Dear Jane Book
This is not because the information was not available, but because I had not yet decided how best to retrieve it. Andrew Pierce of Boston and Melissa Perkins of Shaftsbury provided me with a wealth of information about Jane and her family.
She was born Jane A. In the census, taken shortly before Erastus Blakely died, he had seven persons living in his household, four males and three females.
Daughters Emily and Caroline died in , one month apart, at the ages of fifteen and sixteen. Jane, who was twelve at the time, lived with her parents, her brother Erastus, age eleven, and her sister, Sarah Ann, age nineteen.
Two white males are also listed in this census, one age fifteen to twenty, and the other age twenty to thirty. Perhaps they were farm hands.
Erastus Blakely wrote his will October 2, , three months prior to his death. It is interesting to note that a list of household furnishings includes two quilts valued at five dollars. Stickle is presumed from the census of , which names him as head of the household.

It does not appear that Jane and Walter had children of their own. However, a search of the Shaftsbury school district records reveals that they assumed responsibility for at least three children. Her occupation is that of farmer, and she is forty-three years old. Her husband Walter is living with his brother-in-law Erastus, perhaps a temporary arrangement in order to help with the planting or repairs to farm equipment.
Whatever the reason for their separation, Walter and Jane were listed together in the census, with a farm and a domestic servant, Sarah Bump.
Unfortunately, they were forced into bankruptcy in What did Jane do for all those years without Walter or the rest of her family?

We know that she finished The Quilt in Jane was still a boarder at the time she passed away on March 2, at the age of seventy-nine. You can colour the blocks inside the software see below as well, but I believe there is something to be said about pencil crayons and paper.
Use the software to calculate fabric requirements Yes, when embarking on a project of this magnitude, it is important to know how much fabric one is going to need. I then printed the plan for my reference.
In the photo below, you can see that I have labelled and totalled all of my fabrics by colour. This is based on 42 inch wide yardage — the program allows you to adjust the width.
Sorry I had to label because I was out of coloured ink at the time of printing — My daughter had a school project which used up all of my ink!
Use the software to print your blocks. I can print my blocks!?!
You can print the cutting instructions for each block. Depending on the block you want to print, you can print rotary cutting instructions, templates, or a foundation pattern!Thanks, Mom! Move or delete unnecessary templates before you print.
Use the software to print your blocks. There are over 60 quilts, many of which have close-ups of blocks, stitching, or quilt labels as well notes from the quilters themselves.
