I am a huge fan of the Dear Jane quilt. I have one started (key word!).. and when I spotted a cool version of it I had to find out what it was all about! Friend Kim Caskey and Jeltje van Essen also share a love of the Dear Jane quilt. They have worked on some projects together and crafted the idea of a friendship version with the blocks colored as interlocking hearts. This layout is simply divine! Kim is going to tell me about the project, I can't wait!

American Patchwork Quilting Pocast episode 288 Mary Abreu

This year I've asked author and sewing expert Mary Abreu to join me each month and we'll dive deep into a topic. We'll be chatting about core quilting techniques, about details that I know you want to learn how to do better, and about making all this sewing fun! This month we are going to hit a few basics, some of the things people have told me they need to 'fill in the gaps' about. Maybe you learned to sew a long time ago, or maybe you are self taught, or just need to brush up! Mary and I have developed a GREAT set of topics to cover each month when she visits!
