Mighty Minis

Some years ago I became enthralled with the "Dear Jane" quilts. I spent months working on thse small 4.5 inch finsihed blocks and fell in love with the small format. For this quilt I used the blocks from the Dear Jane book as well as some from "Dear Hannah" and from Judy Rothermel. You can click on the photo to get a closer look at the birds, flowers and Saturn ! I was very fortunate to have been able to meet Brenda Papadakis - the author of Dear Jane - and she is a person. Warm, generous ,caring and talented. This finished as a king size quilt. The worst thing is (or maybe it's a good thing really) that I am getting an urge to begin another - somewhat wilder - one . This quilt was how I taught myslef to applique - in all of it's wonderful, delightful forms! I used an atypical border which I think broke up the uniformity of the blocks.
