    Dear Jane in the making

    I started my Dear Jane quilt 2 years ago and I finally made it to the half way point on the main blocks. I haven't worked on any of the triangle blocks yet, I'll save those for last. It's far from perfect, but I am very happy with the way it's turning out.
    I have been teaching myself how to quilt and have learned alot while working on this project. By the time I finish this quilt I shoud be a pro, or at least a little bit better than when I started. LOL

    Your blocks look great, I have done a few, but have a long ways to go, lol! How wide is the sashing you are using, I like the simplicity of it! Great job!...

    beautiful, what a way to teach yourself quilting and piecing. I would not have been that brave. you should be proud.
