Dreaming Dear Jane

Hi all,

As you will know by now I'm obsessed working really hard on the Dear Jane quilt but ... there's still a long way to go. My first love will always be cross stitch and guess what ... via Amarin's site I've found a big cross stitch version (625 x 625 x-stitches) of the Dear Jane quilt for FREE. I've already downloaded and printed the charts :-).

Preview of part 1/1

I already knew the versions by Linda Myers (her designs often incorporate houses and quilt blocks in cross stitch form) but this one beats them for sure. Here's a couple of pictures for those not familiar with her works.

Quilt Sampler VI - Jane Stickle's Civil War Blocks

Quilt Sampler XIV - Jane's Quilt Garden   and   Garden Gate Quilt V - Neighborhood Quilts

Quilt Sampler XIII - A Village Gameboard   and   Quilt Sampler XI - 19th Century Blocks

Amish Quilt Show (one of my favourites)

A Seasonal Sampling
 Beautifull aren't they? And this brings us to the eternal cross stitchers dilemma .... so many beautifull designs to stitch and so little time! ;-)
Have a nice weekend!

I have a the Jennifer Myers Dear Jane counted cross stitch pattern, but haven't started working on it yet.
