Dear Jane

This quilt picture hung around my sidebar for at least a year and a half...the Dear Jane quilt.  I started constructing blocks in 1999...and stopped in 1999.  A couple of years ago, I bought the software that will let you print out the patterns--and still didn't work on the quilt top.  This year marks the 150th anniversary of the completion of the original Dear Jane...so I decided to create a library program around this theme (it's EVPL's Centennial this year) so we could have a support group of sorts...we had our first program this morning and there were ten of us in attendance.  Some novices, some dabblers, and some quilters...this is going to be fun {{if it doesn't kill us first!}}.  We will all have our own quilt tops by years' end.

Working together sounds like more fun. And you will all have a quilt top of your own? That is very cool.

I think this is a wonderful idea. I need all the help I can get. Can I join your group maybe I can complete my DJ this year as well :) I'm kind of a newbie to paper piecing.
