Dear Jane...how I love you!

I'm obsessed with the idea of this quilt. I don't know why really. It's really nothing more than a sampler quilt. I think it's the idea of all those bitty blocks. Anyway I think I've talked fellow TMQG member, Lisa into doing it with me. It's one of the projects that is a longterm project that you stop and start, but know you will finish one day. I think I'd like it to be a wallhanging. Won't that be fun?
There's a huge following for this quilt and people who quilt it are called "Janiacs", lol. There's a book and website. I have the book on order. It's really just pictures of the different blocks and I guess in reality I could use any sampler quilt book to get the idea of what to do and design my own. Anyway, it's on my list of things I'd like to make in the near future. Look at me, who would have thought I'd have a to do list for quilting!

The Electric Quilt Company has a product that allows you to print templates and rotary cutting directions for each of the blocs. Not affiliated; just thought you might be interested.

Sabrina - someone in my quilt guild just finished this quilt and brought it last month. It was beautiful. There are several members of my guild who also are in love with dear jane quilts.
