Dear Jane Fabric


I've been a bit nervous about participating in the Dear Baby Jane quilt group. I'm a novice, at best, so I'm sure I'm in over my head. Just going to the store to buy the fabric was causing me stress.

I'm also cheap when it comes to fabric. I buy from the clearance pile, the remnant bin, and what's on sale. Goody for me that a certain large craft chain was having a sale on fat quarters ($1.00 each!) this weekend.

I've calmed down a bit now. I have a pile of red fabrics, my Dear Jane book, and a helpful bunch of people to answer my silly questions.

First block is B-13. Looks simple enough...whew.

Those reds are fantastic! I can't wait to see how the block turns out. I am a novice quilter, but definitely admire the skill it takes.

I LOVE your fabrics! I can't wait to see how they come together. And you're right-- with my green and white and your red and white-- our quilts will indeed look very festive together! :)

I love your fabric choices. I am playing catch up on the Dear Jane Quilt. I couldn't decide if I wanted to do the quilt or not, but now that I've joined in, I'm having fun.
