Foundation pieced.

Print or trace the block pattern onto your foundation paper.
IMPORTANT! You will have to mirror the colors when you foundation piece this block, or they will come out opposite of what the block should look like.
Number and cut out the sections as in the photo.

Foundation piece each numbered section. I also ironed freezer paper to the back of the unnumbered sections to keep them from warping.
Trim the seam allowances to ¼".

Following the block diagram, sew together the triangles in pairs. I've found that it helps to lay the sections down paper side up first because it helps to be able to see the numbers on the paper, and then pairing them up.
Lining up the seams may be a little tricky. Keep your seam ripper handy.

Sew the resulting squares together in pairs.

Sew the two rectangles together.

Attach the top and bottom strips, then the two side strips.

Not perfect, but kind of cute.

  8. Thank you so much for your wonderful Blog and information. I'm just now starting to make my Baby Jane and finding that your expertise is invaluable!! I just put this block together using the layout from the software and it turned out kind of wonky- if I had looked at your method first it would have turned out much better! A lesson learned! One of many to come as I proceed with this quilt! Thank you so much!
