    Is there a difference between a Dear Jane quilt and a Baby Jane? Are the names interchangeable or is the Baby Jane a smaller version? Or something completely different?

    From what I have read.. The "Dear Jane" is the original. All others based on the pattern are called Baby Janes.

    Only one dear jane. All others are babies. Used interchangeably on all babies

    Thank you. I'm so impressed by the pictures that have been posted lately of those who've finished theirs recently. I used to be intimidated at the thought of trying one, but now I'm thinking I'd enjoy the challenge.

    Just did my first block tonight. Hand applique. Far from perfect, but I'm excited non the less

    Good for you! Are you doing it on your own or with a group? I'm still working on my Farmer's Wife and will need to finish it before beginning a Dear Jane.

    A friend and I have committed to two blocks per week. I'm sure she'll get more than that, but so glad to have support and accountability!

    I am currently working on my "Baby Jane" in blue and orange. I really need to get cracking on her again!! I haven't done a block in a few months. It is a lot of fun though. :) There is a pretty long thread on this board for people that are working on one.

    Cheers!

    Oh, I bet those colors would be beautiful. The thread from the group who started this last year is VERY long, but the pictures they've been posting as they've finished are so wonderful.

    Last night I was looking up Dear Jane pictures on other sites and came across the Dear Hannah. It looks similar but has a whole lot of applique. I love handwork and am going to check more into this one too.
