Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass....it's about learning to dance in the rain.
I have been unable to start the DJ project, but have been following all of your progress. All of the blocks and colors are looking great. Maybe before long I will be able to start.
Linda, I was confused as to what you were referring to about original A1. I went to sewNso's close-up pictures here http://www.flickr.com/photos/6885328...in/photostream
Now I see what you mean about her block being wonky. Yours is very close to hers

Here are my blocks for Week 3, both the ones I made last summer and the current ones.
Here's my blocks for this upcoming week. HATE the A1 block, only made 4 times and my points still didn't come out but its done and I'm tired of messing with it. My circles are alittle wonky but again, after it is washed no one will know. I have found I enjoy paper piecing. I have found a technique that I like and they are fun.
Dear Jane A-1 Block Question
You are right, the block in the book is not like Jane's original block. That inner pinwheel square is NOT square. I got my colors mirrored, but I was pretty happy with how the block looks compared to Jane's original.
Never try to teach a pig to sing. It wastes your time, and annoys the pig.
A1 - English Paper Pieced - Don't know what I was thinking doing this block this way!
A5 - Paper Pieced - Last minute color change to make the block look more like the original but in 3 colors.
B1 - The buttons were basted to cardstock paper (like I use for EPP) and then appliqued with silk thread (love that stuff) to the background fabric.

I am getting confused with the talke about the signature block and this DJ quilt. Are you going to start a separate thread for those who want to do the signature block and the triangle or square thing?
