Visitor to the Shop

We had a visitor today who brought in a Dear Jane quilt.  Ann P., from Blair, NE, told us that she has finished two of these quilts!  Years ago we held a class and she attended.  She took three years to finish the quilts.  She plans on hand quilting it with a beautiful Reproduction fabric for the back.  It was very inspiring to see.

    Wonderful to see Ann’s beautiful Dear Jane top. Many thanks for sharing. Congratulations to Ann for making two tops. I feel so inspired I’m off to work on a UFO.

      The original Dear Jane quilt was made in 1860 and is a collection of many small intricately pieced blocks. Go online and look up Dear Jane quilts- the original is in Vermont, I believe. Amazing work done by candlelight way back then.
