Dear Jane Progress!

The borders are finally on and I can now say that my Dear Jane top is finished! It took me two years to get to this point, but that's with it sitting untouched in the closet for a good part of that time. My plan is to keep it out of the closet and finish it this winter. If the winter is as long and cold as I anticipate, then I will have lots of time for hand-quilting!

Your top looks very nice! I"m sure you'll get it hand-quilted this winter as you'll want it totally done now that you have it done this far!

Beautiful, Susan. See, all you needed was a month when you weren't doing anything and you could get it done.

Beautiful! I love the pieced border, gives it a great finish. I can't wait to see it again after you hand quilt it.

I think this is my all time favorite, just gives me a warm fuzzy feeling when I look at it. Although the quilt show was fantastic, somehow, I like the simple designs.

You all can be very proud of your showings.
