2 Kites

I just posted two kites on my blog. One is not yet done. Both were started about a year ago. I must be the slowest Janiac on the planet! You can read more about them  here and here . . . but I'll warn you that tonight, even the blog postings are incomplete. I'm just trying to get the photos posted before the Dear Jane gathering at the Vermont Quilt Festival. The festival is all weekend. The special event is this Sunday at 11 AM. The festival also features 30 Dear Jane quilts in commemoration of the 150th anniversary of Jane Stickle's quilt. Scroll down to see some info I pasted in here re: the exhibit....followed by details about the Sunday event.

Celebrating Jane Stickle

MILLER NORTH
Thirty quilts made "In the manner of Jane A. Stickle" will celebrate the 150th anniversary of her 1863 Civil War sampler. The quilts are assembled by Brenda Papadakis, author of Dear Jane, The Two Hundred Twenty-five Patterns from the Jane A. Stickle Quilt. 
   
                         Dear Jane: detail by Chris White
Each quilt varies in color and design and reflects the maker's interpretation of Jane's quilt. You will be inspired to make your own after visiting this exhibit.
Curator: Brenda Papdakis, San Antonio, TX
