Just got back from a nice dinner with hubby and finished reading all the messages posted in this category. I loved seeing the progress of everyone's quilts.

I want to hand piece mine but am not sure how to go about the cutting and sewing of such small pieces.

JoJo, have you seen Dana's Dear Jane? Have you read the Dear Jane threads?

XXOO, Damaris

Okay, I must be the only quilter on the planet that hadn't seen a Dear Jane quilt. Well today I was leaving my local quilt store when right at the door was a quilt folded and laying over a quilt rack. I stopped to look at it because the colors initially caught my eye. And then I realized how small each of the blocks were and how detailed each one was. Oh my goodness -- I fell in love right there at the door.

The teacher that teaches a monthly class at the shop was there and filled me in on the history of the original quilt (and to think the lady that created it had no computers!!!!) and the person that reproduced it in book form.

I think I will attend the October meeting to learn more. She said they don't sew -- more of a show & tell and discussion of the best ways to create the blocks.

They have a book available that has the patterns and a disk from EQ. She told me that nearly all of the new students say that if they knew what they know now they would have chosen the EQ disk instead of the book.

Does anyone have both the book and the disk -- what do you think?
