    i'll be redrafting as many as i can to paper piecing but some of them just won't translate.

    it will be interesting at the end to figure out how many blocks i was able to alter into paper piecing.

    Slap me with a wet noodle and call me stupid.....

    I'm considering doing two. Or changing my original plan.

    I love the Dear Jane at Sea picture posted a while ago, I can see that with the blocks done in black and white, and the sashing done in black and white and either electric blue or lime green.

    Decisions decisions!

    I mentioned awhile back that I had finished A-1 and A-2. In the first picture, If this goes through, is A-1 in green batik, the second one is A-1 in civil war and the third is A-2 in cival war.
    What do you think? This is my first time trying to post a picture

    That's what I'm going to do too Luv. All I have to buy is a bolt of muslin. My DH got me the software and rulers for Christmas already. It's going to be so much fun!

    This should be DJ in green batik. I think I have decided to go with civil war fabrics

    Green Batik, if I am doing this right!

    Klue, I have to use just my stash, I am on "No Buy" till Nov. 2010 through Stashbuster. I have a lot of Batiks but in order to do DJ with just batiks, I would have to use the same batik in too many blocks.
    Maybe if I give good hints maybe my family will pitch in for Christmas. If we were already started then I could buy more but since we don't official start till January then I can't. But I can accept gifts, maybe I should give myself a gift? I don't think so! :oops:

    Hi Phyllis!

    I'm doing my Dear Jane quilt in Batiks from my stash as well. Would you like to swap fat quarters, that way we could both have a wider variety of different batiks in our quilts? PM me if you're interested :)

    Maybe someone can help/explain this software to me.....

    I have been on the fence about purchasing the eQ6 software....wouldnt it be able to do the same things as the DJ software and be more versatile? I am trying to figure out what to do.. I THINK I have heard you can scan fabrics, plan quilts and convert blocks into paper piecing....maybe I am wrong. But if you can do pretty much the same thing, why buy the DJ???

    Very nice blocks sunshine! :-)

    Margie, the DJ software has all of the dj blocks already in there, the EQ software you would have to recreate each block individually. And it would be quite time consuming.

    I have EQ6 and absolutely love it, but will be getting the DJ software as well as soon as I can afford it.

    i'm with blue on this one too. i have EQ and for $35 i don't have to draw 225 DJ blocks.

    the cost comes to 0.16 cents per block - totally worth the money to save me the time of drafting everything.

    I don't understand everything about the software yet, if I ever do, computer dummy here, but I've already printed off quite a few PP patterns. Not sure about technique on some of them but Klue is going to rework some of those for us and tell us how to do the rest. She's our leader. It will be a ton of fun and I'm ready!!!!!!!!

    Great job Phyllis, though I must say I cringed when reading you aren't buying any fabric for a year. :shock: My motto is "One can NEVER have enough fabric!" :lol: I don't think I could avoid a fabric store for a year. You are a braver person than I am!

    My very first DJ block,

    For those that have the software, I am trying to make one of the projects that they have. it is the table topper, when I saw it I immediately thought of my mom and her round kitchen table. I need 30 blocks to do it and thought this was a good way to warm up for this,

    this block immediately caught my attention as well, I don't know what it was but I just had to do it,

    The green was from stuff that was sent to me by Kwhite a bit ago, and it seemed to be prefect for this, It will match my DM kitchen as well.

    I have a tendency to work with little pieces, this was a pretty simple one in the scheme of things, I love the pinwheel to start with, just helped DH do the double pinwheel for his doll quilt. I will have to do this block again, and again and again,

    Does it look like I did some winging it on the little corner pieces? I didn't measure or anything, I just guessed where the little triangles should go and when the needle lined up with where the join was I did a little sewing, folded them out and they were in the right spot.
