Jane Stickley

I am sure that all of you are familiar with Jane Stickley. Over the last year or so, I have really been studying her quilt, and have made a few of the blocks. I am a hand piecer, even with my arthritic thumbs. I love sewing and it really helps me relax, so in addition to Bonnie's mystery quilt, I am going to start the Dear Jane and I am planning to do all the blocks by hand. It is, at best, a brave undertaking, I know, but I think that I am ready to tackle it. I am going to take my time and go at my own pace, and hope that I can finish it in a year or so. Since I work alot, and have alot going on, my time may be more limited than I anticipate and it may take longer.

I am excited and anxious to get started. Wish me luck!

Enjoy your journey with the quilt! My top is ready to be basted and I loved every stitch.
