Dear Jane Day

Sally with a small quilt
Today I attended a "Dear Jane" workshop where we learnt techniques to aid us in making the 4.5" blocks that originate in a 1863 quilt made "in time of war" by Jane Stickle. We tackled some complex piecing and techniques new to many of us. Sally brought her own wonderful version of the quilt but also lots of vintage blocks and other items to show us - very in depth in terms of information and techniques. I asked if I could post pictures on my blog.
It was good to hand piece for a change but we still managed to take up lots of space even though we didn't have our machines with us.
