E 11 Wagon Wheel finished

I finally finished the next Dear Jane block that Nancy challenged us to do when we got together a few weeks ago to work on Dear Jane blocks. I used the back basting method to applique the center onto the white background, then added another striped square and reverse appliqued the circle and the curved corners. I worked on it while waiting for my car's emission testing :-). Did I ever mention that I LOVE back basting!? Thanks to Susan for teaching us how to do it!! I've had a few inquiries as to what back basting is. There is a great pictorial guide on the internet for back basting on Apple Blossom Quilts.

Your E11 looks great Jacqui. I'm slowly getting the hang of back basting and it does come into it's own in a few situations.
I love how you lined up those stripes. That must have taken some doing. Elly
