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’.

G6 – papa’s star

Dear Jane,

I just wanted to let you know I’ve found a friend who wants to take on the challenge of making a replica of your quilt. Lucky for me, we will encounter the same challenges together, as we are both in the start-up phase. I thought that the G7 was a challenge but I definitely can now say that this baby Jane was easy compared to G6 – papa’s star.

I’ve undone my work twice now!IMG_4554Somehow ‘template - i’ didn’t fit right. I think the template wasn’t mirrored as the other templates. Did I find a mistake in the ‘Dear Jane Quilt Design Software’ or was it a mistake I make myself? Luckily, Juud was there to help me tackle the problem. I think together we solved the problem.  IMG_4555The turnaround for this baby Jane is about 5 hours now and I’ve only done the centre part of this block. When will I finish this teeny weensy baby Jane? But don’t start thinking that I’ve become discouraged. I will preserver. I absolutely love this quilt and I can already imagine how it will look like many years from now.

Juud was in the States a little while ago and it is nice to see that she found some similar fabrics. She has bought stacks of fat-quarters. There were so many fat-quarters on the table last night. She even bought some doubles by mistake. I understand the price of a fat-quarter in the States can not be compared to the prizes over here. It seems to be so much cheaper there. I won’t mention how much I’ve already spend on this quiltEmbarrassed


I was the lucky girl to get her doubles. Aren’t these green fat-quarters beautiful?


At the end of our evening, Juud and I planned some more get-togethers to work on this beautiful quilt.  In the above picture two of my finished baby Jane’s are displayed!

Regards, Helen

  1. Goed zo. Gewoon doorgaan. Het is heel leuk om te doen, zeker als je een maatje hebt. Mooie stofjes trouwens.
