Dear Jane....Oh I mean Insane Jane!

For the past 8 or so months I've been working...not steadily...on my Dear Jane blocks. What a challenge they are, but it's a fun challenge! I'm lovin' the paper piecing aspect of creating the blocks and finally getting into that groove.  Since I will probably only go through the process once in creating a Dear Jane quilt I'm doing three at one time...increasing my insanity x3! I'm creating a black and white DJ, a batik DJ, and I'm digitizing the blocks and creating an embroidered DJ. That makes my total blocks to complete an insane 625. But I can do it....I can do it. I'm in a Dear Jane Support Group and we meet once a month. We have a great time....dinner, then a show and tell and discussion about the assigned block of the month.

Here are the blocks I've completed. I still have a long long way to go!

Need to do the black and white version of this one.

This one has 40 patches in the 4.5 inch square. It's the block that has the most pieces. At least I got that one done. Now moving on to the blocks that have 39, 38, 37 pieces...haha!

Thanks for visiting.

Quilt On!
Live On!


  1. That is insane - making three of each block but Wow at your blocks! What a challenge and an accomplishment it will be when you're done! Your blocks are beautiful. Keep up the awesome - insane - work! You're doing great!!

  2. I think you are making great progress considering you are making THREE Janes!! All the blocks look wonderful. Love the black/whites!

  3. I think if I was in a support group I might still be making more blocks.
    Did I ask you where in Okla you are from? I am from Norman but moved to Australia 32 years ago.

  4. This is very cool. Great work! Great ideas! At least your insane work can be enjoyed and shared over dinner and fellowship with a good group. And support is always a good thing no matter what the endeavor!!
