    ok guys,

    we need to voice opinion on this


    "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."

    need to know, where you'd like to have this posted and does it change weekly/at the end of every "week off" period/never ending thead for 18 months.

    i'm leaning towards putting up a new DJ chit/chat at the end of every "week off" period.

    i can post pics of the fabric prize for that period and announce who won the fabric prize for the last work period.

    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.
    Too Funny. Klue you are an angel to take this on and all of the different personalities. Patience must be one of your virtues. If not, it will be by the end if the year. :lol:

    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.
    Klue you are talking about the different red fabrics not touching, right, not the indigo.

    I think a weekly chit chat would be perfect and easier to follow

    I agree.... I think we need a new one every week, otherwise it's too hard to find things.

    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.
    That sounds like a lot of hard work! LOL

    I'll have to keep mine organised for the same reason, so that the same fabrics aren't next to each other.

    I like the idea of a weekly chat because I will be trying to focus on finishing the blocks and trtying not to sit at the computer to look at everyones great work and comments :D

    Is it possible to "lock " (don't know if this is the right word) the thread so it will stay at top? this is a long project and i don't think it will drop too far on the list but it would be nice for it to be easily accesible

    You can use a bookmark for each one, that makes it easy to find. :-)

    I use them a lot, while we're in bed sleeping most of you guys are awake and chatting, so a lot happens while I'm not here. Bookmarks make it easy to find threads I was reading, and along with the "watch this thread" thing, I don't think I miss too much.

    yes, i don't want the same red "strip it" in one block to be used in the block right next to it - so its a real challenge to juggle since the design is laid out on the diagonal with red and white.

    i've set up a word document that lists each section and what blocks are in it to try and make it easier.

    i'll email it to you so you have it for your records.

    i can certainly ask admin/mod if we can do something like that.

    once we have a handle on how we'd like things to be i can open the discussion with admin/mod for their comments/desires.

    ok, these are 2 word documents that address each of the "american jane" blocks and what color to make them.

    the first one is a master list and then the second one is each section on a separate page so i can keep that page on the front of the folder.

    i've made a folder for each striped section.

    you guys are welcome to use my layout and if you want to do my colors/fabrics that ok by me.

    its not the first time its been done we did it for our guild quilt last year.

    here's a pic - i just changed the colors to red/white/indigo for mine.

    lets see if this works.

    i've wanted to see if i could upload my DJ software file onto the forum.

    if it works, any of you who have the DJ software should be able to download this file onto your computer and open it up in your DJ software.

    if it works this will make swapping patterns/designs very easy.

    cross your fingers

    ok, it loaded so the data files isn't too big for the forum.

    someone who has the DJ software down load that file and let me know if you can open it and see my american jane quilt and blocks.

    WOW! that looks so neat :D

    I was actually thinking of doing some kind of rainbow layout with my scraps and CW fabrics that I have, just wasn't sure how I wanted to do it. I was also thinking horizontal instead of diagonal? will really think about it once I get my software.
