On this blog you can find my ramblings about the baby Dear Jane's® (all 225 patterns).

I will regularly post a picture about the ‘babies’ that have been constructed. Each block is unique and belong to its maker, Jane A. Stickle, they are all derived from the original ‘mother’ quilt:

‘In War Times 1863 Pieces 5602 Jane A. Stickle’.

The place where Jane A. Stickle was born, lived her married life and died. It is here she designed, sewed and quilted her quilt during the four years of the American Civil War ((1861–1865).

If you want to know a little more about this town, visit this site here. I think Shaftsbury is a wondrous place to visit. I hope to go one day. Who knows maybe rent a cabin in  Shaftsbury State Park and work on my Dear Jane quilt.


  1. You are so brave to be starting this quilt. I love the idea for the new dedicated blog. I'll add it to my Google Reader. Please visit me when you get a chance at http://quiltfever.wordpress.com/

  2. Have you seen Den Haan & Wagenmakers version of this quilt? I have the poster I ordered from them many years ago. It doesn't have every single block or triangle, but commemorates their fabric lines over the many years.

    My Jane quilt has been finished and slept under many times. It is double sided :) and began just as fun blocks to better my applique skills on.
    Best wishes on your journey, you will be a better quilter by the time you come out on the other side. Sharyn

  3. Ik kwam erachter dat ze "slechts"iets meer dan 600 miles van mij vandaan gewoond heeft...
