I will have to figure out how to add week#s - but you get the gist... by end of December or earlier I will post it as an attachment mark which ones are beginners and advanced.
For those of you who are deterred by the thought of triangles = I have been assured they are not as hard as they seem - and I definitely have chosen to do the easier ones first. We have to start by doing some of them during the first few months, otherwise we will have 52 to do at the end. I've tried to adjust past schedules to include the suggestions made by other DJ quilters - to be able to "see" some progress by sewing rows together and by spreading the difficulty - with a concentration of beginners at the beginning - saving some til the end and concentrating the advanced somewhat spread throughout the middle-end of journey.
Hope this works!! Any other suggestions - pass em on to me and I'll try my best...
I did some triangles and they indeed aren't as hard as they seem. Of course I didn't do the hard ones! I made one corner kite too. Having the software really helps, as do the tuts on 'thatquilt'.
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
No need to apologize, Luv you are a wealth of info and I'm counting on you to help keep this together!!
I just realized what was happening - if someone has the 10 posts per page option, you could probably just double the page# to get it on your screen?? I think it should work
To post a picture or attachment, you need to go into quick reply & enter your post, then click on "go advanced" instead of post quick reply to the below right. A new section will open up and allow you to browse your computer files to add attachments - pictures and text files
just remember to post it when you are finished adding attachments. When you click on the [dont remember if it says post reply or add.... below the attachment you have added, the original message you typed in your reply box will automatically appear as well
Do we have to purchase Brenda's book?
You need to have in your possession either the book or the software. If you have a friend who wants to share her copy - that's fine. We will not be printing exact patterns because we observe copyright regulations.
I think at the moment amazon.com has the best price for the book, but soft expressions has best price for rulers if you want those as well.
I would love to join. I have the book and rulers and have made about 25 squares in about 4 yrs. I am very slow and take out more than I put in. Probably can't keep up, but maybe will keep the incentive to continue and finish one day. I am using civil war repo. I love them so much. I have been lurking for several yrs. Just have never gotten up the nerve to join, so I decided I would tonight.
Welcome aboard cattlady!!
I will attach a full schedule sometime in December and will begin January 15th. If you go to post #282 you will see the schedule for the first 6+ months[you find the number of the post on the top rt just above the post].
