Dear Jane Siggie Swap 2008, Birthdays and Hexagons

Well...I arrived home from holidays to my lovely bunch of siggies from the Dear Jane Siggie Swap 2008 ...about 125 siggies I think - last year I made a siggie swap quilt from the blocks I swapped - you can see this in my "Siggies" link.

They are beautiful - some are simply delightful, all are lovingly made and I love them all..

And last week it was my birthday - so here are some of my birthday cards from the Tas Scquilters Birthday Squishie swappers.. and beautiful blue fat quarters - two of which look very suitable to go into my Dear Jane quilt.

And this little fellow is a birthday siggie that I made for myself - I was needing to try out some glitter and fabric medium which I wanted to use on the birthday swap siggies - this is also for the Dear Jane Alternative Siggie Swap group - I can't believe I have joined up to swap 86 birthday siggies - oh well - when I get mine I can add them to my 2008 DJ siggie top.

My hexagons are growing - I have now done almost all of the white background hexagons (there are over 600 white 1 inch hexagons in this bag) - but still have about 42 blue flower blocks out of 68 to put together - most are tacked ready to construct the flower patches - then the big job of putting the quilt together - I want to finish this year as this will be a quilt for entering into a show - to showcase my machine quilting skills...

Did I say I loved quilting- LOL!
