Dear Jane

Jane Stickle finished her quilt in 1863. It has 5,602 pieces.


"It is a quilt which compels one to notice it, to contemplate it, to be awed by it." ~Richard L. Cleveland

And now you can create your own "Dear Jane". Paper Pieces has joined forces with Brenda Papadakis to bring you an easier way to recreate this stunning quilt. From the complete pre-cut Paper Piece packs to the book that has inspired all of us. Start your journey today and get to know Jane.

Everyone at Quiltsmith has loved the Dear Jane quilt ever since Jane Papadakis published her book. We think this EPP (English Paper Piecing), which has simplified some of the block designs, is fantastic. We cannot wait to play. Quiltsmith is offering Dear Jane as a BOM (Block of the Month), so Aussie quilters can deal directly with an Aussie shop.

There is no fabric with this BOM. This allows you to personalise your Dear Jane quilt. You can make Jane in the fabrics used in Jane's book, reproductions from the 1800's, we call that look "Classic Jane", you could make "Modern Jane" with contemporary fabrics (see photo) or "Vintage Jane" with those fabrics. The selection is endless. The only quilt you will not make is "Plain Jane".

You will need to have a copy of Brenda Papadakis's Dear Jane book. This is available from Quiltsmith.

Details:

  • the BOM runs for 18 months,
  • the finished quilt size is 2.16 m x 2.16 m (85" x 85"),
  • each month you will receive the papers for English Paper Piecing, the modified block instructions, and instructions for the lattice and cornerstone pieces. You will also receive full set of acrylic templates for the quilt.
