What lunacy is this?

Anina of Twiddletails has generously offered to guide us through the making of a Dear Baby Jane quilt & has set up a blog especially to plot the progress of those brave (or crazy!) enough to join her in making this magnificent quilt. The original Dear Jane quilt was stitched by Jane A. Stickle in the United States in 1863:So, in a momentary lapse of reason, I have decided to join up! Pick yourself up of the floor - yes, I can see you falling about laughing hysterically at this point! Just humour me a little! The aim is to complete two blocks each week, which sounds quite reasonable until you realise they are but 5 inches square. Yikes - must brush up on some foundation piecing! Anina is being kind, and starting off with some simple blocks. Here are my first two:
B13 Four Corner Press
C9 Jane's Tears

  10. Welcome to our little Baby Jane group. Your blocks look great. Th reds and creams in the four corner press are gorgeous! You could make a whole quilt out of just that block and colors.
    I am amazed at your primary school stitchings! They look perfect. Good luck with your Baby Jane blocks, I can't wait to see more! Love Stacy
