    Hi Karen,
    I have seen your post on here and on the DJ list and, as everyone else has said your DJ's are spectacular, love them. I am making my first "Christmas" Jane -- all in Christmas material, but very slowly. I WILL finish it, I get spurred on when I see posts like yours.
    I live in the UK and have met some lovely DJ ladies in Texas, when we visit friends there, at a quilt shop in Colleyville. This year, we organised another get together and I was absolutely THRILLED to meet Brenda Papadakis - who wrote the DJ book. She came up from San Antonio, to meet me and the other girls. I was very honoured. I also went to a marvellous quilt show in Fort Worth with Trinity Valley Quilters. I had a wonderful day with all the lovely ladies there!!
    I look forward to really putting much more time into my DJ in 2011.

    Seeing this red and cream Dear Jane makes me think I might be able to make one....Later this year! and probably for several years along.
    Love your quilt!

    You can get software Dear Jane, It has the patterns either pp or pieaced it works without EQ. I have 2 started, one is various blues and one is scrappy. Am almost finished with them. Then I am going to hand quilt them. It may be a while lol

    thank you everyone - really anyone can do a dear jane - just go into it knowing that it will not be a quilt to do fast - plan on taking several years to make it - I have heard of some who have finished one after 10 years! I put it aside plenty of times while making other things and then would come back it several weeks or months later.

    I don't mind you adding it there. No way do I start a third - 2 in the last 6 years is plenty for me - one for each of my girls - now it is time to do easy stuff for awhile and think of a new challenge project that will take several years :)

    Suddenly the blooming 9 patch I'm working on seems incredibly simple! That is an amazing quilt.

    Scroll to the top of this page and look in the top left corner, but below the colored ad banner...it will say "topic list"..The Famous Jane stickle blah..blah...blah...Click on that. There was a group of us who all started doing the Jane last January. 1 is totally finished (done in 7 months and a few days)..and several more of us are almost finished. The plan was to finish in 18 months. I think a few of us will finish ahead of schedule and many others will finish on schedule.

    Our next project will be "Affairs of the Heart"...we plan to start sometime in the May/June timeframe..come play with us if you'd like!
