    Lesley, thanks for the welcome and help.

    Barbarajane, congrats on all the ribbons. Would love to see a photo.

    Butterflyspain,
    I would love to get more information on quilting this as you go, if you have a source, please share.

    If I join this challenging endeavor,I'll be looking at using a machine appliqué method where you use starch and heat-resistant template, as well as glue to turn the edges under for machine appliqué. I took a class for tis technique last year, but didn't practice it much, it IS time consuming, but with my limited needle skills,I can achieve neater results with it than fusible appliqué, lol. And since this is to be done one block at a time, perhaps I'll have patience for it.

    Ok, Ill be getting the book this week and hopefully I won't loose my faith in myself doing this, lol.

    Oh my gosh, how I would love to do this because I love floral things, but it may be over my head. I'm not sure though, because I love to do machine applique. Still thinking ...

    No, don't lose faith in yourself before you have even started Candi - we will all be here to cheer you on, whicever method you choose. I made the Jane Stickle quilt last year, and when I started, I almost doubted my ability to do it, but its done and dusted now, and I am really pleased that I made it to the end.

    This one has only 36 blocks in it, and the schedule is based on making one a week, so it should be withing reach of anyone who wants to start.

    Barbara Jane, thank you, it would be nice to see those pics if you can find them.

    Barbara jane I second that, looking forward to seeing a picture.

    Candi, this was something we decided to do when doing the Dear Jane Quilt. There are several methods to choose from, the one I and quite a few others chose to do is really based on when you have made your block you then add the batting, leaving around 1/4 all round extra on the batting. Then you hand quilt it. when you get to the point of putting on your sashing you add the sashing as normal, sew all your rows of blocks together being careful to align all the blocks then you add your backing material. I will use the spray baste and pins to hold it in place, then you quilt in the ditch to hold the backing on.
    There are other ways whereby you can add the backing and then quilt and then sew each block together individually, at least that way you have the design on the back of your quilting design.

    Hopeyou understand if not perhaps I can direct you to a tuturoial.

    Lesley, thanks for the encouragement. I am always in way over my head, so I guess I'll stick to my usual and dive in. lol

    Elle,
    Thanks, very clear, I am going to look into the method where I add the backing too so that when I am done, all I need to do is just add the washing and rows together. Thanks for the idea.

    Ok, I am getting excited,can't wait to get the book and start planning this
    :P

    Poor Martina - so sorry yours hasn't arrived yet - surely it can't be much longer. Where did you order it from?
