I made this block using freezer paper needle turn appliqué for the white circle and freezer paper appliqué on top for the cross pattern.

You can watch this 3 minute video to see how I made Dear Jane C-6 block:

Where to get the Jane A. Stickle Quilt patterns

Susan Gatewood’s paper foundation . All patterns are free though Susan says “I only ask that you consider making a donation to the Bennington Museum, in Bennington, Vermont. And if you do, it would make me tremendously happy if you would tell them that you have received help from me.” I totally recommend Susan’s patterns as they are very easy to use.
