Here is our third and final "Christmas with Dear Jane" post. The quilt was made by Sue Mead, who says: "This quilt is a selection of blocks from Dear Jane, Sylvia’s Wedding Quilt and [the] Farmer’s Wife Quilt. The borders are Dear Jane blocks made by my retreat group."

The blue background with scattered pinwheels gives the appearance of the night sky, and the animal silhouettes under the tree add to the feeling of the great outdoors.

The ruffled-looking edges of the tree were made with appliqued holly leaves on a half-square triangle, accented with cheerful red hearts.
