I am so in love with this quilt!!! I'm going to have to make my own version I do believe! Can't wait to see what you've got planned for the border!


Gorgeous quilt! I just took a look at your flickr site and your quilts just about knocked my socks off they are so great. I marked many as "favorites". You are a very talented quilter.

What wonderful Personality this quilt has. I just Love it :-)

love the quilt.
btw, my husband did go to a yuwazawa but bought no fabric. He did get me a Quilt Japan magazine. I think he found out quickly that it was much harder to shop in a yuwazawa than he thought.

Those are fun blocks! Such a variety of interesting fabrics.

Great scrappy project! I love the recent addition of blocks...especially how you sneaked a little larger green stipe in with the smaller scale...perfect!

Don't you just love getting together with other quilters??

In stitches,
Teresa :o)


What a small world it is, so neat that you met up with Barb. I love how the scrappy quilt is coming along, such wonderful fabric combos. I have stacks of fabric to wash and press too, not my favourite job but it helps me remember what I have.


Oh! I was pleasantly surprised to see Wendy!
Hi Wendy!

(Hi Jan!)


Great quilt and very cute photo. It is a small world afterall.


I LOVE those sawtooth blocks Jan - can't wait to see how you set them. Very funny story about Barb - it's a VERY small world!


Jan- I think we are living parallel quilting lives! It's been a winter of organizing, searching for lost projects and the like.

LoveLoveLoveLOVELOVE this quilt! Might have to start one with a similar feel!


Oh Jan, I love that Blog of Barb's. How nice to get to meet her.
I've adored this quilt for a while, so glad you're working on it again. It's scrappy heaven.


Hi Jan!!
It was such a delight to meet you last week. We're kindled spirits and it's rare to feel like you've been friends upon first meeting. I so wish I was back in Illinois and could sit and sew with you and all my friends each week.
Just borrowed daughters lap top to catch up while on puppy watch -
I LOVE these blocks - makes me wanna run upstairs and sew....maybe this weekend.

Hi Wendy - it was great to meet you - you have so many, many talents, I can see why everyone likes and admires you new ladies to the group!

Jan Smith

Such a great quilt, and it's fun to put faces with names - thanks for sharing these pics.


I love that quilt - so vibrant and fun!!! I've been organizing and finding a lot of "lose" projects. It's fun to bring them back out and work on them.

Pam Cope

Jan - thanks for sharing another fabulous quilt! I love the lime green & red together with the light blue & everything. I will have to add that to my list of fun things I want to sew (someday). Also love hearing about your quilt group. Mine is the Monday Nite Bowlers, a very important support group! So nice to have quilting friends and blogging connects us with so many more.


Yeah. I'm glad to see you're working on my "favorite" quilt again!


Fun! Love this quilt so far. Can't wait to see you get back to your red/green applique too!


Once a Piecemaker, always a Piecemaker. Watch what you say and do, Jan, cause they'll be talking about you too for the next seven years (just kidding). Glad you and Barb had a chance to meet.


So glad to see you working on that quilt again, and bigger can only be better - yay!

and just a personal boo for me: I had not read your blog in a couple weeks when I saw the first Tokyo show post because I wanted to take the time to really enjoy the quilts, etc., and here I miss a ton of giveaways! Lucky readers who didn't procrastinate! The fabrics you bought were just gorgeous.


I love this quilt so much! It makes me so happy to just look at it.


I am going to need a nice photo of that quilt when its done to hang on my wall for inspiration. I love the colorfulness of it, something about it just speaks to me.


I love your quilt. It is so bright and cheerful! Loved your story about your quilt group friends - what a small world!

Jenny G.

I just love the quilt you are making! I can't wait to see it finished!

Mary Vaughan

I love the quilt you're working on - ditto what others have said - it's so happy! I'm looking forward to meeting you when Barb and I come to the quilt show in April. Barb misses her old group sooooooo much!

John'aLee Burk

What a delightful quilt. I loved hearing about your group that has meant for so many years too. We must keep the old fashioned quilting bee going in our generation. Keep up the amazing work!


jan, hi from italy! i am interested in knowing the name of this block, i just saw a smaller version of it on the Empire quilters as a block of the month (link on the selvage blog) with just two sawtooth units instead of three and they called it double friendship. I just added the two to my second level class in order to teach a simple and quick method to get 8 half square triang. units out of two large squares and only 4 seams...Thank you!!!!
