    Blue, your block is great! I hope that I can do half as well! I am getting so excited about starting my DJ. I have two blocks that I did several months ago, if i ever get my camera going (DH is threatening to buy a new one!) then I can post them. That is if I can figure out how to do that! LOL

    the block looks awesome!

    did you just cut the shape and needle turn or did you use a template and a gathering stitch like you did in the circle?

    Klue - I don't think it's too early to ask Admin to set up the Cyber party section so you can start segregating out the various threads...

    I'm not sure if that gathering stitch method works on a shape with straight lines, I think it's more of a curved thing.

    I used freezer paper, and put it upside down underneath, so that I could iron the seam allowance over and it would stick. Then I whipped the freezer paper out and needleturned it.

    I don't mind doing pictures (it makes me feel important! lol) if you still want to see them.

    ok, do your pics for this too.

    i plan on altering the pattern so the diamonds can be paper pieced in instead of applique. so it will be a nice compliment to each other, an applique method and a PP method.

    You all are moving too fast for me. I think I better not look again until the party begins, that way I won't feel behind before I even get started. Keep up the good work, see you in January.

    Please don't be scared off! :-)

    I was feeling like an overachiever for a while... then I thought I'd better cross the blocks I've done off on the total list, to make sure I don't repeat them by mistake. And trust me, I have not even made a dent! LOL I still have more than 200 blocks to make!

    I was thinking about one of the other ones I did, the one with the four leaf shapes running out to each corner of a plain background block. I appliqued it, because I haven't done curved seams before, but it's not quite straight so I'm thinking I might do another and do the old fashioned paper piecing, where you tack to the fabric then hand sew the seams. Like hexagons.

    Okay I'm back, this board is as addictive as the DJ itself. I'm afraid I'll miss something. Blue you're doing a fantastic job with the blocks and you've even discovered another talent, making tutorials :wink: I want to pp as much as I can but I know some of it can't. I haven't really looked at any of the blocks so each week will be an adventure and a surprise to me. I really appreciate those of you who are testing the water first so some of us can avoid the deep ends.

    hi, it's part of an old block of the month called 'Atlantis' which I think is still available in U.S.A. where the work is folded and stitched to create a 3d look. One day I'll finish the whole quilt, although I have now only got the borders to do now. Thanks for your interest.

    I already googled it. The first one was dated 2005 but I googled the artist and found one 2008. There are a total of 13 patterns/blocks. I can't go the cost at this time but of course I found something that I thought I couldn't live without, a table runner pattern.

    I love that designers stuff. I bought a table runner pattern already, just have to find the time to make it and figure out how to do those curves.

    Blue....that is a great idea about the hex type of PP...I'm sure hoping to do lots of pping for the quilt...I'm a much better sewer doing it that way :wink:

    hey guys

    i found these spreadsheets online - they seem pretty good for keeping track of whats made and how many pieces are in the quilt.

    one file is for people only making blocks and the other file is for people making an entire jane.
