Description

The first time I saw a Dear Jane on a blog I just knew that I needed to make one of my very own. I ordered the book and CD back in early 2006. I started the blocks in March. I am hand piecing each block with civil war fabrics and muslin background fabric. Since 2006 I have completed 55 blocks. That is 7.8 blocks a year. So at this rate it will take me just over 28 years to complete all 225 blocks. Hmm. I think I can do it - I will only ever make one!

Handstitching them all. WOW! I am starting mine in January, and hope to be done by the end of 2013. That is 4.3 blocks a week. My goal is set really high, lets see how many I actually get done.

16muddyfeet the blog where I saw first saw the Dear Jane the blogger hand pieced all her blocks and had the quilt to flimsy stage on about a year or a little more - if I do recall - it was a long time ago. What method of construction are you planning to use?

True I am hoping that I can pick up the pace once I am retired! Although I have been off work for a whole with this bum foot and it hasn't really helped.

Zoebird2005 I will be machine piecing as much as possible. I don't do much handwork. My hands don't like it.

16muddyfeet I can't imagine how difficult it will be to machine piece some of those tiny pieces. I know the foundation piecing method works very well and I think fairly quickly. But I am a bit challenged by those darn foundation pieced patterns and the whole working backwards. Good luck with your quilt - it will be nice to see your progress.
