35 to life

my eighth baby Jane block ("Quilt Jail")

I found this print at Reproduction Fabrics when I was in Bozeman, Montana last summer. I made this block of thirty-five little pieces and enjoyed every stitch. Here's a shot of the back (quilters please comment about whether I'm pressing my seams in the right direction).

I'm no expert on pressing, but yours looks good to me! :) Great job on the Dear Jane blocks--your fabrics are so fun and whimsical. :)
The way you pressed the seams does two good things: it makes the colored blocks pop out from the background because of the extra fabric behind them, and it keeps the white part bright because there's no dark fabric behind the white to shadow through.

Gorgeous work. I bet Nancy Crow would really love these blocks.
