Hello crafty friends,
Another inspiration was something I found at Patchwork Addiction in Windsor (NW Sydney). They were crazed about the Dear Jane book by Brenda Papadakis. It's based on a vintage quilt made in 1863 by Jane A. Stickle, featuring 225 patterns! The methods used are applique, foundation piecing, paper piecing, and good old fashioned traditional piecing. I bought the book and the rulers! Since I was working on a sampler earlier, this quilt intrigued me... no delighted me! I bought 3 meters of various cream tone-on-tone fabric to get me started. I can't wait to get started but first I will have to translate some of the patterns into 12" blocks for my sampler quilt.
