    I could not believe my eyes….THE DEAR JANE QUILT….

    This was prior to my brain surgery and the demise of my color vision….and brainpower, ha ha!

    We all know the original is a pure work of art and intellect….the contemporaries are striking….

    Don’t you think, we ought to have a movie about the DJ???? Yes or no….

    When I first heard about the DJ quilt, my first question(s) was…..

    WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT, WHILE YOU ARE MAKING THE DJ QUILT?

    What is your story, why did you decide to make a DJ….why do you quilt?

    You keep it….Do you share it….

    What is the journey to making a quilt….?

    I bet it is NOT the journey of making the quilt.

    But, instead the journey of life and it up and down!!!!!

    And that would make one heck of a movie….

    Does not matter if you are here in the USA or say in Europe or elsewhere.

    The way I see it, there is a common thread….a world thread….but I am lost for words, as I am lost for color vision as well and I need you…..to tell me….

    don’t we need a dj movie….maybe a chocolate dj movie…

    did you see that chocolate dj quilt on the board (yummy)

    ….almost looks like a box of chocolates

    Not to steal from another movie, but you never know what you will get with a DJ quilt….

    kinda like a box of chocolates…

    you will be surprised!

    Talk to me, tell me Is it time for a movie about the wonderful world of us….

    I guess it is, The DJ quilt as we all follow the same pattern, but we all pick our own colors and fabric!

    Maybe a series of some sort relating to HBO, in example "True Blood" and "Treme".....?

    Possibilities are endless...

    I saw the Dear Jane Quilt at the Bennington Vermont Museum. It is a beautiful quilt. I don't know if I would even attempt to make it.

    It would be interesting to know why she made it the way she did. Could it be she only had small bits of fabric at a time and slowly the quilt came together. Does she have a diary out there somewhere?

    This is my entire reasoning....WHY DO WE QUILT?

    Those small bits of fabric are no more than our lives....

    Just two months ago our community group gave quilts to the local sheriff to place in the trunks of the squad cars to provide warmth to adult and kids who needed them both innocent and the bad.....

    What about the quilt you make....what is the story behind that....the love....the joy....excitement.

    Then again....that quilt that goes to the homeless....or a cancer patient....what was the journey of that person....

    I just hope this thread is filled with stories everyday....

    And we all hear the story that IS THE "MOVIE STORY" THAT IS THE "HUMAN STORY" THAT TOUCHES US ALL....like a cozy warm quilt that has been around for forever.
