Sisters Weekend

I just returned from Ohio and a fabulous sisters quilting weekend.  My sister MJ completed her Dear Jane quilt and take a look at this masterpiece.

MJ's Dear Jane quilt top

Is this a WOW or what?  She has been working on it for 7 years! She began in a class at her local quilt shop and worked on it as she had time over the years.  Mostly a winter project, as she is an avid gardener and works outside in the warm months, she pieced all the blocks and triangles, many by hand, over the past years.  Finally done she trusted me with it to take to my favorite quilter, Brenda Weien, to quilt.

Sisters MJo and Gail came down to Columbus from Berea and Mansfield to round out the group.  Good eats, good drinks, and good times!

I worked on blocks from last year's BOM.  I never got them made last year as I was so busy designing and teaching.  So it was the perfect weekend to work on them, at last.  Blocks 1 and 2 are made and ready to be machine stitched.

Block 1 Agave Block 2014 BOM

Block 2 Splash Block 2014 BOM

The new BOM block for March 2015 is posted and the newsletter will go out tomorrow.  Had to do some catch up after being away last week.


  1. Beautiful BOM! The Dear Jane quilt top is spectacular!

  2. Bello Dear Jane de tu hermana. Felicitaciones para ella!!
    Yo me quedé muy atrás con estos blocks de Dear Jane.

  3. Сколько терпения у вашей MJ! Я тоже шью DJ уже год. Вам удачи и всего хорошего семье!

  4. Sorry for the tardiness of the comment. I had a new grandchild born last week so I was involved in keeping watch over older siblings and am just getting back to my eye candy. I am very curious as to how one quilts a Dear Jane top like that beauty. Do you do an all over like a baptist fan or do you do custom on each block? I'd love to get some ideas. Beautiful work as usual Reeze, and I am very jealous of your freedom from the 8 - 5 grind.


I'd love to know what you think! Thanks for sharing your ideas.
