the complete book of Dear Jane paper piecing? Or is there another way to do it the way you show?


  4. I didn’t buy the DJ book. I’m using Susan Gatewood templates. They’re free. You have the link to them on my post.


  5. Oh really?!!!! I’m so happy that I found you. Thank you.
    I take it you live in Australia. But if you happen to live in Tasmania, I would love to meet you. I’ll be there in May.

  6. Teresa, I’m up to A-10 on the DJ blocks. Did you possibly consider putting the four odd shaped pieces on first without the cones and then fitting the cones in? I’m just wondering if that would work. Hmmm

  7. Not Applique. But sewing the centers of the long sides then stitching the cones from one tip, around the curve and up the other side of the cone and then clipping the curve.
