    I did both...some of the blocks I did by machine and many are done by hand. I found it much easier to do some of the complicated ones by hand.

    I am planning on quilting it myself in the near future. I recently bought a quilting machine and a quilting frame is it's way to me now. After lots of practice I hope to quilt the DJ. I know I want a lot of quilting on it since it does have so many small pieces of fabrics and many were done by hand.

    Very, very nice! Hard to believe you did all those little squares in ust 3 months! It is beautiful! And thanks for including a picture of the REAL Dear Jane for those of us who haven't seen it - or who forget what an amazing quilt it is.

    It's true! I even wrote down in my DJ book when I started which was in July 2004 and I was done with the ones I wanted to make in Sept. 2004. I wrote on the pages next to each block the date I made it. At that time I was in a few Civil War reproduction fabric swaps. That was fun trading fabrics and it sure did help add to my "collection" of choices. I still have a lot of the fabrics left over since it didn't take much of any of them to make a block.

    I've had the book for years and even started cutting some out. Thought I could hand piece them in between other machine piecing. . . NOT!
    Still, I am inspired but you and others who have done the Dear Jane quilt.
    Congratulations!

Size:  863.1 KB I am actually considering removing the border and making more blocks!! I have to see if I have more of the tone on tone cream that I used for the background fabric.

    I still have a lot of Repro Civil War fabrics left over. I hope to do another cw quilt in the future.

    Very cool!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
