Over the past couple of years I started Dear Jane but didn't do very well. Now I bought the book and am getting a good start on it.
This is square A1 done three times. The last one is the current one. I now have regular sizing and am paper piecing. The first one I hand pieced. It looks terrible. I don't remember how I did the second one, but it also doesn't look that good. The third time is a charm. Doesn't it look much better than the others?
It's the same way with the second square A2
And the third square A3. Although on the second try I didn't do the diagonal corners. I should have done that. Will I make it again? I don't know.
Here are all the good ones. They are all the same size and a good start. I am using a photo of another Dear Jane in which I like the coloring. That saves me some work of figuring out what colors to use.
I'm using white over the cream that I started with. I like the sharper look that it gives.
