Dear Jane Christmas Signature Quilt Finished

I've finished another UFO - my Dear Jane Christmas signature quilt.  On one of the Dear Jane lists someone thought it would be fun to have a signature block swap using Christmas fabrics.  This swap took place in 2008, and since this was a "first" I signed up.  Here is my finished quilt:



It was a lot of fun arranging and rearranging the blocks.  There are blocks in this quilt from old friends that I've known for many years and new friends that I have met through blogging. 


I machine quilted this quilt on my Bernina. 


I used the striped continuous bias binding from my last post.  Here is how it looks against the red border.....



and the green.......



I love doing this leaf quilting pattern to fill in a border. 


Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

I hope you are having a good weekend and finding a few minutes to do some stitching!!!!

It is a beauty! You got fairly the same siggies. When I sewed my siggie quilt I had some problems with the different sizes, bur yours really looks good.

Whoa! This is so beautiful, special and stunning. Love every aspect and the binding just does the trick, doesn't it?! Have a delightful day and thank you for the inspiration, *karendianne.

This is one special quilt. I've hesitated to join a siggie swap, expecting problems with different sized blocks. But whatever problems you may have had, you've put them together into a lovely creation.
A bias-cut striped or plaid binding is always a wonderful way to finish a quilt.

Linda said...

Awesome!! love it.

Great quilt, LuAnn! Congratulations on a beautiful and stunning quilt! Just for fun, I looked and tried to find my siggie, but didn't see it. I was in the exchange, so I know it has to be there somewhere! lol. You've inspired me to get busy and finish mine. Thank you!
Love LOVE your border and binding!
