Two Dear Jane quilt blocks

I started a Dear Jane quilt years ago but I’ve only made 3 rows. I’m doing it with foundation piecing as much as possible.

Watching how to make these two videos may encourage you to start your own Dear Jane quilt.

Where to get the Jane A. Stickle Quilt patterns

Susan Gatewood’s paper foundation . All patterns are free though Susan says “I only ask that you consider making a donation to the Bennington Museum, in Bennington, Vermont. And if you do, it would make me tremendously happy if you would tell them that you have received help from me.” I totally recommend Susan’s patterns as they are very easy to use.
