    3. we have not forbidden tutorials related to this BOM activity. we advised that detailed step-by-step tutorials be limited to those blocks which are clearly and without-a-doubt firmly planted in the public domain.

    4. we further advised that tutorials could safely focus on the techniques necessary to successfully making specific blocks if there was any doubt about whether or not the specific blocks in question were firmly in the public domain and not protected by copyrights.

    5. we have NEVER proposed closing down this BOM activity. the sole purpose of doing more research and modifying advice regarding procedures was to make sure the activity COULD, WOULD and WILL CONTINUE.

    6. the mutual support, encouragement, and education will continue. nobody is going to be left "dead in the water" with expensive supplies they can't put to good use for this BOM activity. we can still ask and answer each other's questions.

    7. if you plan to privately exchange any information or resource materials we have recommended not be exchanged publicly kindly do not discuss that intention publicly. when you discuss such intentions here, it drags the board into those plans. we are not the arbiters of your conscience. we are here to ensure the board can continue to operate to the greatest mutual benefit while observing legal and ethical requirements as we understand them.

    7. Admin is still doing more in-depth research so we can make sure the procedures grant the widest possible freedom to exchange useful information while also protecting all of us from accidental violation of copyrights, etc.

    8. we don't have a lawyer on retainer. we will occassionally make mistakes. guess what. as we figure that out, we'll fix them.

    9. please don't make mountains out of molehills. keep working on your blocks. keep posting your pictures. keep helping each other. keep the fun going.

    10. there is no cause for alarm. there has never been any cause for alarm. it's all going to be just fine.
    Thank you Patrice.

    Ages ago I bought a couple of tube rolls of batiks... I picked a size of hexagon so I could get 4 out of one square of batik. And in each tube there's 80 squares of 40 different shades. All up I think I have 6 or 7 tubes. That adds up to a LOT of hexagons. LOL

    What I'm doing is just putting the shades together, so the colour will shift randomly across the quilt.... the reds will fade into purples and blues, across into greens and yellows.... it will be random but with a bit of a plan. If that makes sense!


    :-)
    Oh wow Blue this is gorgeous!

I want so much to make a DJ and realize that without having a group of friends, chances are it will never happen.

    It will take me a few weeks to get my stuff together and get caught up, but hopefully I can get there before Valentine's day!
    Yeah Ginabelle! Another Dear Jane quilting friend.........or are we calling it Damn Jane? LOL Can't wait to see your fabric choices. It is very addicting. I'm doing a red, white and blue but after seeing everyones fabric choices, there are many more I want to make now too. Hugs, Sheree

    Maybe you should pack a lunch as agonizing over which way to go with fabrics can be a lengthy thing, At least it has been for me., :

    [quote=PatriceJ]if you're making small blocks ... say ... 6" finished or less ... you should consider trimming your seam allowances to less than 1/4".

    if you do foundation piecing or plan to echo quilt close to both sides of the seams, a 1/8" allowance should remain sturdy throughout the years. otherwise, i'd recommend 3/16" or thereabouts.

    the narrower allowances will leave more "quiltable" surface.[/quot]
    I agree with Patrice in going 1/8 seam allowance.Next I have to decide if taking the paper off once the sections are domplete to put together would sits better eithout all the bulk of the paper. and no matter how perfect I pin where things have to line up, the bulk often has a tendancy to get thrown off kilter. Maybe less bulk from pasper would be work a try!

There are a few long-armers in my area, though, so that's an option for me too. I'll have to look into it further.

    It will cost more money but you can have it stitched in the ditch which I think will accentuate the blocks, but I'm sure at a heaftier price than an allover design. My longarmer friend that does my quilts said she will not quit the Damn Jane. I have to find out if she was seriois or kidding! LOL

    Just getting back after a two week vacation I am finally caught up with all these pages of communication. It seems we have gone through a very tense and upsetting time here with this project.
    My gut feeling is that all will be well. We are a group of wonderful woman building friendships from all over the world while helping each other create this fabulous quilt that we may or may not be able to accomplish on our own.
    I think the bottom line here is that our motives behind what we are doing are good and pure in helping each other along this creative path.
    Klue is a leader that is extremely gifted, and generous of her time in trying to make this the best experience it can be for us. There is no doubt in my mind that Klue will regroup, come back strong and with the help of those closest to her and similiarly gifted we will be back on track in no time. Just my thoughts.

    Hi all,
    End of summer holidays for me, back to school, so I'm a bit behind. I've back-read all the pages, but am not sure. Are there to be no more tutorials? What a pity. Are people still powering along, up to date?
    By the way, happy Australia Day for Jan. 26th!

    Sheree, it's lovely to hear your upbeat attitude about the group, I think we will keep on going as well, but don't understand why such an innocent pastime should be caught up with copyrights etc. Modern Life eh! Talking of blunders, I wondered what the mark on my block was and found that i have ironed not pressed it, and dragged a pin all through the non-stick coating - well it didn't stick on the plate long did it?!? LOL?

    hey, ladies...can anyone recall where that spreadsheet for around the world is on this thread...or was it one of the weekly threads. This was quite recently, and then the lady that posted it said it was labeled wrong, and would get back with the updated, corrected version. I have looked and looked. Help. It looked like a great planning sheet for some upfront planning of colors.

    Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions, via either PM or email. Blue Chickens don't have teeth, so I won't bite, honest. ;-)

    Attention to all the Cyber Block Party Participants:

    The show is still on...we are still doing the Cyber Party. I know there have been some questions going around and curiousity. If you want to know if KLue is still participating...which seems to be the question I am asked most often, I would URGE you to contact her directly with a PM.

    As for me, well, I'm going to attempt to lead us in the remainder of this project that was started. I can't see abandoning all this hard work on our Board, so I URGE each of you to contribute as much as you can. We are going to continue with the weekly photos and will just have to have tutes that deal with special issues around the block creations. I think by now, there is very little that each of you need that much help on! If you have a question about a pattern, how to put it together, etc., I am happy to respond on the forum or by pm, or by email. If you don't have my email address, please PM me and I'll send it to you. I have no intention of doing anything to violate the existing copyrights and trademarks by the author of the Dear Jane book. We can do this project without doing that!!

    So, any questions for me? Send me a pm
    Any questionss for the group? Post 'em.

    Stitchfully yours,
    Esq

    I'm just getting started with mine....this thread and the others are what first introduced me to Jane Stickle's quilt, and are responsible for me wanting to make a semi-reproduction of it.

    I can't believe that anyone who truly loves that quilt would prohibit anyone from helping others to make it!

    I haven't let it stop me, but I refer to it now as my Jane Stickle quilt, which as far as I am concerned, it is. I've got a fair way along the way, so I too am willing to help with questions if anyone has a problem.
