Student Jane Quilts - a few early finishes!

I am incredibly proud of all my Dear Jane students at Quilter's Corner! I have been blessed to work along side such sweet, wonderful, determined and talented women.

I created a 13 month Dear Jane BOM program for my students to follow and to my delight - a handful of ladies have completed their quilts a month EARLY!
Yes... finished Dear Jane quilt tops in just ONE year!

The first picture above show's Wanda with her quilt. The next picture is Kyle with ONE of her finished quilts. (yes, she made TWO of them)

Here is Kathy's quilt top:

This is Judy's quilt top:

Donna chose a navy sashing against civil war fabrics and has her center assembled:

Eileen is making (2) Jane quilts - one in 1930's reproduction prints and the other in Civil War reproduction prints. She has started the assembly process of her quilts. They are both coming together beautifully.

These are only 6 of my amazing Dear Jane students.
There are 23 more still working hard on their quilt tops.

Everyone received their last monthly assignments this past Monday. We have a special meeting planned for early March and I will be taking lots more pictures of my studentss and their progress then to share with you all.

the amazing journey continues.....

  16. Your students are a credit to you, their teacher, they have all made such beautiful quilts, and so many have finished the tops also.
    Looking forward to seing your Flower Basket Medallion progress now.

  17. congratulations to ALL of your students. You must feel like a mother hen. I must say your on-line tutorials were wonderful and it is no wonder they have all done so well. Like Pip i am looking forward to the Flower Basket Medallion.. i am tempted to get the pattern a sew along with you

  18. Awesome! Oh how I wish I could have joined your class! So inspiring to have others to keep you going on this beauty of a quilt!

  19. This is wonderful. They are all lovely and their creators (and teacher) are to be congratulated. Jane would have been proud!

  20. So many Jane's and each different from the other. My favorites would be any made with reproduction fabrics but each is quite an accomplishment regardless of fabric style.

  21. Amazing. What a beautiful collection of quilts. Congratulations to you all!

  22. Wowee! that is so cool to see all the different fabrics each person used. Thanks for sharing.

  23. Your students accomplishments are outstanding and their talent is so apparent. Students thrive with an excellent teacher - it is obvious you did a super job!!
