Rainbow Jane J-10

This took about 12 hours total.

It turned out better than the original, I think.
The main reason was that I used the "freezer paper on top" method for the new one and I had used the "freezer paper inside" method originally.
I you have paper inside your shapes it makes them just a tiny bit larger and, on a block this little, it makes a huge difference.
If the shapes are too big, you really have to squish them into their spots.

It's gorgeous. I'm not sure I could do that one at all. Wonderful work.

I agree with you -- the method you used for the top one was spot-on! Love the look of this block! :)

I'm inspired by anyone working on a baby Jane quilt. Someday.... someday.... I've got the book and keep thinking I should start one.
Your block turned out nicely.
