Maypole Baby Jane Quilt

Ah, Jane, how I’m so incredibly thrilled you are done…

My favorite blocks (though they’re all pretty cool):

And my favorite triangles:

And this one has my favorite fabric too:

And my favorite corners (yes I picked two even though there are only four total):

Super cool scalloped edges:

By the creek (which has *just* enough water in it to have the sweet babbling brook sounds)…

And relaxing in the flat(!!) yard…

The hill… this is why I had to wait until it dried out a bit.  I think it’s steeper than the photo shows.

Why did I have to pick a photo spot so freakin’ far away?  At least when the creek floods there’s no chance of it reaching the house!

Oh, and this picture too. ;-)

My line isn’t high enough for a quilt this big and there is no way I’m carrying a ladder down there.

So that’s my Jane.  I still can’t believe she’s done.  I’ve taken two naps under her and she’s amazingly warm.  Wub.

    Fabulous!!!! What an amazing quilt! You should be so proud. Like crazy proud. And what an inspiration! Hopefully I’ll actually finish mine one day. :)

    Emily, I have to shamefully admit that when you’d show these squares and triangles I couldn’t see the beauty in them. I wondered why you were toiling so long on it! But the finished product is SO gorgeous! Such a work of art! Congratulations on your masterpiece! :)

    OMG! that quilt is to die for. You must be so proud of yourself. I love all the colours you’ve used. Wow, certainly something to aspire too. I’ll have to keep following your blog for inspiration. Love all the pirate posts too :-)

    I am with Melissa – so often when you posted blocks I thought “oh, so fussy” or didn’t love the colors. But I should have trusted your vision, it is AMAZING.

    Your Jane quilt is lovely. Just found it today. I’m working on one too. I’m on row H. I don’t have it on one of my blogs I only update it after we get together which is every 6 months.
    Thanks for the inspiration.

    WOW! You have really upped he anti for best use of color, imagination, creativity and so much more. Our beloved Dear Jane looks great in any fabric category from antique to modern. Emily, your DJ is now among my favorites. I absolutely love it.

    Hello Emily, I am sure u r busy with the up coming move, kids in school and other fun stuff. But I have been wondering for ever what you ever did with your Dear Jane. Do you use her?

      Jane is folded nicely and sitting on a shelf. *way* too hot to actually use it right now but I did use it occasionally in the winter. Will again this year — it’s a very snuggly quilt!
