Dear Jane Blocks






Here are some of my blocks from the Jane Stickle quilt. I began in 2001, and still only have around 60 done. I was thinking of setting a time limit, and if I don't have all 169 plus the triangles done, then just make a small quilt, but......I probably won't do that. I guess it is a very long term project. I use every technique for this, applique, hand-piecing, foundation paper-piecing, machine piecing, whatever I can do to get the block done. For those unfamiliar with this 1863 reproduction quilt, the blocks are very small, 4 1/2 inches.
I hope some of you will leave some comments if you are doing one too.

I am working on the DJ quilt also and have finished a whole one block! lol I am using scraps from another quilt I am also piecing by hand. I, too, need to get motivated on it.
