Dear Jane....I have been working on this pretty steadily for the last two days, until now. Wow! These blocks are absorbing, fascinating...and fun! I have not been so jazzed up about a project for a long time, so I will have to pace myself and have a plan on how I am going to do this. I have a lot of work to do for my work and also for our home, so I have to kind of work Jane in around things and other quilts too.
A fun block...paper pieced.
Another paper pieced block...fun! I think there are about 40 pieces in this little 5 inch block. Excuse the threads, I usually trim them all at once when I have a bout of insomnia.
And another favorite!
Let me tell you a little about Jane (the quilt, not the person). She is a messy quilt!! See above...couldn't be me, it must be the quilt.
She(the quilt) is also a temptress!! She lures me in when I should be mopping and cleaning and working on my CCRN exam prep...the hoyden!
A little about Jane, the person...what a cool lady! The Stickle Quilt (Dear Jane) was made in war time. Now remember, no electric lights, no anything like the luxuries we have now. Jane was an amazingly talented lady it seems, and I am glad to be able to know her a little bit through her quilt. Weird that I have grasped hold of this all of a sudden...many years of looking at and admiring these quilts, and now at all at once I am off on my own Dear Jane journey.
Tallies so far:
Time spent: 8 hours, 40 minutes
Wishing you all a wonderful week! This project will probably be shown only when I have a row or something, otherwise all you will be snoring in your oatmeal.
