Jane A. Sickle Quilt
How in heaven's name did you get this magnificent quilt done? I have been saving all my little bits and pieces from my Civil War Diary quilt with the thought I will make a 'Dear Jane' quilt. Testing the waters, I started with the first block. Traced all my pieces onto freezer paper and have ironed them onto my fabric. Thinking this project would be a wonderful hand piecing project that I can do in front of the TV. Thought it would be easy to sew using an English paper piecing method.
|So I have been saving all of my bits and pieces from my Civil War Diary quilt thinking "These will be perfect for a Dear Jane quilt" I decided I would give the first block in the book a try.|
|I traced and iron on all my pieces on my fabric using the freezer paper method thinking how hard can it be! I've done English Paper Piecing and finished a double sized Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt.|
|I start sewing in front of the TV and scream, I need more light, I need new glasses and so on.....|
|I managed to get half of the block done. Yippee... half done.... and that's where I last left my Dear Jane Quilt almost a month ago. I vow to get back to it.... maybe next week.... I'll just keep saving my Civil War Diary Scraps.|
