Nonnie’s Quilting Dreams

Quilting, rants and raves and I am sure I will talk to my grandson.

Revisting Dear Jane

Posted on August 25th, 2011

I started recording this podcast a couple of weeks ago when History Quilter released her podcast.  I contacted her to let her know I had this planned and make sure I was not stepping on her podcast.  She gave me her blessings.  I will be following this post with show notes this weekend.   So here is my journey with Dear Jane.

I also suggest checking out my WORDPRESS blog since I have so many links there posted in the last week.

    I really appreciated this episode. I started a Dear Jane at least ten years ago. I made sixty something blocks before setting it aside for a long time. I already have all my fabrics picked and bagged in rows. I went with similar looking fabrics, but not necessarily reproductions. I have a huge binder that all my blocks are stored in. I used every type of technique, and I also learned a lot. I learned to paper piece and also to do reverse applique. I assumed I would hand quilt it when I first started, but after so many years I now realize I will have to machine quilt it, I can no longer hand quilt large quilts. You have really inspired me to get back to doing this quilt. I would love to see some pictures of your blocks. Linda Franz also has some wonderful hand piecing tutorials, I am going to look up the Ginny Beyer ones you mentioned. Blessings.

    Nonnie, I really enjoyed this Dear Jane episode!!! I LOVE your attitude.. It’s MY quilt and I’ll do what I want! I’ve often looked at others’ Dear Jane’s and thought I’d like to do one in a really strange colour scheme just to throw people off.. lol! One of my favourite books has a male character named Jamie, and he has flaming red hair, so I thought of doing mine in shades of red and orange and yellow, and calling it Dear Jamie.. hehe. One day I’ll start it.. I do have a list of blocks I’m keeping that I’ll include. I would never make one out of civil war traditional prints because frankly there are already enough quilts on the planet that look exactly like that!

    I am glad you ladies liked the DEAR JANE podcast … it was a great trip down memory lane…. I think people should enjoy their quilting experience and make what speaks to them. I sure Jane Stickel would have picked modern fabrics if they had been available to her. I think she was adventuresome type person just from the different forms of her blocks.

    Thanks for listening
