Dear Jane

I finally started my Dear Jane Quilt. I was originally going to make it completely by hand and then decided that there would be a sufficent amount of handwork on it even if I didn't do it all by hand. This will be a project that will probably take a couple of years to get all of the pieces made and then there will be the quilting. For now, tho' here's what I have done.

This one is called Four Corner Press and will find its home in position B-13.

These blocks will measure 4.5'' finished. There are over 200 blocks in the Dear Jane Quilt.

This one is called Uncle Homer and will go into the A-4 position.

I also cut out a couple of blocks from the Dear Jane Quilt that are appliqued.

Here are blocks 5 and 6 that go in my Star Quilt that's going on over at

I took these pics late in the evening so the color isn't very good and you can't see the different shades of red very easily.
I did a 5" charm square swap. We all swapped 20-5" blocks with 2 different people. I got these in the mail yesterday . Aren't they cool??? I think they are.

The top two pics are mostly the same swatches. There are a few more in the one on the right that I forgot to put in the first pic.
I'm looking forward to tomorrow when we'll get block #7 for our Star Quilt from Amanda Jean. Until then...HAPPY QUILTING;)
