I had been working on a DEAR JANE podcast for a couple of weeks. Then Susan, the HISTORY QUILTER posted her podcast about Dear Jane. I contacted her and told her my predicament as I did not want to step on her toes, or copy her podcast. ( This can be a problem with such a tight community of pod-casters.) She gave me her blessing to continue and post my podcast. So here is my adventure with Dear Jane. I may have touched upon this information in the past as this quilt was an integral part of my life for a long time and I feel guilty having abandon her.

DJ ALTERNATE LIST
My favorite of the DJ off-shoot mailing list.
TILDE, one of the first Janiacs, moderates this group. Her motto is, A NEEDLE A DAY BRINGS PROGRESS. She feels if we just work on a project a little each day, your project will get finished. I try to practice her motto….. BUT IT IS SO HARD!

I listened to Annie Smith’s podcast 209 about being a quilt judge and what she looks for in quilting, whens she judges. Even if you never enter a judge show this is important information as it is an explanation of good workmanship and it will help you make better quilts.
