    Love your blocks, Cindy. I especially like the blue fabrics you've been using. I've been tempted to start the blue and cream DJ block-of-the-month offered by Stitchin' Heaven just because I love blue so much. Expensive, but I've probably spent at least that much over the years collecting fabric for my current DJ. Speaking of blocks that go together quickly, I jumped ahead yesterday and started RS-3. It's not really difficult, but very time-consuming and I just noticed I reversed my background and focal fabrics in the center and it's going to stay that way!

    Here are my blocks for the week of June 9:

I don't know why so many programs don't come with a MAC version when Macs are so popular. I am off tomorrow and was going to sew on this all day. I want to go queen sized and don't know how much to enlarge.
    You can get a program called bootcamp from Apple store. Once installed, you can then allocate a portion of your hard drive from your Mac to be PC. I have that on my laptop Mac. So all my programs that can only go on a PC are on that computer. Check out your apple store.

    I don't know what you want the finished size to be for your queen size bed? I always go to this site...
    http://www.amishcountrylanes.com/Pages/QuiltSize.shtml
    They have a great interactive calendar that allows you to add drop sizes, headboards, etc. Ex. for a queen 'coverlet' with the following specs this is what they recommend... 86" wide by 105" long -- 13" drop, 12" tuck [pillow tuck I imagine]. The original Jane finishes around 81-82" square. I would almost suggest simply increasing the sashing size somewhat. If you increase from 1/2" to 1" you would already end up with a 89" square. This way you wouldnt have to mess around with all of the measurements. You could further enlarge the quilt by enlarging the scallop width and possibly enlarging the final sashing around the central block section. Just a few suggestions. I know I wouldnt want to adjust everything!

    Dakota - those are amazing!! [lots of quilts from Netherlands ...my birthplace didnt know quilting was popular there - which reminds me - where is Anael?]
    I've got to ask you ladies - how do you get those feedback scores? suppose I could look it up - does that mean you sell on the site or do swaps?
    I've strayed from Jane once again... [feedback score = -100]
