    Thank you Tiffany! I still can't get over how pretty it is and I love that all the ladies contributed to making it happen.

    Well, I did my first triangle, and what a mission! LOL I possibly should have picked an easier one, but you live and learn. ;-)

    I made a monumental &*(^& up right at the last step, but have fudged it and it will do. For now. :-)

    The colour is a bit dark, the flash didn't go off for some reason.

    I had wanted to make up two quilts until I realized we were doing more than 1 block a week. :oops: (Teach me to read too fast & get too excited!) However, after seeing your Christmas quilt I'm thinking I could double up on the blocks I really like and make a Christmas table runner, or something similar. You have inspired me with your beautiful quilt![/quote]

    That is a good thought. As I mentioned before, I am on a "no buy" program but I would love to make a batik Jane. Since I don't have enough batiks for a complete jane, I think I have enough for a wall hanging or table runner. I have no problem picking the easier blocks for this!
    Thanks for the good idea!

    I love your block! And your colors are great! If I have time today, (and that's a big IF) I will make a trial triangle.

    Blue - that is wonderful! I had to chuckle when I read that your flash didn't go off. I rather like the dark colors. ;)

    LOL

    It's probably going to annoy me, and I'll probably redo it if I get the chance. But at this point, it's close enough, I could live with it in a quilt, especially one this busy, that little flaw isn't going to be visible from the back of a galloping horse! ;-)

    The fabric is actually a chocolate kind of colour, it comes from a coffee range that had cream and tan and red swirls and coffee beans etc. I made a table runner and coasters for a friend who means a lot to me... that's what I like about doing the scrappy version... I can look at the fabrics and remember what I made with it, and that makes me feel warm and fuzzy. :-)

    Looking at your triangle makes me feel all warm and fuzzy, because I made a wedding quilt for my sister last summer using that same range of fabrics!

    That looks awesome!! I love the colours, they're so rich.

    What will you do with the triangles you swap? How will they go together I mean.

    i think i'm going to add them with 25 christmas blocks set on point and make a throw with them.

    or i could sew them to each other to make a christmas tree skirt.

    Awesome triangles ladies! I tried that one too Blue and it gave me a run for my money!! I got it though! Love your fabrics. I was afraid to try the one you did Kelly. I'll get my courage up or wait till we do it for guidance. Probably the latter.

    RS9 is a piece of cake - it just looks tough - the PP pattern makes it super easy.

    Wow Klue, I have to say that block looks a tad intimidating to me, but I will take your word for it that it looks worse than it is. You sure did a great job on it!

    I'm thinking about trying to join in on the fun......just not sure if I can find the extra money for the software or not. I might check out the library for the book first.

    It sure sounds like it will be a lot of fun......sewing along with all of the talented ladies and gents on this quilting board.

    I worked on my DJ for two years before I used the software. Sure it is quicker with software, but I had fun copying or scanning or whatever I wanted to do
    So don't let that discourage you. Got my book off ebay. Don 't know why anyone would want to part with it.
