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.
That is absolutely gorgeous!! Congratulations to Ann and to Country Threads for inspiring this work of art!!
Hey, I know Ann-we are from the same town! Great Job, Ann!!
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.
Absolutely beautiful! She should be so proud! And so should you for teaching her!
That is awesome & TWO of them? Fantastic!!
Beautiful! I can see why it took 3 years to make!
Gorgeous!! I started mine about 5 years ago and am not even near to getting it done, much less two of them! Congrats!!!
Awesome!!!! But after working on two of them I think I would be nearly insane. Beautiful work and what a treasure to own!!!!
What is a Dear Jane quilt, Mary?
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.
Will do. Thanks, Mary
