Back to Dear Jane. I spent ALL AFTERNOON working on one block. Just a sweet, simple little basket block named "Rebecca's Basket" in the book. Not hard on the surface, but remember that the book only gives you a picture of the original block and a line drawing (which was flawed). It took more than one trial and error stab at it, but I finally succeeded.
Dear Jane by Brenda Papadakis, 1996.
