The Advent of Christmas Day 7: Christmas with Dear Jane

As our celebration of Christmas continues, here is another sparkling quilt! The Dear Jane® blocks alternate with hourglass blocks made of paisley and ivory prints, creating a jewel-like setting.

There are 39 different Dear Jane® blocks in this lap-size quilt.  Christine Taylor says, "This quilt is made from blocks I received in an exchange of Christmas themed 'Dear Jane' blocks.  I love them all."

Since the paisley print has all the colors of the quilt, it unifies the composition.  We enjoyed seeing the Christmas-themed fabrics which were used for the blocks, including the candy cane stripes shown above.  You can also see the pretty quilting by Suzi Dillinger in the photo below.
