    I started the first one about 6 years ago I guess and finished quilting it and gave it to my oldest daughter a little over a year ago. This second one I started a little more than 2 1/2 years ago and now it will be put aside to hand quilt when the quilt on have on my frame comes off. (I have hand pieced both of these quilts and hand quilting is what I do.) this second quilt will go to my younger daughter.

    SPECTACULAR!!!!!! :shock: :shock: I have been trying to get up the courage to make a Dear Jane, but I guess I'm just too chicken-hearted. :roll: It is certainly on my "Bucket List" so maybe someday............ :wink:

    That's quite an accomplishment. A lot of us have little hope of ever getting one Dear Jane finished. You did a great job.

    absolutely gorgeous!! I am making a dear jane quilt, but progress has been slow. After the holidays, I'm going to get it out again and start working on it. You've inspired me!!!

    I have a feeling the title is very appropriate, but you did a beautiful job! I really like the 2 color blocks! :-D :-D

    most of the blocks are identical but I did change things up a little bit in how I cut the pieces. Also the way I did them is somewhat different - I did more applique and reverse applique on this second one then I did on the first - live and learn - I did this second one in 2 years and 8 months (382 hours) while the first one took 3 years and 3 months (490 hours)
    The only reason it took so many years to complete is because I am constantly working on other projects at the same time.
    Anyone can do a Dear Jane - just do not expect to do it in a flash! :)
    The first Dear Jane I did I called "Insanity" so only appropriate that this one is "Insanity Revisited" and no there won't be a 3rd - 2 is enough for anyone!

    What is a Dear Jane quilt and why does it take so long?

    edited to add: Beautiful quilts BTW!

    i've looked at the book & found it WAY overwhelming, so my hat is definitely off to you!

    do you favor one more than the other and WHY?
