Dear Jane, finally!

Well, I hardly want to admit how long ago I started my Dear Jane quilt (2007) but I thought it was time I started in again. My plan is to work from my scrap bag so that my quilt represents my era as a quilter just like the original represented the fabrics of the Civil War. I’m working through them in the simplest way possible… easiest blocks first. So, here’s k-2 made from the same fabric that I made the borders of ” Yellow Fish Rule”. The fabric was originally used in valances in my mom’s old house and she sent me back the fabric when she moved. That’s a lot of history to pack into a five- inch block!

  1. Good on you for taking up your Dear Jane project again! Great idea to just use your scrap bag… so much more fun that way!

    • Thanks! I love the idea of planned ones, either color theme or reproductions but I love that the original quilt is like a fabric time capsule from Jane’s time and I like to hope that mine will reflect that, too.
