Winter Stitching

 Look what came out of the dungeon!? It's my Jane Stickle quilt....it has only been a 10 or 11 year project! LOL  Will winter of 2011-2012 be the finale?! I sure hope so!!
 Here's the cute red and green block turned into a little pillow. I had to replace the hst red and still managed to cut off the points. I love it anyway.
Here's Henny Penny one more time with my initials appliqued in the corner. I like it a lot better without the big blank spot.

  1. A Jane Stickle quilt is a big accomplishment no matter how long it takes! I've owned the book about as long as you have been working on it and I haven't made a single block. Your progress looks great to me!!

  2. At least you have started your Jane Stickle. I've yet to even begin! Some day....and then I'll have it finished in my really old age :/

    Henny Penny looks great with your initials in their place :D

  3. Thats a great winter project! I love the little Cakestand block pillow you made, my favorite block, well one of my favorite blocks. I was wondering how your mom is doing?

  4. Oh boy, how great is it to get all the way to the quilting part on the DJ? I started mine at least 10 years ago and have only a handful of blocks.

  18. What a gorgeous quilt, definitely finish it.
    Now if I can take my own advice, lol. I got the magazine with the wool runner, how did you sew the pieces and did it get bulky?

  24. My DJane has been hiding in its box, not seeing the light of day for many months. And I'm nearly done with the center. I really should get it out and do a bit more.
    Nice projects, every one.

  25. My DJ project is still in clear sleeves of my DJ pattern notebook. I did make a couple this past spring, but nothing since then.

  26. If you reached the border you are well on your way, you might finish it this winter ;-). Depends on how much time you have, or should I say make, to quilt it.

  31. Good luck finishing your DJ! What an accomplishment.

  32. At least your DJ is ready to quilt. I think I still only have around 60 blocks done. A decade project for sure! Yours looks great. Your initials were just the right touch on Henny Penny.

  33. No pressur - but I can't wait to see the Dear Jane quilt all finished! It is absolutley wonderful.

  34. Wow Lori - love your DJ! Mine is still just a pile of blocks (and not a huge pile, either!). I kind of like the cut off points - it gives the pillow even more charm.

  38. I just pulled my Dear Jane top out of the closet today and decided I'm going to get it basted so I can start to hand quilt it this winter. I started mine in 2001 and just keep coming back to it. Your quilting looks wonderful, and I hope to see the finished quilt on your blog later this winter.

  42. Oh my! Your DJ must contain some amazing older line prints, how wonderful!!!! And....you are handquilting it!!! They do say though that every woman who makes and complets a DJ automatically becomes a Goddess!!! Hats off to you, hope you get a lot of stitching time over the winter!!!
