Dear Jane BOM
When I was still learning people how to quilt I had a big group of Dear Jane enthusiasts. Must say that I never completed a DJ quilt, just because I don't like to duplicate an existing pattern, but I have made around 100 blocks of them.
I had much fun swapping Dear Jane siggies with people all over the world. Here you see a top made of 140 of them, but I think I can make 2 more tops of the siggies left. About 10 years ago I had the pleasure to meet Brenda Papadakis, the author of the Dear Jane book in Amsterdam.
If you are a Janiac, she has just started a BOM on her website.
A lot of people are inspired through her, I have already heard a DJ song, there is a DJ embroidery pattern and even a DJ made of stained glass, look at: http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/album/575060081RJBiPv!

Hey Wilma. I like your signature quilt better then the Dear Jane ones. That's a lot of siggies you have collected.
