Dear Jane Siggy Swap 2007


I have finally put together my 2007 Siggy Swap blocks into a quilt. Thank you so much to everyone who swapped with me and to those who made extra siggies so I could reach my 169 block goal - especially Rosa who made so many for me and swapped husband, son and cat blocks with me.
I have tried to stick with the around the world colour way - but obviously didn't have enough of each colour for the most part and each corner is a different colour way, the centre is mostly my blocks and Rosa's blocks - then I have gone black, yellow, green, blue - then onto the corners - pinks, reds, browns and orange/purple/grays. I love it. I will be putting a muslin border on and quilting triangle patterns with my long arm - then scalloping the edges. (A sort of practise for the real Dear Jane quilt I am making).....and after all the talk on the DJ list - a black and white DJ sounds and looks great...but I had better finish the blue and white and the civil war reproduction ones I am making!!!LOL!
Thank you so much to everyone who participated in this swap - I have been pouring over the blocks with my Atlas.... they are lovely and I have really enjoyed this swap.

Hi there Jane
I see my block. The swap was good fun wasn't it? My top is half done and I plan to get it done by the end of the year. Just before sign-ups for the next one - lol ! I found your blog through the DJ list.
