Jane A. Stickle Quilt and A Give Away

No, I am not giving away a quilt!! I wish I could!

Several of you out in blogland are making, or completed, a version of the Jane A. Stickle quilt first recreated by Brenda Papadakis:


In fact, in this month’s Fabric Trends magazine there is a gorgeous version created in batiks and black by quilters in NY City.

Now, there is no way that I will ever make this quilt.  I think that is is beautiful and  I would love to have one but I know my limits.  I have several projects going at once because I get bored quickly am easily inspired by new ideas all around me.  However I did find a version of the quilt that I think I can complete.  It is a counted cross stitch version designed by Linda Meyers:


So far I have done this much:


I am working on 16 count aida cloth (I don’t do linen) and the needle on the side will give you an idea how big each block is.  The finished size will be about 12 “ square.

When I got the pattern I also picked up this one:


I will never make it so I have decided to have a give away.  Just comment on this post and I will draw a winner Friday night at 10 p.m. (EST).  One entry per person please! Thanks and good luck!

What beautiful blocks. Can't wait to see the whole project. As a matter of fact would like to see the work in progress at one of our guild meetings.

Pretty! I would love to win! I am the same way; I admire those Dear Jane quilts but don't think I would ever make one.

Love the cross stitch that you're working on. I have to agree that I just wouldn't have the patience (or skill) for the Dear Jane quilt yet.

Before I was a quilter I did tons of cross stitch. I would to love to win so I could spend some time with my first love.

Thanks for the chance.
