More Dear Jane quilts - from Nantes

P1080344I have never seen a Dear Jane quilt I do not like, and in Nantes there were a lot of different Dear Jane quilts.
The exhibition room was full and the hall outside had quilts decorating all the walls high up.

P1080345P1080346P1080347My friend Brigitte and myself got a good stretch of the arms taking photos.

P1080348P1080349Not my sharpest photo I am afraid, but I will show you anyway.
This quilt is a Quilted Diamonds quilt – a diamond shaped version of Dear Jane brought to the quilt world by Linda Franz in 2 books.

P1080350This pink beauty belongs to Jolanda.

I talked to the maker of this quilt, a lovely lady from England, and she told me that she had merged the Dear Jane pattern with an antique English quilt.
Isn’t it a lovely idea – make the quilt your own!

…….. and do not be afraid to bring a friend……

Thank you for sharing the photos, it must have been an amazing experience to see the quilts in real life.

Those blocks are small so the pieces would be tiny-- are they done as foundation paper piecing or just very careful machining? I love your colour combination as shown on your previous post.

Christine Robinson said...

Beautiful quilts, thanks for the photos. I wonder what Jane Stickle would think of all these.

Great pictures, Hanne. They really captured the feel of the exhibit. Hope Brenda sees them! I was re-inspired to continue the one I started in 1993, when I was never going to complete the entire quilt. Since then I have done hundreds of blocks, just not the ones to finish my quilt. Although Brenda P loved the background, I grew tired of trying to applique with those tiny painted on motifs making the needling difficult. But I have another idea and will just use the ones I have. I, too, have never seen a Dear Jane quilt I did not like!

What a wonderful time you must have had! I think my favorite Dear Jane's are the ones with more color.

Jolanda said...
