Dear Jane Quilt

Posted on November 14, 2011 at 9:12am 8 Comments

Hi all, This is my first day on "Quilt With Us" I'm a new member.  I am beginning my Dear Jane quilt.  Can anyone give me advice.  I ordered the book and to my disappointment, no instructions at all.  Thanks.

Gayle, are you already doing yourborders? Good for you. Here is how I did mine. I added a 4 inch border all around. Then after I made the quilt sandwich, I marked the scallops using a cereal bowl. I had purchased an expensive scallop ruler, but then when I was ready to use it, the scallops weren't deep enough for me. The cereal bowl was perfect, go figure. Then, after the whole quilt has been quilted, cut away the excess border an apply your bias binding to the scallops. Hope this makes sense to you. Let me know if you need more help. --Susan

Good luck with your Dear Jane. I finished mine a couple of years ago, and it was a wonderful journey. I don't know if you know it or not, but there is a Dear Jane computer CD that you can purchase, and you can use it to print off either paper piecing patterns or template patterns to use when making the blocks. I could not have completed my quilt without the CD. In fact, I didn't even own a book when I made my quilt.  I learned to love paper piecing when making my Dear Jane quilt.  There is also a web site called thatquilt.blogspot.com that gives suggestions about making the blocks if you don't like paper piecing. I didn't know about that site until my quilt was finished, but I do know quilters who have found it to be helpful.
