Ta..Dah!..".Inspired by Jane " is Finished!

Drum roll please!..
She's finished!....she's so beautiful, I'm so happy now that I stuck with her!

This has been the biggest quilting challenge I've ever attempted...just over three years to do and well worth every minute...I LOVE her!
Now to count up how many pieces went into making her, and add a label on the back...

I'm so excited, I can't think what else to write...Just that she's finished!!
Thank you for leaving me encouraging comments along the way...

Have a lovely day...♥

  28. This is quite an accomplishment. Your quilt is gorgeous. I am so glad that you followed through on your inspiration. The applique in the center so adds to the design. Even though your quilt does not have the DJ border, it is very recognizeable as being a DJ inspiration. The scallops on the border carry that through.
