    Kudos to you. I know there's a nickname for anybody that does a Dear Jane quilt---just can't remember what it is. Anyhow, you've earned it. Thanks for sharing your version of Jane.

    That's such a lot of work but what a fabulous outcome. I'm going to google Dear Jane to find out more about the story behind the original one. Thanks for sharing.

    I found the border that I used in the book "Beautiful Borders, Backings & Bindings" by Jill Reber and Margaret Sindelar. Don't get me wrong I LOVE the real DJ border but I just knew it would be more than I could do and enjoy doing! I saw a DJ quilt at a quilt show that had NO border at all and it really looked naked. So I knew I had to find one that would work for me.

    Wow!! I'm impressed! I just can't fathom working with all those tiny pieces.
    A finished quilt excites me!! Whether is it mine or yours!

    So impressed! This is no small thing to attempt and you did great! Would love to get brave enough to try it someday. It must have been awesome to see the original Dear Jane!
