    I took the plunge and started quilting blocks last night. I have only 1/2 of the last tri to finish sewing and 3 kites...so I felt like going ahead and starting the hand quilting would be a good idea.

    Anyway...I did buy the book so I could see quilting lines and I'm kind of going by that...with some changes of course...but basically thats the plan. I have found that I'm having to do lots of stabbing due to the bulk of seam allowances where I pp'd the blocks. I'm using a beige/brown varigated King Tut thread for the blocks. I have a darker brown one that I think I'll use for the sashing..but for now I'm using the lighter one.

    So far...last night I got 2 1/2 blocks done..but in my defense..I didn't start working on them until about 8 PM...:wink:

    Wow Patti, way to go, you will be done by the Holidays at this rate! :thumbup:

    Lesley, your quilt has been such an inspiration for this group, and helps us all push forward for the finish line. :-P

    I counted last night, and I have 34 blocks, tris, kites remaining...:D

    Oh my goodness I have friends round for the weekend and you are all chattering away and working like mad and doing wonderful things to your DJs now I feel really behind you all. However I just cannot get back to it at the moment. have promised the ladies at the sewing club to make two cushion covers for the charity quilt they have made they gave me the left over blocks so I have to do that. Then I joined in the Fan challenge at the club as well, but I can rest a bit on that as its not due till end dec. I really want to get back to my Jane.
    You are all absoultley right in the fact that you have all learned loads making this quilt, me too. Dont think I had ever heard of a "Y" seam, certainly never did it and I have been sewing for ever, only making clothes and things. Oh and in my wisdom the club had a tute on making a gorgeous handbag (purses) so I am half way through that to, total madness. loopy and insane I am. Elle

    Fibber Patti, Yes could show you but difficult here, so when I post it I will ask if anyone wants details I will PM them okay. Came out of a magazine so could be a problem, however never makes sense to me if they put it in a magazine why there would be any problem.


    tell you this Patti, you will like it a lot

    There is a lot of stabbing in hand quilting those Jane blocks.
    We missed you Elle.

    I'm plugging along Lesley! I did 15 blocks this past week, but only did 2 last night (darn that iPod!!- its a time killer):D:) Anyway...I am enjoying doing it. My stitches aren't perfect by any means though. I'm looking at the book and somewhat following what Jane did and I have to say that her stitches were by far not perfect either! The worst part is the due to pp'ing, some of these are so hard to stitch through! My hands aren't thanking me for making this decision..but they'll get over it....:lol:

    Well done Patti, keep plugging, you are doing great. Even if its only 2 or 3 a night 3 a night gives you a whole row done.

    Rome wasn't built in a day Patti - you will get there, just stay off the Ipod. Otherwise, at 3 a night, you could be looking at another two months to get the quilting done.

    My Jane is going all over the place - from my lap to the foot stool, to the end table, to the car, back to the house to the dining room, to the foot stool - get the idea.

    I have gotten a second side of triangles sewn on and the third is pinned, but I'm not in the mood to fight with her tonight. We are going to Santa Fe, so she'll go with me there,too. I can't piece in the car as it's just too bumpy and swervy. I read instead.

    I have to get up and go to another room to use the computer, so I get distracted in the traveling back & forth - oh, yeah, it's called cleaning. I see something that needs attention and I give it. Dust down here is a protective furniture coating! :oops:

    Go Patti go!

    I have been sewing like crazy, there is something about getting close that is energizing! :lol:

    To the finish, I have remaining 5 blocks, 6 tris, all 4 corners...15 total, as of this evening. I am hoping to finish the blocks this week. Of course, after all the blocks are done there is still a lot of work to assemble and finish but it feels good to be this close! :D :D :D

    Doesn't it, though? However, once I had finished assembling the center, I had a big let down feeling. I charged right ahead and got all the tris done. Now they are in rows and 2 of them are sewn to the center, one more is pinned and the 4th is folded on the end table. Four narrow borders are waiting to be sewn on, but first I need to mark the scallops on them.
