"Jane Invites Hannah for a Dutch Treat" by Shirley L. Olsen - This quilt was begun as part of the Utah Quilt Guild Dear Jane challenge.  The final stitches were taken in July of 2010. (2 years later). Shirley wanted a bigger quilt than the "Dear Jane" quilt, so she used all of the "Dear Jane" blocks, plus some of the "Dear Hannah" blocks as well as some from "Dutch Treat".  Thus the cute name.  The quilt has both machine and hand quilting.  Most of the pieced blocks were paper-pieced.  The applique is needle-turned.  The quilt is 115" x 115" and looks great on Shirley's King Sized bed.
