    to get the patterns you will need either the dear jane book or the software.

    there is a scheduse on another page i will try to find it for you.

    one of the other ladies may know what page it is on if so they will tell you.

    i found the revised schedule on page 180.

    the letter A, B, C, ect indicates the row. they are lettered top to bottom. top row is A ect. the number 1,2,3 ect indicates the column from left to right. A-1 would be the first block in row A.

    the triangles are TR, top row from left to right. LS left side from top to bottom. BR same as TR left to right. RS right side top to bottom. then the kites TLC, TRC, BLC, BRC.

    hope this helps and that i cicn't confuse you.

    all the ladies on this boardare sweet, kind and very friendly and helpful. any questions just ask and someone will amswer.

    welcome to the fun.

    Hi there new2quilting and welcome to the party.

    Why donīt you start at say week 30 thru to 33(they are easier blocks) and then work your way backwards, that way you will be getting help and you can see all the help we gave each other with the various blocks, we have some ladies doing that.

    What materials are you going to use, some of us have gone scrappy, I am doing Asian fabrics and others are doing 1930īs?

    If thee is anything you donīt understand, holler :-D

    This long HOT summer has really slowed the quilters, not seeing much activity, but quilters work harder in the winter! Right?

    It's good we have an easy schedule for summer! Have you looked ahead at our fall schedule? :shock: We are going to be super busy and then wow as we come up on the holidays and after, we will be close to finished!!! I'm excited!

    Yes I have looked ahead and exciting it is as well as scarey. Have you seen some of those blocks, these are the harder ones we are getting up to.

    I'm worried about the kites already!!! I finished up week 34 today and finished weeks 33 and 36 yesterday. SO....I'm on week 37 now...yes, I know working ahead. I'm weird, I actually am inside more in the summer heat than in the winter. I have more work to do outside in the winter than in the summer....soo....its sewing while its sooo hot.

    Next week we have to start cutting hay though....so... :cry: :cry: and sweat!

    LOL I thought your last line you were going to say :mrgreen: (Grin) and bear it!!

    I grew up around haying and I lucked out because I wasn't strong enough to throw the bales but I still had to help move them to the conveyor belt. Don't envy you in that heat!! Lots of water and iced tea!!!

    You probably use the huge round bales? that is what is common here. You occasionally see square bales but not often.

    Yes Rhonda...you are right. Its the big round bales. We have some friends who come over and cut, rake and roll for us, but we get out and help them move, load, unload and stack. DH's tractor has A/C...mine does not....Unfortunately with his meds and his health, I just can't kick him out of his tractor. :hunf:

    So...depending on rain or no rain...we'll be getting started next week. We need to put up over 100 rolls.

    I donīt like the sound of that, I donīt know how the men work here on the buildings outside, it must be horrendous. I would flake out Patti, you must be one strong gal.

    Phew, Patti that sounds like a rotten job, but I suppose one that just has to be done, considering you have livestock that needs looking after.

    Well done for getting ahead with your blocks - do you want me to post various weeks so that you can put your pics there? Or do you think it will put people off?

    Oh...its not that bad...I put on a hat, sunscreen and carry frozen water bottles and keep on the move. We pick up the hay with these long spears on the front of the tractor, then move them from the field to a "pick up" spot next to the field road where they can pull a long trailer. They are then stacked on the trailer and driven about 3 miles to our other farm where we have a huge barn to store the hay. We unload the trailer with another tractor and stack each bale (roll) inside the barn...then go again. The trailer will carry about 9 rolls per trip..so we are back and forth alot.

    We haven't started yet Elle...depending on whether they forcast rain or not..we will start either this coming week or next. We don't want it to get rained on after it is cut and before it is baled. That causes mildew and the animals won't eat it..then its just a roll of money laying there going to waste.

    jolo...well, thats a good point. Maybe it will spur you on..Its not really my decision to make...we can do whatever the majority wants to...if you want to see....then we sure can post some more weeks in advance... :-D

    I have been a slacker lately and haven't worked on my blocks, but I have printed out the patterns and will be getting back at them this week. Life gets in the way, so does the weather!

    It is a wonderful challenge with so many rewards when a block is completed! I am hoping that I will get some completed tomorrow. I am way behind on posting!

    Welcombe Ozceb, how about showing us your blocks, there will e loads of encouragement as we all know what its like, it can be daunting at times, and if you get stuck just holler if we have made the blocks there is a chance we can help you.

    Hiya' Ozceb! Welcome to the party!!! Start anywhere you would like, but you could start where we are right now and sew with us, then work backwards to catch up. The blocks are pretty easy right now...so it would be a good place to start too. Most important...have fun and holler when you need to...we're usually hanging around and would love to stick our big noses in to give you a hand! :LOL:

    Just so you know there is a Schedule printed on page 180 of this thread which tells you what we are doing each week. Think if you start with the easy ones as Patti says around week 30 you will get the idea.

    Also to follow us we have posted under Jane Stickle Cyber Blocks Week 1 and separate entries up to week 32 at the moment so put a search in, all I do is put "Jane Stickle week 30" and up it pops. You get the idea? Search is at the top of the page.
