My Wife’s “Insanity Revisited”


“Insanity Revisited” is actually the name of Karen’s second “Dear Jane” quilt. She still has  a couple more rows to complete and the scalloped blocks around the outside.

Dear Jane quilts are based on a Civil War era quilt made by Vermont resident  Jane A. Stickle.

A Dear Jane has 169 blocks, each with a unique pattern and has a total of about 5,600 pieces.

The original quilt was finished in 1863, during the American civil war. It is in the Bennington Museum in Bennington, Vermont, and is on display every September and October.
