The two hundred and twenty five patterns from the 1863 Jane A. Stickle Quilt. This is the book that started the world-wide Dear Jane craze. 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 Janes achievement and connecting her to our quilting lives today. Among the patterns and letters you will find a dozen quilts from the 1990s, all inspired by Janes supreme example of quiltmaking artistry in 1863. Brendas 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.
