    I have received a number of PM's requesting that I share the Jane Stickle Quilt I am quilting to encourage those piecing one here. Yes, you really CAN finish one! :)

    I am still in the quilting stage, with a little less than half of it to go.
    I have quilted 91 blocks in the body of the quilt, 21 patterned kites (the edges) & 21 of the plain kites. I will do a scallop binding when done here abt 1/2 inch past the outer most stitching.

    I pieced this many years ago when I really had no business undertaking such a chore, then put it aside. I finally decided it was past time she was quilted.

    I am glad I pieced it. I learned more on this quilt than any I have made since or before. As previously stated, there were not as many beautiful Civil War Repos as now. I used a lot of Thimbleberries, etc on mine. (It really is brighter than it appears, I am a rather lousy picture taker. :))

    Thank you all for your kindness.!

    ButterflyWing: The quilt will be abt 80 x 80, the blocks are 4 1/2 inch finished. Yes, it is all done by hand, my favorite method. This is my hobby, I enjoy the hand work & find it relaxing to do at night.( I surely do not find much of anything on TV I care to watch.)

    Thank you all so much for looking & commenting such nice things.
    Surely is encouraging for other quilters to say nice things about something you have worked on.

    For any of you wanting to do this quilt...only the first few blocks are daunting. Then you get in a rhythm of doing them & you begin to learn how to assemble them.

    It is really not that hard--but I surely learned a lot of different piecing skills that serve me well today.

    Thanks again for looking & commenting!
