    Thanks all, for commenting on my idea.

    I was sad to not be able to go to the smastbrook site for her wonderful progress chart. So I designed one in Excel. One can insert pictures in cells. Once inserted, one must use the handles to have the picture fit the cell [unless someone can tell me another way to do that]. I made two tabs to help those that are doing two DJ's. I'm not able to attach it here. If anyone would like a copy, please PM your email address and I will attach it to an email to you. It is Excel 2003 version.

    Storing DJ Blocks

    I try to prepare my blocks in advance so each block gets a small sandwich size plastic bag:

    - Print the pattern with the colors that I have selected (I would get into trouble if I didn't).
    - Trim it to fit into the bag and write the name on the back. I also take notes on the back = "what not to do next time".
    - If I am doing EPP, the pattern is printed on card stock. If paper foundation, regular paper.
    - I number the EPP patterns and then cut them up.
    - Select fabrics and cut accordingly.
    - Dump in the bag and the block is ready to sew.

    Blocks to sew go in my travel quilting bag (a small purse sized plastic carrier) and finished blocks go in a plastic container about 6"x 6".

    BTW - my notes include the dates that I printed and prepared the block as well as when it was completed. I don't know what I will do with all if it when I am done, just keeping track of what I can now.

    Hope this helps. F

    my goodness !! such organisation!! I have some made and am storing them in a clear 2 quart plastic container that strawberries came in from the store. It is big enough that I can also put the printed list pages in (I trimmed off the edges) Now I have to take pix and post. I am making some weeks ahead for those weeks I know I will not be available because of travel and putting the cottage in order when I get back to Maine

    Fraew, great blocks! I love the way using 3 fabrics instead of 2 in C3 makes it look like a different pattern -- I had to compare it to my C3 to make sure it was the same one. Neat!

    Fraew- im trying to figure out how to store my templates, just in case I decide to make this quilt again. Having all the prep work done would really speed up the process.

    Re signature swap- the mother list does a swap yearly and the rules are on the DearJane page. Might help to see their framework and adapt it to this lists needs. I'd be interested with enough notice to fit construction into my schedule. I will make mine into a seperate top. Since I am handquilting, I do not want lots of seams on the front and back of a DJ.

    @ katybob: Thanks. Isn't it fun making this quilt but twisting a little to make it your own?!?
    @ NDQuilts: Me too. I also write on the back of each itty bitty piece the pattern number i.e. C3, B4 and keep them with the finished block in the baggie. When the quilt goes together, the patterns will stay behind with the paper printed pattern in the baggie all in the plastic box. Does that make sense. Why would I want to make another one? It's an illness that we share I guess.
