I decided to use a dark background rather than the cream and to update the colors. As I worked on it, Lacelady mentioned that she was going to use a solid color for her triangles that went between the pieced triangles. This would make the pieced triangles stand out more. I liked the idea (so I stole it from her), but I then decided to try some trapunto in them as well.

    Without the group on this board...I wouldn't have undertaken this project, but thanks to the group...I have a finished quilt! I learned a ton making it too! Thank you, thank you to the DJ ladies..you know who you are...!

    Here is the finished product..all the blocks (the center and the tris) are hand quilted. I then did machine quilting in the ditches of the sashing/cornerstones. The trapunto and pebbling were done by machine..my regular domestic Bernina.
    oh my....I BOW to you..oh Goddess of the beautiful masterpiece...that is super stunning....a show piece I bet!

    Absolutely an award winning quality quilt. Love the brown, and your quilting is magnificent. I hope you enter it in a show somewhere and share its beauty with others. Thanks for sharing here.

    Oh My God (can I say that), it is awesome. What a great idea to use dark brown, it really set the blocks off. Wow.

    Tell, me how hard is this type of quilt to make. Or is it a matter of working on a smaller scale for block sizes. Is this something that you work on off and one, rather than start it and work on it solely til it is finished.

    I made this with a group of friends here on the QB...if you look under the Topic Lists, you will find our "Jane Stickle Cyber Sew" We had a schedule and we all worked together. There are several of us who have finished making our Baby Janes. For me....it was just a matter of making my allotted 4-5 blocks per week...I did other things as well until I got close to the end, then got excited and concentrated on finishing this quilt. There are some people who are still working on theirs...and then there are some people who have just started making theirs, but will be using the same schedule and posting to the threads.

    We had so much fun working together though, that we are now working on another project together. It is the "Affairs of the Heart" quilt. You should check it out...

    A goal to shoot for. I love your Dear Jane and loved the trapunto in the chocolate triangles. Thanks so much for the inspiration. I am slowly working on the Farmer's Wife Quilt Sampler. I have learned I need to be a very accurate cutter and sewer. This will improve my skills for sure.

    Mouse....these are small blocks...4 1/2" and lots were paper pieced and some only had small bits of applique. I tried to get mine all done on the Sunday when the week began, leaving the applique parts to do at night by hand in front of the tv, like I'm doing the AOTH blocks.
