    Go to the top and do a search for Dear Jane, there are lots of posts it is a sampler type quilt with rather small blocks.

    I think if you do a search or go to the picture gallery, you should find them. Here's a pretty one.

    From what I understand it is a sampler quilt with small blocks. There is a book or CD that you purchase that has all the patterns in it. They are lovely and the block are at all different levels of difficulty.

    Its a quilt that has way to many different blocks in it. I refuse to even try to do it. I believe if I ever do make the quilt it will be official that I have lost my mind, just like the lady who made the original.

    I did'nt know either, but never asked. But seeing some of them posted, they are just like the 72 different block quilt I made years ago for a raffle...I called it "Country Sampler"

    Okay, we're giving leatheflea the award for best response ever! I'm laughing out loud at my computer right now!

    But seriously, I do intend to make a Dear Jane someday. I'm not enamored with the colors of the original, but I've seen some really beautiful and colorful versions of the quilt.

    I think that "dear jane" is from a real life story of the woman who made the first one? It is an incredible quilt of tiny, difficult blocks and a lot of them. It is right up there with one of those patterns listed under "do before I die". I think I'll pass myself. They are nice but not something I won't to do. I think the people who do conquer the dear jane can give themselves a big pat on the back. Kind of like those who do a Grandmother's Flowergarden or the Oh My Gosh quilt.

    I think I'd really like to do this. (Because I don't already have at least 50 quilts on my "todo" list...) Maybe somebody will start a group up again?

    That isn't a stupid question. The only stupid question is the one that you want an answer to and don't ask anyone. LOL

    Thanks for asking the question. I thought of Mary Jane shoes when I saw the question....Duh. I just learned you could go to top of page and ask questions too. So thanks for that info.
    Never too old to learn, they say.
