Dear Jane Back Cover Information

Calling all lovers of quilts, patterns and quilt history! In Dear Jane, a twentieth century quilting teacher meets a nineteenth century quiltmaker! Brenda Manges Papadakis has lovingly recreated the two hundred twenty-five patterns from the celebrated Jane A. Blakely Stickle quilt.

Accompanying the patterns are a remarkable series of letters from Brenda to Jane, drawing us into the historical context of Jane’s achievement and connecting her to our quilting lives today. Among the patterns and letters you will find a dozen quilts from the 1990’s, all inspired by Jane’s supreme example of quiltmaking artistry in 1863.

For the past five years, Brenda’s meticulous research has been a devoted labor of love, not only for a splendid quilt but also for the woman who created it. You will be moved by her letters to Jane, and enlightened about the times in which she lived. You will also be kept delightfully busy with the large collection of blocks which challenge you to create your own Baby Jane quilt.
