Sue's Dear Jane Quilt

It's time to show the DEAR JANE! That's why I have been absent rom the blog...non stop busy with the DJ Quilt, for 6 weeks! 100 plus hours of quilting, approx. 8000m thread...

The quilting was done on the white fabric only, and ditching all around ALL of the colour pieces.

The first pic is the before...



After...






Happy Quilting!

  4. Magnificent work! I just got the Dear Jane book and just looking through the patterns I was geting nervous and biting my nails! This version is gorgeous. I love the bright and cheerful fabrics and I think that quilting only the background white really makes the intricate piecing and applique pop. Perfect choice. Congratulations on a spectacular finished quilt!
