    So this late at night I should have kept to the simpler ones, but I didn't, the good thing is that it is done,

    A2, One-Two Buckle My Shoe for my DM table topper is done,

    Well, I have my software and my fabric. The rulers should arrive today. I'm going to use tea dyed muslin for the background and fabric from my stash for the designs. The sashing will be black. Hopefully that will make the blocks pop a little. I'm excited and nervous because I hear some of the blocks are really difficult. But I'm jumping in with both feet and see where it leads.

    So instead of doing what I am supposed to be doing, I have been playing with little pieces yet again, I will have to get back to work after this, and put these to my spare time,

    So here is the next one that I just finished, small pieces don't come close to describing what goes into this one,

    It would seem the DJ bug has bitten Cutebuns. :lol: Great job on the blocks! That last one looks like a doozy. I can't wait to get my stuff in so that I can get started with the rest of you!

    Jan, I have mostly FQ's! And I don't think that I am going to make a batik quilt. I am tempted but I have so many things going on!
    I feel dumb but I don't know what is "PM"!

    the blocks are lovely!

    sunrise450 and cutebuns!

    cutebuns - are you cropping your pictures so only the "finished" part is showing?

    I HAVE to do something! I really have too much fabric that is just sitting there. And I won't tell how many projects I have started. I am 72 and I don't think I can live long enough to use the fabric I do have not to count that when my year is over I know I will buy more! :D

    I am cropping the picture to only show what should show when it is together, my edges are pretty good though. it won't take much to have them match up with each other, only they are going into a table topper and not the quilt yet.

    So I am stuck on them, here is the next, not near as involved as the last one, there is definitely a variety in them.

    I am not sure of the applique ones or the ones that need to be paper pieced, we will see, I still have a lot that can be rotary cut.


    Thank you everyone, these are fun, though I can see myself getting carried away and the way I would like to do some of them it would be easy to do more than one at a time,

    Thank you, Kwhite found them I think at a garage sale and when I saw them jokingly I told her to send me some and so she did, I received a box full. I figured that with the size of print that they are that it would be prefect for them and I was right, the light was something that was just sitting there, I am hoping that there is enough to do the whole table topper, including the center hexagon pieces.

    I can't wait to start the DJ. All of yours are so cool!

    I have a nice long plane ride ahead of me in January. I'm going to cut out a bunch to have ready and see if I can get them through security. Anyone want to guess????

    i'm glad you're going to be joining in on the fun. don't worry about the really difficult blocks we'll all be struggling together so at least we'll have company :-D

    i hear you on that one. i love those embroidery DJ blocks. she's even started to make them in redwork.

    its a shame the collection of embroidery files are so expensive, not that her time to make them isn't worth it, its just hard to spend that amount of money.

    klue- my travel agent said no scissors, was wondering about the needles. I could always bite the thread- although I consider that a no-no. And I guess I'll have to finger press. Now I'm thinking maybe I should just forget it. But me, 4 hours in one place- not good. I can't even watch a movie without dancing in my seat. I think I have adult ADHD.

    Maybe you could take a thread cuter like knitters use. I have one that I took on a airplane trip with no problem. It hangs around your neck like a medallion. I think it is made by Clover.

    Thanks Klue, I tend to work a lot with little pieces, I did mess up one of the corners on this one and have to go back, warning, the rotary cutting directions on this one are a bit big, I will have to take a closer look at it when I go to do it for the quilt.
