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’.

Drum roll please!!

And than all of a sudden this baby Jane was born (finished). I’m amazed. I puzzled my wits to construct this baby. The middle part – about the size of a 2 €uro coin – was the hardest part. At the Dear Jane Club I all of a sudden saw how I had to fit every thing together. Some things seems to take time – si deve accettare questo! (by the way – I don’t speak Italian, got a little help from Mr Google translator). It sounds nice though.

2011_07_01_DJ-club1-1It was another great time at the Dear Jane club. I’m so happy I joined. Great ladies and great laughs. I finally met LZ!


At the Hema (a Dutch store) you can get these Petits Fours. Gerda treated us.    imageThe pink one with the flower on top was delicious.


It was so good I had to try the chocolate one too, with my second cup of coffee. It was a very successful afternoon.


  1. Gefeliciteerd met dit moeilijke blokje. Nu is het tijd voor een paar makkelijke. Die zitten er ook bij.

  2. Een zware bevalling zo te horen ! Een mooi blokje hoor.

  3. Congrats on your block finish!! Wow-- that middle star is TINY!! You have taken on quite the project. Its nice that there's a Dear Jane Club that you can meet with. I remember Petit Fours from my childhood-- haven't had one in years. They are yummy but so pretty you almost don't want to eat them!

  4. Wat een priegelig maar prachtig blokje. De kop van je DJ is eraf. Goed dat je je hebt aangesloten bij de club in Zutphen. Dat stimuleert!
    Goed weekend verder.
