    I use Solvy Magic order it at Home Sew.com Or as I do I get the catalog and order that way.$ 7.00 for 25 sheets, I also found some leave in at www.softexpressions.com It's Ricky Tim's Stable Stuff Poly and you can leave in in cause it molds to the fabric with the quilt so it's ok as well . I believe it's 10.00 for 50 sheets, I like them both and I Hated PP'ing before I found these Papers. Hope it helps, I don't know how to post a link maybe someone else can??? Hope. ;)

    Art quilter, you can post a link just by printing it all on on its own line, starting with the http part. If you want to copy one from the top of your screen, you need to right click on it, copy it, then come in here, and paste from your edit heading. When you hit send, it magically comed up as a link.


    Re the parachute skirt fiasco, I did some digging about the artist, and posted some info on her on page 202 of my PDA. It's too long to take up the space in here, and also off topic, so please forgive me for bringing up the subject again.

    the projected time frame for the entire project (from 1st block to putting on the binding) is January 2010 to May/June 2011.

    its roughly set up with 6 weeks of sewing followed by 1 week off. the summer months and the fall/winter holiday season is when we'll be doing easy blocks/triangles and the rest of the months will be more challenging with mixed methods and difficulty levels.

    the focus of the group will be support, encouragement, and friendship. i'll be working about 2 weeks ahead of the group that way i'll be able to put up tutes for the harder blocks and provide paper piecing order for the people who only have the book.

    i'm not the best quilter around nor do i know the best method for putting together the blocks - so i hope that everyone will be willing to share their method of putting together the harder blocks so that we can all learn from the experience.

    please look over the attached documents and let me know what you think - i want everyone to feel comfortable with the project.

    For some reason my system will not allow download through site I managed to download 3 put all that showed up was a blank oage can you send downoads to my email at heryl5@yahoo,com

    Sorry Emsgranny, I know that Admin and Klue had some issues between them and Klue's posts don't seem to be on the board anymore. I didn't keep the list of things needed on my 'puter, but someone else would have, I'm sure.

    From memory, basically you need either the Book, Dear Jane, and/or the software, and the two rulers are very helpful, I wouldn't have wanted to be without them. I believe most are available on ebay, and there must be loads of other suppliers too.

    I used just less than 15 yards of background fabric, and less than one yard of each fabric in my Trip round the World design (a couple of them were only fat quarters) Others are using up all their scraps. Most of us are using the PP method, some with specially bought paper, but I only used computer printing paper. Then all the usual quilting notions I suppose, and that's about it.

    Thanks Lesley! Good information on your yardage usage. How much yardage do you think you used on your background fabric on the front of the quilt?

    Sorry, perhaps I didn't word it very well. The 15 yards were the Kona natural I used in each block/tri with my batiks, but don't forget that all my inbetween tris were made from it too. I think I have a length about 1 1/4 yards x 16in left.

    I bought 3 yards of wide (120in?) Kona natural for my backing fabric in addition to what went in the front - it's slightly different to the front Kona cotton too - feels finer. I also bought 2 yards for all the corner stones and binding, but probably have almost a yard left over, so you could definitely get away with 1 1/2 yards for that. I cut the first diagonal so that I could get proper bias binding, then cut the cornerstones from that triangle I had cut away. My binding is double, on the bias, and I cut it 1 3/4in wide. Hope that helps.

    emsgranny....I emailed you all the information ( I think)...let me know if you don't get it or have a problem with it.


    Oh and did I forget to tell ya'll that I got ALL the paper pulled off of the blocks up to the current week. Now I'm just pulling it as I go...so I'm seriously trying to decide whether to go ahead with the quilt method of Lesley's or try to figure out how to do it with a back on it. I don't think that we have enough blocks in a specific section though to get started that way. Hmmm...decisions...decisions...

    No Patti, there are not enough blocks on any of the lines cross ways or down ways. Thats why I decided to try and do Lesley´s method, a bit more sewing together, but Lesley´s turned out so beautiful its not going to be a problem I hope, as long as I am as good as she has is with the sewing

    Aaah, Elle, how kind of you. I think that was partly why I tried what I did - I was frustrated that you don't get a complete row in either direction until almost the end. At least my way, I could be quilting the blocks in the evenings as I went along, and they were almost all done by the time I finished making the blocks. As for sewing, you could machine quilt each one beforehand, instead of hand quilting. Then the only hand sewing you would have would be to tidy up the batting on the back as you join them. That doesn't have to look brilliant because it will be covered by the backing fabric right at the end.

    Thanks Lesley, I honestly haven´t looked at DJ for 2 weeks now as I have been doing my Fan quilt and an IRR that I am in.

    I will get back to it though sooner rather than later.

    Oh Elle...you just needed to catch up, then when you did...of course you deserved a "break" to work on that lovely fan quilt and of course the IRR. I'm caught back up myself, and am waiting for 2 more IRR's to come through...then I'll only have "my" projects. While I'm waiting..I'm going to stack up some more Jane blocks.

    Lesley...I was thinking that I really need to do it your way with the back all in one piece because I'm not sure I bought enough of the backing fabric otherwise. Yours did turn out lovely and I KNOW that I'm not nearly as good as you...but well...we'll see..

    Nonsense, this is only the fourth double/king bed quilt I have made Patti, I really don't have that much experience. Your blocks are coming out beautifully, so there is no reason why they won't go together beautifully.

    Thank you Lesley. Its just that I haven't been sewing all that long. Mom taught me when I was in the 3rd grade, but that lasted all of about 6 months. Then until 2006....I couldn't even thread the machine! I hemmed stuff with a stapler or duc tape :oops: :lol: :lol:

    Well Patti you really surprise me because I have the wedding quilt that you FMQ and made blocks for and it is totally amazing. All I am going to say is you learned a lot in that 6 months that came good for you.

    Patti, you are a bit behind times, I posted a thread for week 31 a week ago for the over achievers, so I've done week 32 now, I hope that's OK.
