Dear Jane - Kites
Drum roll - finished the corner kite blocks and thus all the blocks are done for the Dear Jane quilt. Now just to get the borders sewn to the center and begin quilting. I am definitely going to machine quilt, there are just too many seam in these blocks to make hand quilting pleasurable to me.
I patterned my signature block after Jane Stikle's block. She had written "In War Time" on her quilt, as she made it during the Civil War while her husband was away fighting. I chose "In Turmoil Times" as I began this quilt the day before "9/11" and it just seems to me that since then our country has just been in turmoil.
