Dear Jane Book

Item #: O-DEARJ

Author: Brenda Papadakis This is the book that started the world-wide Dear Jane craze. It's the perfect companion to the Dear Jane quilt design CD-Rom.



The story of Dear Jane

In her 1996 book, 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. These quilts are not included in the Quilt Gallery on the Dear Jane CD-ROM. 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.
