    I started with a j/r and went from there. I did have a plan in my head, but I worked from stash and picked up things when i saw them all during the year. Getting a new fabric for it kept me interested. I also swapped some fabrics with others in the group working on the same quilt...that made it fun too.

    The blocks are 4 1/2" square, the triangles are 8" long x 5" wide.

    Aww...you mean, I CAN'T just go to Disney???? Well, the same group that worked together to do the Dear Jane is planning to do another quilt together, so I'll jump into that one. Its " Affairs of the Heart"..we'll start it in June of this year. You can find the thread here on the board....come join us!

    On the scallops...those scared me to death! Actually..search for scallops and binding...I did a tute for them. Its listed on the Jane Stickle topic section.
    I checked out the tute! It's amazingly done--and such a small degree of all that is amazing about this piece of art.

    I also checked out "Affairs of the Heart" and can't wait to see more of those. Wow--the blocks are just stunning. But, I have missing genes that are required to make these pieces... I know my limits!! :D

    Karla...I don't buy the "missed genes"....you just are busy working right now and need to complete your projects a little quicker than these allow. Well...for some of us anyway. Lacelady completed her Baby Jane in 7 months +/- a few days...now...THAT was amazing, but thanks. You know you could make one with enough time.

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.

    This really blows my mind. Awesome.

    Every time I see a Dear Jane I want to make one.. I've even bought the book.. but it is such a huge undertaking, that I'm afraid to start. You've done a beautiful beautiful job! Your quilting really adds another layer of intest and uniquness to this wonderful quilt...

    What a treasure, I love that you put hand and machine together. Many folks are not doing that still. Simply wonderful!
