It's Blogger Quilt Festival again and this time I finally finished my Dear Jane to enter!!:):)
Here the story: on a sunny Summer afternoon in 2009 I met with some quilting friends and one of them had the Dear Jane book. I had already seen this quilt and always thought it was crazy! We started looking at the book and no one was sewing that afternoon, we were to fascinated from all those beautiful little blocks. Fascinated and scared...Back home I started searching more informations about it...and looking, looking I decided to assume the challenge! Ordered the book and fabrics and started my DJ journey. And here is the final result!!!
