Evening!! Today I am sharing a photo of a "challenge" that I know I want to have a go at - but right now, am not sure when and how I will do it. I am really enjoying getting to grips with Patchwork and Quilting at the moment, and a while back I heard about a book called Dear Jane.
It's written by a lady called Brenda Manges Papadakis and is based around an 1863 Quilt by Jane A. Stickle. In it, she shows the geometric patterns of all 225 patterns from the original quilt. Alongside this, she has a website that contains hints and tips for creating each block and pattern.
My hope is to start to work through the blocks - eventually creating my own quilt (which they call a Baby Jane). Now this is a mammoth undertaking, and I know that it will be a long term thing - but I have made a start by investing in the book and the quilting templates that have been designed to help create the blocks and patterns.
I need to make a decision as to whether this is going to just be an "as and when" project - or something I set out on with a more definite (if very long term) plan. As yet, I am not sure. So, watch this space.
