History of Jane Stickle & Dear Jane



My friend Kathy recently gave a link to some history of the "Mother Quilt" and it's maker.
In case you missed it the first time....

I love these stories and never seem to tire of them either.  So did a little searching to see what else popped up for your perusal.

The downfall to all of this.....it take you away from actually stitching a block!!!  :)

OK Sheri, you have managed to keep me sitting at the computer now for 30 minutes. I could of been sewing for those 30 minutes but I thank you because I truly enjoyed reading all the links that you shared with us. I am praying that your headaches go away forever!!! Karen
