    Mine could, but he won't. I waited more than a year for hubby to put up my design wall. He had an idea but it was going to cost about $300. :shock: Um, no! About a month ago I decided I was tired of waiting and simply stapled a huge piece of felt to my wall. Viola! A design wall that works just as well as what he had planned, and much, much cheaper!!!!! 300 dollars...Shakes head & wonders what DH was thinking. Does he have any clue the amount of tools and/or fabric I could buy for that amount!?!

    I can say the same for shelving and sewing tables. I have a lot of plans and hubby is very handy, but he goes over and does all this stuff at his mother's house instead of over here. If this keeps up, I'm going to have her request a quilt room. Once he's got it perfectly set up, I'm moving in with Mom! :lol:

    Yep.... get your free insanity here! LOL

    We're all supplying our own materials, and patterns, but will be working to a schedule, so we all do the same blocks the same week. And there will be tutorials, hints, and general support online. Bring your own valium. ;-)

    Hey Klue, I was just looking at the block schedule... and so we are doing 3 (sometimes 4) blocks and 1 triangle per week? Wow! hehehehe Somehow I was imagining we were going to eek out 1 block per week. Boy was I off. I know it makes sense, now that I think about it; 200-something blocks and I don't know how many triangles getting done in a year and a half.

    General question for everyone!

    No matter what fabrics or background colors you're going to use, do you plan to re-create Jane's trip around the world color placement of the blocks?

    I love how hers looks... but I'm afraid trying to keep to her color pattern is just one more complication that I would easily mess up. LOL!! I'm doing the civil war repro fabric... so mine will either be totally random and scrappy OR I'll do her trip around the world scheme.

    What are you ladies going to do?

    I am doing mine in civil war fabric and totally random. I am buying the civil war fabric as I come across it and buying in fat quarters. I started collecting about 6 monthes ago so have a good bunch on hand.
    I have a friend that is doing her's in civil war but every block has a different fabric, and trying to match DJ's as well.

    I am still waiting on my DJ software to decide about the color of the fabric for my blocks, I will be buying FQs for that. I did order the background indigo. I am to new to quilting to have a stash so I have to buy mine as I need it :D

    I completely agree with you about trying to keep to a specific colour pattern being an extra complication! I'm doing my Baby Jane in batiks, and I'm going for a completely random colour scheme to make it easier on myself. And since we're not doing the blocks in order, that means if I run low on fabric, I can just buy a few more batik FQs to finish up - I don't have to worry about things matching!

    Also that way I get to play with different block placements and colour schemes at the end, if I want to.

    I called my local Joann Fabrics and they don't carry ANY quilting software, let alone the Jane one. :(

    So I went to joann.com and was going to use my 50% off coupon code for 1 item, and that software doesn't count, apparently, as an eligible item to get half off.

    So I guess I'm going to have to get it for $60 plus s/h, but not today. Darnit!

    I have been collecting blue and green civil war fabrics, so mine will be a scrappy mix of those colors. I am saving my pennies for the software from Joann's too. Hope it goes on sale.

    you can always just go at your pace. so maybe by the end you'll have the top finished whiles others have done the quilting and binding.

    it doesn't really matter to keep up - its just a way to have some fun and share the experience with others.

    a few do the 1-2 a week schedule but thats just too long. i have a friend that is 8 years into her jane and she still isn't anywhere near complete.

    i'm not doing the around the world placement i'm doing diagonal stripes - which i think is even harder to keep track of then around the world.

    here's a pic of what it will look like when its done

    That's exactly what I'm planning to do, as soon as I confirm that I can run the software successfully on my computer!

    Oh! I misunderstood and thought we were doing just one block a week. Okay, now this changes things and I think I'll only do one quilt instead of two. I've got too many other projects going and deadlines to meet to do 6-8 blocks a week.

    Klue, that is gorgeous!!! I love your color placement and once I get the software in I imagine I'm going to spend hours and hours playing with color design. I can't wait!

    Softexpressions has it for 44 dollars and some change (can't remember) I looked on ebay and softexpressions is cheaper than the bids on ebay at least today.

    I'm going to be using all Fossil Fern fabrics. I'm going to try to do the Trip Around the World pattern.

    Either way you do yours, I'm sure it's going to look GREAT!!!
