    I have Windows Vista will that work??[/quote]

    I, too have the dreaded Vista :lol: and while I had several problems with hardware and software, this is not one of them. I ordered Dear Jane and worried it might not work, no problems. Hubs surprised me with EQ6 and I've had no issues with that either. They work great! :D :D

    i think its a go idea to get a jump on things if you think you might fall behind.

    the schedule is really tough during the winter/spring and won't let up until mid june.

    it wouldn't hurt to do the easier blocks in those months now that way you can just focus on the hard stuff when it comes up. i think the applique blocks are the toughest.

    once you get your groove with PP you can do just about any PP block.

    I did the same thing Luv. I really liked my 8 year old printer and did'nt want to part with it and it was screwing up. My DH went to town and came home with a new one and I have'nt had any trouble since. Except with the operator!!!!!!!!!!

    Kelly, that will be great! PP and I seem to get along ok. I think I'll be spending more time on triangles than most of the blocks.

    I too work ( I'm thinking most of us do). I'm away from home at least 50 hours a week. I didn't feel right getting started before the party started. You know that's how OKLA gots its nickname the Sooner State (it wasn't from the football team) it was from those that went ahead of the start time for the land run. That's how some Okies got prime land because they started Sooner than others, but if you're giving us the go ahead..... :shock: I more than likely will wait, but it's good to know we can start early if we need to. I'm anixous and worried at the same time that I might not be able to do some of the blocks in a timely manner, but with that week off, I think that will help alot. Klue if things get too rough I may have to borrow the money to ride a bus to NY. I don't fly, never have :lol:

    I'm waiting to start too. I have so much to get done, I don't see how I can squeeze DJ blocks in...Plus, I want to really focus on that once it starts, so that's why I'm gonna wait!!

    i'm going to transfer what ever triangles i can into PP but they aren't as flexible as the blocks are.

    thats what the week off is for - to catch up, regroup, work on other things, fix a block that you just can't stand.

    and don't worry, i fly so i'll come to you.

    i'm not starting early but i've kinda started early.

    i made a handful of blocks to make sure the fabric was working (some wasn't - had to toss them and buy more - poor me).

    now i'm redrafting some applique/tricky type blocks to be paper piecing friendly.

    then i'll start the actual block rotation in December - this way i can get the paper piecing order up for the people who only have the book and i can make the tutes for all the applique blocks.

    i'd like to maintain a 2 week head start on the group so that i have everything ready to be put on the forum in time for you guys.

    Once in a lifetime is right! lol

    I've had a practice run, and it went well I think. Not sure why this doesn't look square, it must be the camera angle. I had a wee panic after I downloaded the photo, had to rush back in my sewing room and check that it was actually square! ;-)



    Done using needleturn applique.

    I have another question, and sorry if this has been covered before....

    are we putting the blocks together in order at the end? In which case, we need to maybe label each block as it's done?
