My Dear Jane quilt is finished! I worked on the blocks and triangles off and on for 10 years or so. The top was finished almost 2 years ago.
I had planned to hand quilt it, but I decided to send it to long arm quilter, Jennifer Cunningham who lives here in Indianapolis. I think she did a beautiful job custom quilting it on her long arm machine. I love how she turned every other feather design the opposite direction.
I did my quilt exactly like the original quilt made by Jane Stickle in 1863 except that I curved my corners a little differently. The patterns were drafted and published by Brenda Papadakis in the book Dear Jane. I followed the directions by Linda Franz to finish and bind my scallops.
I love that the center block is called Indianapolis.
You can see by the photo that I have always liked to fussy cut fabric.
When the outside photos were taken, it was 13 degrees. I checked to make sure that the snow was really frozen before I put the quilt on top of it.
So I have a finish for 2014!!!
I hope you are finding some time to stitch today.
Thanks for stopping by!
