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’.

Two baby Janes completed - G9 & I7

Dear Jane,

It has been a while! I’m sorry about that. This will be a short letter to show-off the blocks that I have completed in November.

At the moment I’m busy with the next block. I was kind of hoping this would be the third one for November, but as you can see I’ve just laid-out all the pieces and I still need to cut the pieces for the last row. Than I will finally be able to piece them all together.


Once I’ve completed this one. I will have finished my second trip!! We will have to celebrate this by sewing on the sashings. Can’t wait to show you that.

Hopefully I will be able to continue at this pace, and make two baby Janes a month. Wondering how many you completed per month. It is kind of sad that you didn’t document your progress on this quilt. I’m sure all the other Janiacs would love to know.

Helen, the quiltmaker


  1. oooo - really love that fabric in the darker one!

  2. Prachtige blokjes Helen. Vooral de onderste die je af hebt, vind ik mooi. Succes met de volgende.

  3. Wat heb je mooie blokken gemaakt, en weer twee af.
