Dear Jane.......

It's quite humbling don't you think when a quilt such as Jane Stickle's comes to light? A labour of love sewn with only basic tools unlike the ones we have at our disposal today.

Thanks to Brenda Papadakis and her reproduction of the quilt we can appreciate Jane's time, effort and expertise and how these are embedded in each of the two hundred and twenty five patterns that make up the quilt.

I want to join in with quilters around the world as they also emulate this wonderful quilt, putting their own spin on it and experience first hand how satisfying it will be to complete something so labour intensive and mathematically challenging so, here goes......wish me luck!
