    here's the mini dear jane triangle its BR1

    it measures 2.5 inches wide by 4.0 inches tall finished.

    the first pic is just the mini triangle and the 2nd pic is a different jane triangle done at the traditional size of 5 inches wide by 8 inches tall finished.

    i'm gonna try and make a mini jane to match the large jane.

    it will be American Jane and Mini Me

    yes, i hope to do the entire quilt as a mini.

    it will be blocks at 2.5 inches square with triangles at 2.5 by 4 inches.

    i'm thinking 1/4 inch sashing and i'll do the scalloped border at 1 inch.

    the entire mini quilt would measure 46 inches square and the traditional jane measures 84 inches.

    I don't think I would have the patience to make those.
    It will be gorgeous when you are done.

    Sorry Klue I am not familiar with the Dear Jane series, but did you paper piece (foundation) the mini triangle? Both Triangles look just great!

    yes, it was paper pieced. its roughly half the size of the traditional jane triangles.

    here's a link to the original jane quilt, its an interesting quilt made during a very difficult time in our countries history.

    Thanks Klue--will check the site. I do lots of mini's, but don't pp. Smallest width I use is 3/4 inch to finish 1/4 inch. Made some Christmas ornaments with a 3/4" nine patch set on point. Will post pics after I take the small tree down in January.

    the original jane quilt is referred to by row and number because its 225 blocks and thats just too many names to remember.

    the row are A-M and the numbers are 1-13 for the center blocks.

    the border triangles are Top Row (TR), Right Side (RS), Left Side (LS), and Bottom Row (BR) and the numbers are also 1-13.

    so in this case, BR1, its Bottom Row Triangle Number 1.

    the kites (corner units in the border) Top Left Corner (TLC), Top Right Corner (TRC), Bottom Left Corner (BLC), Bottom Right Corner (BRC).

    They are just adorable! Love the stark contrast in your mini. There's something so pleasing about the preciseness of the blocks in mini size. Color and perfection appeal to me as it's evident they appeal to you! Thanks for explaining the BR1 as I wasn't familiar w/that; have the DJ patterns in 4" size but haven't made any yet. Thanks for the link also ~ was interesting reading about her family. Always knew her name but not her background. I love knowing the history. You did fantastic on these blocks and we can't wait to see the 46" size quilt ~ I like that size better than 84" anyday!! :thumbup: :thumbup: great job, btw! Merry Xmas!!

    I have 5 postings of mini's. Check my list of topics and you will find them-mini ornaments, fall mini's and then 3 sets of my first pics posted. Think these are 1/2" finished squares and triangles.

    yes, a mini DJ quilt is half the size of the original. so the blocks are 2.25 inches and the triangles are 2.5x4 inches.
