My Dear Jane......

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!
