My Jane, My Journey by Maureen Mackie
I first noticed Brenda's Dear Jane book in 2005. I loved it instantly, but never thought l was capable of completely it. I have read Brenda's words over and over, and in my life when things were hard at times with the loss of my mum and mother-in-law and just other ups and downs, Jane was a constant in my life and a comfort.
She took me on a new journey and has since travelled the world with me, given me new friendships and great happiness. She still gives me pleasure everyday. My Jane, My journey was started in August 2006 and completed in 2016.
It was chosen to be shown at the Houston quilt show exhibition to commemorate the 20th year anniversary of the Dear Jane book, by Brenda Papadakis.
I hand pieced, appliqued and quilted it.
