    I was thinking along the lines of we would post them here AND on flicker. Then if we just wanted to look at all the blocks they would be in one place and we wouldn't have to go through pages and pages of posts to find what we were looking for.

    It seems like doing the Dear Jane thing is like having a baby (or a special project) - it's been done before - but when it's one's own creation it is way more special and unique than any of the others.

    Brenda Papadakis calls all the other quilts inspired by the original "Baby Janes."

    BP maybe got that part right.

    I like the idea of posting the pictures somewhere else, but with links from here, esp if they could be separated into personal albums.
    The DJ is 225 blocks/triangles, so even if only 25 people join the cyber party, if you post every block thats 5625 posts! Ouch! Plus normally at least 5 people will post a "Wow" comment, which is what, an extra 28,000 posts.
    I suspect Admin would go mad if we did that!

    What if -

    and I have no idea if this is possible -

    there was a main thread for this DJ project - and then subthreads for each individual block -

    so all the A-1s would be together, all the B-2s together, etc.

    and if comments were to be made, they could be PMd to the maker.

    But I think the last thing Admin wants to do is start another section.

    Wow Blue - that was quite a find, what a beautiful Jane quilt! Still, with the colors I chose, I am going to use a cream with gold background. :D

    I agree with you Bear, but the only problem is that this is going to be a very big deal with lots of participants. IMHO I think it makes perfect sense to start a new section so we can have subsections for the blocks - the tutes, etc. Or rather than blocks, we could have subsections for the week - "week 1" week 2" and list the blocks for each week. In that could be the tutes, questions, pics, etc.

    Klue? Patrice/SD? What do you think?

    what your suggesting is more along the line of what i planned on doing.

    each week i'll start a new post with the list of blocks to do that week along with the tutes (as needed). it might be best to post these in the tute section and its up to admin if he wants to keep them up for the long term or dump them.

    then i'll start a thread in the pic section of the fourm and we'll post pics of that weeks blocks there and we can all admire them.

    then i'll set up a flicker account for the cyber party and people can make their album in that section and up load all their pics so we have one master file of the project that stays neat and condensed.


    everyone share your thoughts

    Or each person participating could put the newest development in his/her PDA with a note on the subject line -

    but it would be nice to keep the whole thing more or less in one spot - and on this site

    yes, you should label your blocks because we really won't have a completed row to sew together until really late into the year.

    how people want to set it up might be best depending on the type of layout and design they're using.

    my quilt is laid out on the diagonal so i made a folder for the blocks that run in each diagonal because i don't want to use the same fabric in any 2 blocks that touch each other.

    Yes, I think if we have tutes, pics, pdas, then it will be too hard to find everything. Since this is such a large undertaking, and there will be a lot of discussion and the like, I think it needs its own category...I know that some do not like the "chit chat" and what the "brass tacks" so to speak. So, perhaps there can be a thread for that too, sort of the "DJ PDA" or "DJ Chit Chat/Comments". We can have the tutes, individual pics, etc. but keep them in the DEAR JANE CYBER SEW section along with the chat or whatever.

    i know people have a real sentimental attachment to their Jane quilts but its never been that way for me.

    Jane is so well known in this area, its the birth place of the "Janiacs", and you can't go to a quilt show without seeing one, a guild having a raffle with one. etc - its just not special - everyone has one.

    one of the guilds i'm in make a Jane quilt every year, so for me its like making a log cabin or a lone star (although harder) - it just another quilt pattern.

    i know you didn't and i wasn't trying to be difficult with you (i know sometimes people mistake my posts that way).

    i was just trying to explain myself but i don't think i'm very good at that.

    NYers are best understood when you can actually see them because our written word comes off with a tone thats not intended - not to mention we're great at talking with our hands.

    we're a very expressive people.

    to all,

    if you think i'm being harsh in a post or to you, please say something to me (my feelings won't be hurt - i'd be more upset if you didn't say something).

    99.99% of the time its not how i meant it to be read.

    if you say something we can clear the air in that moment and be done with it instead of people thinking something else.

    Hope that helps. Elle
    I have Windows Vista will that work??
    i'm not 100% positive but i believe Vista (insert MS) fixed Vista so that previous window based software would work on Vista.
    I have vista and the only problem are the videos from brenda can't be viewed. you can get to the but it is a pain and confusing never remember how I did it. but the software works fine with vista

    I think you are handling this very well. You have sooooo many posts and personalities to respond to. I agree sometimes we can all type something and in trying to keep the typing short it can come across as rude or curt. I also agree that if we keep communicating as you mentioned before someone gets upset that things will run very smoothly. We all need to understand how difficult it is to keep up with all of us asking something of you and how crazy that can get. Keep up the good work Klue we all appreciate you.
    Cher

    this thread is for hammering out the final details of the up coming DJ Cyber Block Party.

    there's the Block Rotation List that everyone should give "the once over" look for mistakes (we've found a few) and voice any concerns you might have over the list.

    we're also discussing the details of how to put up the posts on the forum and having a Flicker account.

    right now we're at

    1) each week i'll put up the thread for the blocks "to do" along with tutes, as needed - this will be in the tute section of the forum

    2) each week we'll have 1 thead is the pic section of the forum for everyone to post their pics of the blocks for that week.

    3) a general DJ chit/chat thread for people to talking about whatever - we haven't come up with a location for this thread yet and whether its a new thread every week or a long running thread.


    4) set up 1 Flicker account that we all have access to. we'll each create our own albums and we'll posts all the blocks pics there too. this way people can see the Cyber work as collections.

    well, you take NYer and a scientist and wrap that into one person and you end up with someone who's very direct and a little bit of a social misfit.

    thats me, everything is reduced down to a "need to know" conversation.

    but if you ever want to deconstruct or over analyze anything - i'm your girl.

    DH and i can talk for 3 hours deconstructing one song or one quilt.
