B-2 and B-12 in Batiks

Uh-oh ... I've been focusing on the mystery quilts lately that I have neglected Baby Jane. These two blocks were assigned last week, and for this week, Anina, assigned a difficult block. Yikes! (haven't attempt it yet)
The purple block is B-2, Sweet Tater Pie.... a cute name for a cute block. This block is machine pieced and hand appliqued. When I first saw this block, I thought it was a hard one ... (these are little blocks! 4 1/2"), but with Anina's directions, it's rather an easy one to do. Thanks Anina!
The yellow block is B-12, Starflower.... another cute name for a cute block. Don't you think Jane was creatived in naming these blocks? This one is regular handappliqued... nope, didn't have to do reverse applique on this.
I have the blocks in reproduction fabrics prepped... I'll be busy for the next couple nights. :o)

This is the second link to the Dear Baby Jane site I've come across this morning! Do you think it's a sign that I should be having a go?

I love your CC quilt. I have had a orange and aqua quilt in my head for a long time ( I have the scraps to make one) but never thought about pairing them with black - brillant! This is my first visit to your blog (I came by way of amanda) - now I know what doxies are!

Great Jane blocks... B-2 is one of my favorites for swaps.

I got one prepped this morning. I hope to get it stitched together this weekend.
Thanks for the encouragement.

I love these! The blocks were actually named by the ladies who helped Brenda make them when she was drafting them for her book. A lot of fun, that's for sure.
