I finished Megan's Mountain Laurel. I love how the paper-piecing came out, but the applique is only OK - those extra sharp points are a bear to get perfect. Clocking in at 45 pieces, this block took some serious time to complete. I finished the paper-piecing on Friday, prepared the applique on Saturday, then started working on it Sunday at the Blanketeer Bee. With those sharp points, I should probably have attempted reverse applique, but all my previous attempts at reverse applique have turned out just awful!
The next few blocks in Row C are much simpler than "Megan." What a relief! Looking at it objectively, the case could be made that Row C is one of the most difficult rows in the entire Dear Jane quilt. Sure, it does not contain "Papa's Star", but Row C is full of blocks with pointy appliques, and lots of complex paper-piecing - sometimes on the same block. It makes me look forward to D-13, everyone's favorite siggy block.
