    Plain Jane - Cheater #1

    Here's the second of three quilts for the family reunion this summer. Made with a cheater panel of Dear Jane fabric - figured this was as close as I'd ever get to the real thing!!

    Where did you find that fabric? Didn't know it existed! Like you, this may be as close as I ever get to a dear jane.

    It's beautiful! From the picture it almost looks like the real thing! Would be as close as I'd ever get to the real thing, too.

    I'm with you. The panel is great! Very impressive without the headaches Love the way you bordered it and the quilting is perfect!

    I ordered it online from somewhere - probably Connecting Threads - but it was some time ago, may no longer be available.

    I can't take credit for the quilting - a local LAQ gave out coupons at our quild Christmas party last year and I finally used it. I told her to do a fast meander in the panel & quilt the borders as she wanted. She does wonderful work!

    My LQS was selling this panel along with some of the Dear Jane fabrics. I believe she still has some of the fabrics left, but I have not seen the panel in a while.

    I am with you on your great fabric selection. That is one cool idea for the Dear Jane quilt. I bet if they ran that fabric again it would sell out quickly. Your version is great!

    Your 'vacation' quilts are all wonderful! You've been very busy. And I agree with some other comments I've seen about these cheaters being pretty cool!!

    Looks nice. I've got my eye on one of those panels, too. Like you, I figure that's the only way I'll get a Dear Jane.

    Wow..at first glance it looks like the real thing!! I wonder why they stopped selling the fabric? I think it must have been popular. It looks great!!

    Even tho I made a twin size Dear Jane quilt using the book I still would LOVE to own a few yards of the cheater fabric. I have searched and searched and it seems to be no longer available anywhere. A website in Australia had it but never responded to my email asking about the cost of it. Darn.
