A woman who loves to endeavor into the world of fabric and colours. I am still learning so I would love to talk to you about sewing or other craft-related subject!
Interests
My obsession with the Dear Jane quilt is slowly growing and growing. A part of it that fascinates me so much are the names of the blocks and all the different shapes of the patterns. The last theme that fascinated me was nature, because here in the Netherlands spring is finally in the air! :D. I've finished four blocks so far that fit within the criteria:

Dear Jane block B-8: Water Lilly by BellaGBear Dear jane quilt block M-1: dogwood days by BellaGBear Dear Jane quilt block J-8: Justin's corner by BellaGBear Dear Jane quilt block E-4: Buffalo Treehopper by BellaGBear

The interesting thing is that the original maker of the quilt, Jane Stickle, did not name the blocks. The blocks are named by the first group who was teached to make the quilt by Brenda Papadakis. Brenda Papadakis is the woman who gave us the patterns of all the Dear Jane blocks. This means that the patterns and names are made by different people. This gives me lots of ideas of all the different ideas and interpretations people have had of this quilt. Such a lovely idea that there is such a huge background story to a classic quilt as the Dear Jane.

I've published a blogpost about the nature pieces where I talk a bit more about how I made the blocks: Nature in the Dear Jane quilt.  In this gallery you can follow my progress on this quilt, or on my website.
