hi, welcome home
I am currently working on a Dear Jane quilt. It's a replica of an antique quilt made by Jane A. Stickle during the American Civil War. Jane created an extraordinary sampler of 225 patterns and 5,602 pieces.
I love historical quilts and was immediately addicted when I bought Brenda Manges Papadakis's book entitled "Dear Jane - The Two-Hundred Twenty-Five Patterns from the 1863 Jane A. Stickle Quilt".
I made my first block on October 27, 1998 and joined the Dear Jane mailing list shortly thereafter. I am using a large variety of reproduction prints to give the same appearance as the original quilt. My background fabric is an antique white solid. All my blocks are hand pieced and hand appliquéd.

In November 2000, I attended a Dear Jane retreat in Shipshewana, Indiana, where I met a buch of delightful ladies who share the same passion and enthusiasm for the Dear Jane Quilt.

Please visit the Dear Jane website. Here you'll find a picture of Jane's original quilt, great tips to help you get started with your Baby Jane blocks and information regarding the Dear Jane mailing list.
I hope you enjoy looking at my DJ work.
