Dear Jane – B-1 Bachelor Buttons

Santa was kind to me in 2007. I received the Dear Jane book by Brenda Manges Papadakis, as well as the CD of patterns that goes with it. Not being a patient person, I hopped right in and completed what is probably the easiest block for me: B-1, Bachelor Buttons.
I am making my quilt in “scrappy” fabrics, using mostly what I have on hand. I’m going to try not to purchase fabric for this quilt and use up what I have, but if you’re a quilter, you know how that goes. The original quilt was made by Jane A. Stickle in 1863 during the Civil War. My quilt will use the same layout design, but with different fabrics and “my touch.” Each block is 4.5 inches finished, so these are little bitty things! If you are a regular reader of my blog, you will see the quilt grown here.
I will hang on to this quilt for years (hopefully) once it is completed, but the quilt is being made for my Grand daughter, Samantha Mosey. I will also be keeping a journal during this time to give to Samantha with the quilt – someday.
So, here you have block B-1, Bachelor Buttons. May the rest be as easy!

One thought on “Dear Jane – B-1 Bachelor Buttons

  1. Yay for getting your first block done! I did my first one tonight, the 9-patch (M10 block) which I think is the easiest block in the entire quilt that even a beginner like me could manage! Will bookmark your blog so I can watch your progress as I’m also going to make mine with a mix of fabric patterns starting with some of the tons of fabric I have bought in the past month. I found your link via the DJ list just now. Marja in London
