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’.

G7 & G8

Dear Jane,

I’m getting ready for the DJ-club. Preparation is the essence! The Indianapolis block (G7) look so easy to construct but I now know differently. And according to some this isn’t even one of the hardest to make. Justin’s Comet (G8) looks a lot easier. IMG_3416 How did you think of adding this teeny weenie triangle to make this block into a square?

IMG_3417I must admit that cutting out the templates is tedious work and very time consuming. But the feeling when having figured out this puzzle and starting to construct the block is hard to describe. Perseverance is a trait that I keep having to face. Why is that? And why don’t I just walk away from a challenge? Jane, lots to think about. IMG_3418I absolutely love this fabric Judie Rothermel Civil War Honeycomb Gold from Marcus. Sadly not all the fabrics I’ve bought have a name.

IMG_3420I also love these. Can’t wait to use them in one of the baby DJ-blocks. IMG_3364Here are the G7 & G8 laid out. You also see something which you most probably don’t recognize. Between the blocks is a ‘soesje’ (cream puffy pastry). A pastry filled with cream. Absolutely delicious with a cup of coffee. I wonder did you sometimes allow yourself to have some cake while making this quilt. Did you have coffee or other refreshments?

IMG_3454It took me nearly two hours to finish the first quarter of this block! But the G7 does look nice for a centre block. Do follow my progress.

yours faithfully, Helen
