Jane Stickle’s Quilt

Last week Bob and I visited the Bennington Museum in Vermont specifically to see the Dear Jane quilt.  It is the 150th anniversary of the quilt.  If you want to see it hurry on up there because it is only on display until October 14th, 2013.  We managed to get some very nice photos of the quilt … with the Flash off!!  No flash photography for this quilt.  It is in very good shape with just a bit of discoloration here and there.  It was so nice to get close to the quilt and compare the blocks I have already made with the original.  I could have spent all day just looking at each individual block!  You can see my Dear Jane Progress HERE!

 

 

 

 

June Jane Blocks

I have finished my Dear Jane blocks for Tuesday night’s meeting.  I am enjoying this quite a bit …. so far!  I love the fabric I am working with and the fact that each block is so different.  This month I had two rotary cut and pieced blocks, two paper pieced blocks and one applique block.  The paper pieced blocks are the fussiest, but the triangle block went together pretty quickly.  Take a look at the May blocks.  10 done 215 to go!

Here are the blocks:
