I have been working on my own version of this quilt since 2010. I am using only shades of blue and cream as I work on my quilt. Currently I have completed 144 blocks and 34 border triangles. I have used 3698 pieces (yes, I have counted every one!) Here is a picture of the five blocks I have finished most recently. Each block will finish at 4 1/2" X 4 1/2".
I am using the book, Dear Jane, by Brenda Manges Papadakis. It is so rewarding to take each block and try to figure out a way to reproduce it. At the same time, many of the blocks frustrate me when I can't get them to look just like Jane's blocks. My goal is to complete my "Baby Jane" by the end of 2012. When I am done I plan on visiting the Bennington Museum to see the original pieced and appliqued by Jane A. Stickle.
As I complete more blocks I will post pictures.
I am off to play with Annie.
Until next time......
