Here's Week 39 -- a good week for me. Lots of paperpiecing, which I really like, and appliques that aren't so frustratingly small. I go back to F-9 every now and then and still haven't done a decent enough job on those teeny tiny melons to call it done.
Wonderful blocks katybob. I love those fabrics and the precision of your piecing is great!
Hi, I've just ordered the DJ cd and am waiting for it to arrive. I have the book and have made three blocks. I've also started a small DJ group and we meet once a month. I would love to join this forum. How do Ido this please?
You already did join us gailkv, welcome to the group :D Just post pictures of the blocks you've done, we love to see them!
Katybob, your blocks are wonderful!
Thanks Anael. Silly me. I'll post some photos tomorrow.

Thanks Dotty, I'm looking forward to my software arriving so I can really get started.

I also tried to go row-by-row although the blocks within the row may not be in order because when I asked some of the members who started their DJ with the 2010 group they indicated some dropped off because the blocks were too scattered. It seems to be working. The DJ software has a list of beginner, intermediate, and advanced blocks/triangles. I made the beginners green and advanced red on the schedule, so if you want to get a few more done initially, you can certainly start with the green ones! Just let us know if you need any tips. [re=reading what I wrote...dk if it even makes sense? I think I b tired :(
When I get more coherent I will type in the list of posts that have tips on them again gailkv
my Bernina 440 is acting badly once again....ahem .... every time I quilt with it. I feel like driving it to Bernina [because you certainly can't speak to anyone there on the phone] and throwing it through their front window.
have a great sewing day. I may get back to it although I'm leaving town for a few days. Still 4 triangles behind - actually 2 blocks and 5 triangles this week :)
My DJ software arriVed today. It took six days from the States to New Zealand. Thought that was very quick. Now I have to figure out how to use it.
How exciting! Welcome aboard. :)
