    This quilt is amazing, I am normally not a huge fan of the Dear Jane pattern but you really make it a "present" quilt and I love it!

    I'm speechless ! What a beautiful job you did and so quickly !! I attempted a few blocks in my quilting class but it was torture for me. I hope you can enter it in some shows in Ireland so you can win lots of blue ribbons (or would they be green over there ?) Congrats on a great job ! Pat

    Your quilt is breathtaking. The amount of time you took to it it done, beyond me. If I may suggest, get this quilt appraised. It may surprise you. Again, absolutely beautiful. I am jealous in the best possible way. What fields will you conquer now??

    WOW! I have no words, others have said it better.

    I want to do one in blue and white, maybe someday!!! Yours will be my inspiration.

    Dakotamaid, a blue and white Jane would be really special, I look forward to seeing your first blocks!

    I haven't ever seen a juried quilt show here Sewnsew - certainly not here in the West of Ireland, so I doubt if I will ever win any ribbons, whatever colour. I will probably put it in our (Sligo Quilt group) next exhibition, which I expect will be next year now.

    Piecesinmn, it's a nice idea of yours, about appraisal, but again, I haven't a clue whether there is anyone here that does that. I suppose I could ask one of the Irish Quilt guilds, but I might have to eat humble pie, as I am not a member of either of them. (Lapsed several years ago, because it seemed soooo expensive). In the meantime, I shall probably just keep trying to improve - this isn't perfect by any means, it just looks good from a distance. Isn't that the thing about it being viewed from horseback at speed??? LOL.

    Seriously though, I have been bowled over by all your lovely comments, and thank each and every one of you.

    Awe-striking Lesley. You did a wonderful job on this project. Will you take a vacation or keep making blocks?

    I have several UFO's hanging around, and an IRR that needs doing, plus I am collecting fabrics for a quilt called Little Brown Bird (if you google it, you will see pics). There is no danger of me twiddling my fingers not knowing what to do!

    ABsolutely FABulous, another standing ovation from Australia. I've just started getting my bits and pieces together to start on what will be a very long term project! Only hope i can do it justice.

    Patti, you will have one of your own long before that, which I look forward to seeing this time next year! (Hope the keyboard dried out so you can keep us up to date on your progress)
