Some of my favorites from the exhibit, Twenty Years of Dear Jane. I was thrilled to see this exhibit because I qualify as a Janiac. Information on Dear Jane can be found here. The original quilt was completed in 1863 and Brenda Papadakis published the patterns in 1996. Twenty years later, with almost 130,000 copies sold, people in over 35 countries are still enjoying the Jane Journey. The works here celebrate the common bond of friendships formed and quilts made.

but using Japanese fabrics (some looked like kimono fabric) was beautiful!
