Dear Jane Support Group
Our Dear Jane Support Group will meet during the lunch break of the Ocean Waves regular meeting. Anyone who is interested is invited to join us. We will be sharing tips and techniques to completing the blocks as well as showing our finished blocks and our goof ups as well. There are many alternate sizes and layouts. No matter if you want to make the entire quilt or just a few blocks, it is still a Dear Jane.
What is a Dear Jane Quilt? The original quilt was made in 1863 during the American Civil War by Jane Stickle (1817-1896). This sampler quilt is made up of 169 miniature blocks and 52 triangles. Each block and triangle are unique. The quilt permanently resides at the Bennington Museum in Vermont. Today there are many people around the world who are making their own versions this quilt. It is said to be the most often started and the least often finished quilt there is. It inspired the term “Finished is better than perfect”. We intend to help each other finish our chosen Dear Jane projects.
So bring you lunch and come sit in with the Jane-iacs!
