    Dear Jane

    Finally! I have finished my Dear Jane Quilt after spending 8 months of my life on it.
    I wouldn't allow myself to start on anything else until I had finished it.
    There are so many lovely quilts that I can start on now.
    The Dear Jane was a learning process. I will probably make another one some day .
    I'm sure next time it will be easier and quicker for me.
    I will be making The Farmers Wife as well.
    Thanks for looking.

    Oh, my, that is beautiful! What a treasure you have. I did the Farmer's Wife blocks when we had the quilt-along here on the board last year. I loved the process and the blocks, but I am still in the process of finishing the quilt!

    It's very Beautiful! I've been working on my dear jane for a couple years. I hope to get all the main blocks done this year, then onto the triangles. I know mine won't be perfect, but I will be glad when it's finished.
