Dear Jane

Dear Jane/ Jane Stickle/ In War Time 1863

On 08/08/2008, I started to make a replica of this quilt. Twenty Ladies from a patchwork group I attend have also embarked on quilts of their own.

We are planning to complete our tops by 09/09/2009 (making 16 blocks per 4 weeks) or 10/10/2010 (making 8 blocks per month). We are working from Brenda Papadakis’s Book- Dear Jane & CD Patterns, and also reworking some blocks ourselves.

Its a big challenge but a great learning experience. There are lots of different styles of piecing to be tackled in this quilt. It  is very addictive though. There are some very difficult blocks, but every so often there is a simple one. Thankgoodness.


There are now Twenty Five ladies in our group.

On the last Saturday in January some of us got together at our Patchwork group, and did abit of Dear Jane’ing here are the pics. I forgot to be in one myself. I was there.
