dungeonquilter, i have tried many times to get to that site. it doesn't work for me either. i'm hoping that someone has a suggestion or can confirm that it is still a valid site.
If possible I would love to love to join in on the Dear Jane quilting journey. How would I go about becoming part of the group?
I just started my blocks last night and I am doing a Rainbow Jane quilt. I will have to go out of order a little bit as I do not have all my fabric yet. Below are my first two blocks A6 and A8 and I loved doing them!!
So far I am trying my skills at hand piecing and it went fairly well I think. A8 will lay down flat when I press it, I just didn't want to take another picture. I am doing stem stitch however vs running stitch as I could not get the hang of it to do small enough stitches but I am pleased with the results of the stem stitch so I think I will just continue that. Can't wait to see all the lovely blocks!
Welcome, Kallie. Of course you can join. Your blocks look great. How did you get the block border pressed/imprinted on the blocks?
Nancy.. I'm not understanding your question....and Welcome aboard Kallie - everyone is welcome to join!!!
Love the blocks [do you been the 'block size seamline?? Nancy]
On Kallie's blocks, there seems to be a fold line pressed. I'm wondering, since it is so perfect, how she did that.

welcome Kallie -- what is stem stitching??
Am unable to find the icon for posting pictures. I have resized the picture but am not successful in posting the pictures. I am a Mac user and am using a PC but I don't think that is the problem as we are on the same internet. Where is the icon. The help says at the top of the message. ???? I am replying to thread. ???
gls234, if you're using the "quick reply" message, for me the icons are right above where I'm typing, and the insert picture icon is the 4th from the end. If you went to "Go Advanced" before you started your message, there are three rows of icons and the insert picture icon is toward the end of the 2nd row, right after the "link" and "unlink" icons. It's a green and blue square that looks a little like a picture with a frame.
It just occurred to me that you may not be seeing all the icons. Go to "Settings", then "General Settings", then toward the end of the page, make sure "Enhanced Interface" is checked. Be sure to save your changes at the bottom of the page. I might be full of baloney, but I think that's how I remember it!
Thank You all so much for the welcome and the compliments on my blocks! I am loving seeing all the pretty blocks!

As for the question from Mim about stem stitching:
Stem stitching is one type of emboidery stitch. It is very easy to do! The link below is to a quick instruction on it. If the written one is hard to understand I am sure there are some good video tutorials on youtube that can show you and you can follow along with! I know it usually helps me. http://www.coatsandclark.com/Crafts/...tem+Stitch.htm
