Brenda P and Dear Jane in Bennington Vermont
I often wonder how my work will stand up after 20 years let alone 150. It would appear that the Dear Jane quilt wasn't actually used. There is a lot that is unknown about the quilt and its maker and this allows one to speculate and fill in the blanks on your own.
On Saturday I attended a workshop given by Brenda. We first introduced ourselves and I was surprised to see that four people in attendance had come from Calgary and another attendee was from Australia. We did a couple of the more challenging blocks. It was so much fun to get out and do some serious sewing with like minded people. One woman at the workshop had completed one Dear Jane quilt in traditional colours and was now working on one in modern brights. Quite a contrast.
