Let's Get Talking.....

...About the hardest, the longest, or the most prized quilt. My Dear Jane quilt would be all of the above. Made of 169 blocks, 4 1/2" each, pieced by hand and machine, hand appliqued, and hand quilted, it took 5 years to make....plus classes, and a support group! It lives on my bed year round.

  6. It certainly SHOULD stay on the bed year-round! It's worth the extra sweat (in summer) for all the sweat you must have put into it. Fabulous!

  7. What a beautiful piece! What patience! To me, 5 years doesn't seem too long at all.
