I'm at 31 DJ blocks!

I've been working away at my Dear Jane blocks in the last couple weeks . It's amazing how much you can get accomplished at doctor's offices and other waiting rooms if you have a few blocks prepared! This one is paper pieced:

The next two I hand pieced:

Another paper pieced one using my Dutch fabrics:

Had to put a quick and easy one in there :-):

Hand pieced the next two. Linda Franz of Quilted Diamonds, who first inspired me to try hand piecing, claims that once you try hand piecing a basket handle, you'd never appliqué one again. Well, I must say I enjoyed doing the basket handle by hand! It works very nicely. I do need to trim the seam yet so it doesn't show through the white.
