I have whipped up a 12″ block named ‘J’ through the looking glass, as I deliberately inverted the letter J to make it a little quirky and surreal ( Why not, I say!) It could also be an upside down candy cane, fishing hook, umbrella handle or weird looking hockey stick.

I have plans to embellish the block with trim and make the T-shirt hang from a clothesline with pegs. It will be eventually made into a cushion.

Pattern for 12″ finished block found here and here. I have even included the segments mirrored for those that love a perfect ‘J’.

Join in the fun and upload your finished projects to Flickr Group and Pinterest Board with all the finished blocks and projects.

    Love it (naturally, j is of course the best letter). Good to see you've made it extra cool by using that background ;o)
