    Kelly - thank you so much for putting this together! I'm going to print out the lists and study them hard! I think I have a good start on things, but we'll see.

    I plan to use all modern prints for my colors, although I will say my off-white I've chosen is a bit old-school. Still pretty though.

    Let the games begin! and KLue - you are amazing! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! :!:

    If we are not sure if we're adding the triangles to our quilt, can we do those in the end? I have a 2.5 inch acrylic but I'm thinking that the larger triangle ruler will be a must. I'm doing a scrappy 30s (eventually :lol: ).

    Wouldn't you know I am new to EQ and have misplaced my software book! I'm tearing the house apart looking for it.

    I would love to join in, just don't know if I have the focus to last that long in doing it.

    At the moment I can't afford any of the supplies either, The fabric I could probably use what I have, but no rulers or software or pattern.

    I'm excited.

    Thanks Klue for organizing this. You have done a wonderful job.

    Elle the Asian fabrics sound great.

    I have been buying fabric here and there. It's now time to take an inventory. :-)

    ai731 aka Jan: I am also using batiks. I just love them. I have a neutral batik for the background.

    I am going to do the blocks in around the world color placement. I may change the size of my blocks to make a queen size quilt. The software is great for this.

    you can make the quilt without the triangles - its your quilt so you can make it any way you like - every one is welcome to join regardless of the way they wish to make their Jane.

    i'm not a jane purist so you'll see through out the year that i'll redraft blocks to make them more user friendly - i have no problem adding or removing seams to make the blocks/triangles easier.

    i think the triangle ruler is good to have but the little square ruler isn't necessary.

    you might be able to make the triangle ruler yourself if your handy and have template material.

    the only things that are a "must" is fabric (which you have) and either the book or the software.

    you could check and see if your library has the book or you can put up a post on this forum looking to make a trade for the book/software or maybe someone has the book and will let you borrow it.

    i don't have the book, i just check it out of our library when i want to look at it otherwise i would let you borrow it.

    i love that about the software too - you can scale up or down with a click of the mouse.

    the quilt would be beautiful on a bed.

    oooh I do, Klue. You're so good. I'll have to take a close look at one because the online DJ triangle rulers look pretty complicated. I've really not even checked out the actual triangles because I wasn't going to do them or do larger solid triangles of print fabric every other one and the kites....but then I saw one that had white on white triangles and I thought hmmm that would work. Thank you so much for setting this sew along up for us!!!
    :D

    I am not near a library, and I hope to be moving next summer (but who knows) Maybe if I try it I will get it going and done faster. if I have the right information I might be able to swing the blocks faster than that and have it done.

    We will have to see what the new year brings, I know a few that are going to try,

    I think a squaring up ruler/square is very helpful - for whatever size square that one chooses to make.

    It has taken me a bit to get used to the markings on the 5 inch dear jane ruler.

    Elle, the Asian fabs sound very interesting and I'm sure will look wonderful! What background will you be using?

    Yikes!!! We start triangles the 1st week!! :shock: :shock: I ummm, better get busy learning how to do them! :lol:
    Havenīt got a clue what the background will be I thought white as I can match that up easily as I go along and I donīt have to spend loads all at once. I am going through my asian fabrics petting them at the moment.

    Thanks, klue. I figured I was too low on cost. Still not sure if I will join this one or not. I will be lurking either way. So much fun to see you all getting so excited and planning.

    Just letting you know that I will definately be joining this.
    I did have some doubts until I tried one of the blocks.
    I tried out the M8 as to me it looked the most difficult of the 3 first block Klue starts out with. I thought I was going to have loads of problems but it turned out really good. It also gave me an idea of what the Asian fabrics were going to look like and I put them with a white background which worked really well.

    I would love to see your block Elle. I did an A1 just to see and it turned out backwards for some reason and I'm sure that reason was me! I'll post if you like, althought it's way down the list.

    Elle, good for you jumping right in. :thumbup: Like the background, too.

    Someone who'd done several said I absolutely HAD to use muslin or at the very least cream. So glad to see there are others using white, not that I ever make layout decisions by quilt police coercion :lol:

    Retro-Who ever told you that you had to use muslin or cream must not have looked at the many DJ quilts posted on the web from all over. There are many, many beautiful DJ quilts out there and the backgrounds are as different as the quilters. Do what you love, forget someone else's rules!

    I think the only important consideration is the contrast between your fabrics so that all of the little pieces don't get lost in a mush of color.

    Thanks, I need to go back to the machine and make another triangle cos thats way squiffy. However it was a learning process and I have to jump in, just to see if I could really do them. The PP patterns on the Dear Jane Software are fantastic.

    A really big thank you for this organising. I once started my Dj en made a few blocks but what I started I want to finish so thats why I'm in.

    I do have the DJ book and the software, but I prefer to work with the book.

    Enniehow, It's really great that you do this! :D
