My Jane Quilt on Exhibit

Here is my finished Modern Jane quilt. I taught a Dear Jane club and made this - working along side my students. The quilt was constructed using a mix of batiks and modern prints.
I was incredibly humbled and honored that Brenda Papadakis asked me to submit this quilt as part of the Celebration of Jane Stickle Exhibit. The (150th anniversary)exhibit took place at the Vermont Quilt Festival the end of June.

Above is a picture of Brenda giving a lecture by my quilt at the exhibit.

The experience and women I've met on this journey have been so wonderful. I am so grateful to Brenda for her years of dedication in preserving this great American Treasure!

I'm still working on my Civil war and 1930's Jane quilts. I will be starting up another Dear Jane club this fall so I'm hopeful to have these 2 Jane quilts completed by the end of next year.

Hello, Aunt 'Reen! WOW! Your quilt is wonderful! Congrats! I can not enter most blogged "13 months of Jane" in which your tutorials were of great help for me. It is now a private blog? From already thank you very much for your time in each Tutorial, because that was really cool for me! I go ahead, already got half of the completed quilt. Still missing much, but I'm happy!
