    She is a beauty!!! I love her colors. Great job. I love DJ quilts.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    BRAVO!!!! I so admire anyone who takes this challenge on! I particularly like the way you placed the aqua tones squares to make a diamond in the quilt.

    I am thinking about doing a Farmers Wife quilt which has 6in blocks and a whole lot less applique!
    What a treasure you have!

    I cannot stop looking at this. I would love to make one just to hang on the wall to look at every day!

    Lesley, your DJ is absolutely BEAUTIFUL Also, congrats on the 1st place...it surely deserves that and more. I'm working along with the 2012 group on this board. Am way behind on some blocks and way ahead on others. I just jumped around....maybe not the best idea, but, it's what I'm doing. May I ask you a question as I've read this thread, but, not 2011's. Did you plan your colors before you started, or get a brain storm and do it as you got going? Anyway, JOB WELL DONE and thanks SO much for sharing.

    Lovely. I am intrigued by your border. I have just started a Farmer's Wife Quilt this week-end. So my long journey begins as yours ends. Congratulations on a beautiful piece of art.

    I am new to quilting and am just in awe of this quilt. Can't imagine but hopefully one day maybe I'll feel like I can do something this beautiful.

    What a wonderful quilt! I love the way you arranged the colours in a trip around the world fashion. I have always wanted to make a Dear Jane quilt, but am not there yet as a quilter

    Absolutely beautiful! I keep telling myself to find the courage to make a Dear Jane. When I do I sure hope it ends up looking as nice as your's. Good job!

    That is absolutely the BEST dear jane quilt I have ever seen. I love what you did with the colors forming their own pattern. And the borders are just wonderful. Congratulations on you exquisite quilt!

    Congrstulations on a spectacular heirloom.Please be sure to have your work documented.There are several groups out there who are part of the University of Michigan who are doing a country wide quilt documentation project.This one is worthy of being a part of that history. Absolutely well done!!

    Anyone that can tackle such an overwhelming job needs to be congratulated! Awesome work and what an heirloom for future generations to appreciate.

    You have definitely made it modern yet its still very traditional. That is a true work of art. I think you are an amazing quilter. Grand job!

    Lacelady, this just showed up on the Quilt of the Day corner, and I'm so glad it did!!What an amazing quilt, and I can't believe how quickly you created it. I am wowed. I love the colors, how you arranged them, the Celtic quilting, and everything about it. The next time I travel to Ireland, I'd love to meet you!

    If it's true we learn from our mistakes, I'm going to be a genius!

    I was reading about your fund raiser and that 'house' quilt earlier, so recognized your name on the beautiful quilt. Truly a perfect work of artist talent and quick hands...to do all that in a short amount of time. Takes my breathe away, it is sooo lovely!!

    A new group is starting up in the BOM of QB in January 2014 making Dear Jane. In an insane moment, I signed up with the Quilting on the Square BOM to begin in January 2014. While I am the fifth generation removed from Ireland to the USA, I hope I have the 'grit' to do the work in two years or less and it turns out half as well as yours.
