I am starting a new class next week and I will be working on two Dear Jane quilts. The class meets once a month and will last for one year.
One will be in these Civil War fabrics with a cream muslin background.
I so admire the talent that it took to make that quilt. Jane must have been one patient lady to hand stitch & applique all of those pieces and then quilt it.
One corner block is stitched with the following:
In War Time 1863, Pieces 5602, Jane A. Stickle.
This is the fabric for the 2nd quilt.
This print is called "The Quiltmaker's Gift". I have had this fabric for several years. At one time I was going to use it on the back of a quilt, but changed my mind. I think it will work up well using a cream color background. I believe it is quite appropriate to use this fabric because Jane Stickle was certainly a quiltmaker with a gift.
