Dear Jane Count

The Dear Jane Quilt  - counting the pieces
The Dear Jane Quilt  - counting the pieces
I have taken some time today to count my Dear Jane pieces.  As you may know, the original has her name and a count of all the pieces in the original Dear Jane quilt.  It is a job I have been putting off, thinking it would be long a tedious, but no so.  I also managed to find some rogue paper pieces along the way.  In total I have 5163 pieces in my Dear Jane quilt.  Jane Stickle had 5602.  I have clearly introduced modern day efficiencies into mine.  All I need to do now is to embroider the details onto the quilt.  Can you think of any other cryptic messages I should include?


  1. Remarkable!,Frances.
    I immediately thought of "sacred patience with my soul abide" in working with all those little pieces. LOL

  2. I think you should include how you had lots of people following your progress on the internet. What an accomplishment! Merry Christmas to you and yours.

  3. Congratulations on your accomplishment!

  4. I'm keeping a running count on my pieces. I have a little journal that I record each block and triangle in. As I record them, I record the number of pieces in the block and a running tally. I don't want to go back and try to count them all when (finally!) it is finished. Congratulations on your completion!

  5. I suggest the message..."Suzi, get off this quilt. It's an award winner!"
