My Dear Jane in 2017

My Dear Jane quilt is from the book Dear Jane by Brenda Papadakis based on an antique quilt made by Jane A. Stickle and finished around 1863.

To make the blocks I used the book and the Dear Jane software. I started the blocks on January 1st 2013. I stopped in September 2013. A Year later I started again only to stop a couple weeks later. It is often difficult to find the time every day to do the things we want to do.

I had planned to re-start in January but alas it is almost mid February and I haven't started yet. I have a plan. I have the fabric, thread, templates, and rulers. I just need to print out some foundations and start sewing. If all goes well I can start Monday and finish in November. I've been dreaming of this quilt for over 15 years. 2017 is the year for that dream to become a reality.
