    Yep, thats my little one. My husband and I are in the military so it makes it easier to understand and cope with time away from one another since we are in the same boat. We should be planted here for a few more years at minimum.

    So great to see all of the DJers start up again! Iv'e got to say that doing the DJ quilt was one of the most rewarding things I've ever done in quilting. You learn every technige there is and before you finish, you are an expert at each one. I found the schedule from the first time worked perfectly. I accually finished in 19 months, a little behind schedule, but done! I chose to stay as close to Jane's colors as possible. It was amazing to me how all of us had such different colors and fabrics and they all turned out so beautiful. You couldn't possibly select a wrong color way on this project. Jane used so many different ones and she was very limited on choice. I wish you all good luck and great fun!

    Your DJ is gorgeous Janstar! I only did a little over 30 blocks and I did learn a lot already! Did you quilt it yourself?
    A balanced quilter is one with a project on each finger
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat


    Nobody is completely useless, you can always serve as a bad example

    I would love to join in, I was hoping someone would start another DJ.
    Three a week sounds good, it would be easy to catch up if I get behind.

    Brandy - Welcome!! You are number 60!! can't believe the number who have signed up - WOW

    Janstar - Thanks for the inspiration - your quilt is beautiful.

    You said the schedule order worked for you?? When I checked it out I had marked all beginner and advanced blocks on a diagram and thought it to be a difficult schedule. klue had only 1 beginner block the first 4 weeks - in fact she had an advanced block the first week too and 5 advanced blocks & triangles in the same week just three months into it. I consider myself an advanced quilter - you must be also?? There is no way I would expect a mix of quilter levels to attempt that schedule.

    Question for those of you who have a good start into DJ and those visitors who I know have completed them - I have worked out a TENTATIVE schedule for the first 3 months - can you please look over this and give me some feedback? Also I will look for some tutes [thatquilt.blogspot.com has some excellent 'copyright-free' directions for each block and a few tutorials]
    this is what I'm thinking....
    Week 1: A6 A8 B4
    2: C1 B13 C3
    3: A1 A5 B1 HST & FG tutes here[half-square triangles, flying geese]
    4: B2 B3 B10
    5: B12 A3 BR1 -triangle
    6: TR1 TR2 catch up
    7: A7 A9 A11
    8: A2 A4 B11
    9: A10 C12 B9
    10: B8 B7 A13
    11: A12 B5 B6
    12: BR4 RS1
    13: C9 C6 D3
