Dear Jane

Around the year 2000 I, like many others, embarked on a Dear Jane project. I decided to make it quilt as you go and it slowly grew to 3 rows (out of 13). I bought most of the fabric on
travels up the East Coast of Australia as I wanted to mainly use the reproduction fabrics. In October I dragged the project out of the back of the cupboard and since then have added another 5 rows! I am very pleased with myself and it has helped me keep my sanity knowing there is some hand stitching to relax with in the evenings. Sure is more productive that doing Sudoku puzzles! I should add that I mainly purchased fat quarters of fabric, not realising I only needed about a 10 inch square. The other fabric is currently being put to good use in a machine pieced quilt which I started recently. I do think I will also do a variation of Dear Hannah - not sure when I'll start with the Textile Art - see the blog below!
