Dear Jane Club

Jul 6

There are a growing number of people in this area who are working on their own version of Dear Jane. They get together at The Quiltery on the first Thursday of each month  to continue working on their  blocks, sharing tips, ideas, fabric, patterns. Some are doing the quilting by hand, others are using their machines.

There are also some participants who have finished their Dear Jane and are working on another project, just enjoying the comaraderie of the group. Come join us!

About the legendary "Dear Jane" quilt...

The creator of the original "Dear Jane" quilt was Jane A. Stickle, born in Vermont on April 8, 1817. Jane made the quilt during the Civil War, completing it in 1863. It is a sampler quilt, comprised of 169 square 5” blocks, each one different. There are also 4 pieced corner triangles, 52 pieced border triangles, and a unique scalloped border. Altogether, there are an astounding total of 5,602 pieces in this quilt! Diagrams of the 255 blocks were compiled into a book by Brenda Papadakis.

 The original Dear Jane

Hi Cindy –

Today I’ve had to make the decision to cancel the Fire Island Hosta class which should begin next week. We had several people drop out for unexpected – but perfectly valid reasons – and could not fill their places.

However, I’m concerned that you have already put so much into the class…so here’s what I’ll do

·         Refund the class fee

·          Refund the pattern

·         You have some fabrics set aside that you were planning to pick up next Saturday – you are under no obligation to purchase them.

·         If you wanted to return any of the other larger pieces that you purchased I would be happy to redeem them


Please send me your address so that I can get a check off to you in good order.
