I did it! I'm so proud of this one! It's Dear Jane block C-3 called Jane's Tears. I thought she'd be crying when she saw this one for sure but I think Jane would like this one. I believe a speech is in order.

"I'd like to thank The Academy, and of course, Yvette with BOM Quilter and Carrie P. with A Passion for Applique, who without their help, I'd be be stuck at Hancock's on a Tuesday night in a beginner sewing class. "
All kidding aside, Yvette loaned the Pearl P. Pereira DVD to me which was INVALUABLE. I watched it 6 times and now have it down pat. Even took notes once. Carrie, in all her wisdom, held my hand through a few tough Dear Jane blocks and could figure out exactly where I went wrong.
My next goal is to get all the tools (on her site as well) that make applique a little easier. Can you say "Stocking Stuffers"?
Thanks, Girls...you're the best applique friends a girl ever had.
And now, I proudly begin a new label...called...."Applique" - ::::can't you hear the trumpets?::::
