Oh Dear, Jane, Jane, Jane, Jane..........

Today is the first day of the Dear Jane Exhibition

A group of us (all Janiacs) went for a visit and were not disappointed.
It's surprising how many "mad" women there are in the world if this was anything to go by.
I've come home with a full memory card on the camera.
The skill range went from "a good, honest quilt" to those that you only read about in 
"The Quilting Masters' Gazette".
Chocolate sashings and borders, small and large cones, applique only,
rainbow setting stones and Jane's School House are just a sampling of  the the Stitchers' 
tweaks to this Historical quilt.

All Red with an interesting border!
Gentle aquas, greens and mauves
A mix of original blocks and Jane blocks for variety
Lovely binding
"Forty shades of grey" - the front
and the back

Jane's School House

Pam Hammer, President of the AQA
(Australian Quilters Association) was resplendent in her "Jane inspired apron"
Congratulations to AQA for putting on an interesting and  successful show.
(P.S. I have so many more photos a shame not to share - stay tuned for more on Dear Jane)
