Dear Jane in Nashville

Last night we went to a lecture by the Author of Dear Jane, Brenda Papadakis. I am really glad we decided to go. She is a very interesting speaker and we got the chance to see quite a few Dear Jane quilts.

The above picture are of Brenda during the talk. Behind her is a quilt called Technicolor Jane made of batiks and a copy of the original quilt by Jane Stickle.

The one above is made from exchange blocks from a swap on the Dear Jane email list.

Here is a Dear Jane set in a unusual setting. I like this one a lot.

Apparently there was a Beatles challenge and this quilt and the one below are samples of that challenge.

Love the border on this one.

Here is one made with just a few of the blocks.

Another with an unusual setting.

This was from an Amish challenge.

Isn't it fun to see how different these little 4 1/2 inch blocks look when made from different fabrics?

  2. Thank you for sharing these photo's. I enjoy seeing so many different Dear Janes. I would like to start with Jane but haven't decided yet what fabrics to pic.
