    Here is my Dear Jane quilt

    I made this twin sized "Merry Dear Jane" quilt a few years ago. I did it on my own just with the book. I did all of the blocks in a three month period. I was on a roll!! Some days I did just one and some days three. I LOVED working on this quilt.

    I did not do the border I came up with an easier one. It is still waiting to be Name:  DearJaneDone 001.jpg

    Thanks so much for sharing the original. I am so in awe of this quilt. Each block 4 inches and each one unique. I would love to make one if I could be accurate at 4 inches I would try. I am not there yet.

    Wow! You just can't get enough of this one, can you? I don't blame you! If I could get a Jane to turn out as beautifully as yours did, I'd be making them by the dozen! Your quilt is just exquisite & you have my admiration for your stick-to-it-ness. Kudos!!!

    I am always amazed by the details and hard work put into these quilts...so much so that I am afraid to ever commit myself to making one! It is beautiful!

    Dunster said "I admire anyone who has made a DJ. Congratulations - yours is lovely." Me too. Well done to you. It looks fabulous. Something to be treasured for many generations to come hopefully. Quite an achievement.

    I saw the original after I saw mine. We also drove to Shaftsbury and visited Jane's grave. Did you all know that people leave small pieces of fabric on her headstone?? I read online a the DJ website how people from all over the world who were working on the quilt donated money to have her headstone replaced since it was falling apart. I would have LOVED to have contibutued but I didn't even know the quilt or she existed! Here is a picture of her headstone for those who have not seen it. Name:  Autumn Jane quilt 016.jpg

    You can see on the bottom right some scraps of fabric and two little rocks on top. I have visited her grave about three times and each time there has been some fabric on it. The Stickle name is on the very top of the stone at the tip of the picture. Bennington is only about a 45 minute ride from my house.
