Siggies and friends around the world

About 18 months ago I joined Annelies International Siggie list - a follow-on from swapping siggies (signature blocks) based on the Dear Jane block, D-13. There is an annual Dear Jane Siggie swap also. It's been a wonderful way to get signature blocks and met some wonderful people.

This is a photo of the siggie I was sending out to those on the international list. I had to buy another lot of "wattle" fabric as I eventually ran out of the fabric shown in the photo.

This is how the quilt top looks so far, with all the blocks I received in 2007. Those I received in 2008 are still sitting in there special bundles and bags along with Birthday Siggies I received last year.

One of those people I got a siggie and letter from was Micki. She is having a giveaway on her blog. She is a very "crafty and productive" lady!!


  1. Looks nice! I love the way you arranged the colors.

  2. Susan, that is just lovely! I am beginning to be fascinated myself with these 'siggies'. I know of Carrie from who is collecting them as well. You might want to check out her site!

  3. I love how you made that quilt - how many blocks did you have to make to trade?

  4. That quilt is wonderful & precious. TTFN ~ Marydon

  5. Thanks for posting about the giveaway, and I love the is gorgeous!

  6. I just joined Annelies' siggie swap about two months ago, Susan. I wish I had known and I would have enclosed one of mine in the envelope I posted to you yesterday.

    Your siggie quilt is gorgeous! I have a very long way to go.

  7. Dear Susan,
    How lovely to see that you too are a part of this magic blogland:) Yep, I received your siggie as shown above, and the worst is that my siggy quilt is still under construction, not yet arranged to form a design. Have many ideas flying on my head but later on I will decide up.
    Yours is more than saying fabulous!
    Have a creative day & warm greetings from Istanbul to you~
