    here's the mini dear jane triangle its BR1

    it measures 2.5 inches wide by 4.0 inches tall finished.

    the first pic is just the mini triangle and the 2nd pic is a different jane triangle done at the traditional size of 5 inches wide by 8 inches tall finished.

    i'm gonna try and make a mini jane to match the large jane.

    it will be American Jane and Mini Me

    yes, i hope to do the entire quilt as a mini.

    it will be blocks at 2.5 inches square with triangles at 2.5 by 4 inches.

    i'm thinking 1/4 inch sashing and i'll do the scalloped border at 1 inch.

    the entire mini quilt would measure 46 inches square and the traditional jane measures 84 inches.

    I don't think I would have the patience to make those.
    It will be gorgeous when you are done.

    Sorry Klue I am not familiar with the Dear Jane series, but did you paper piece (foundation) the mini triangle? Both Triangles look just great!

    yes, it was paper pieced. its roughly half the size of the traditional jane triangles.

    here's a link to the original jane quilt, its an interesting quilt made during a very difficult time in our countries history.

    Thanks Klue--will check the site. I do lots of mini's, but don't pp. Smallest width I use is 3/4 inch to finish 1/4 inch. Made some Christmas ornaments with a 3/4" nine patch set on point. Will post pics after I take the small tree down in January.
