    This is one thing about the blocks that I'm really not worried about. I am currently hand piecing my 2nd Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt. Let me tell ya, by the time you've pieced a few thousand hexagons, Y seams are no problem :-)
    I don't even know what a Y seam is! Should I be scared? I am. LOL

What I liked about the bunnies and the dragonflies was the small amount of red in them. I don't know if it's too out of what you want, or if it's too orangy...but if they don't work, they can sit in your stash for just the right project. I figured that has to be a block having to do with rabbits, bunnies or something...
    What a thoughtful person you are!

    I'm using civil war fabrics too, but keep seeing so many other beautiful combinations, I want to change my mind! I love a green/purple combination, but would have to buy so much fabric!

    I've just posted a tute on inset seams, because there are a couple coming up in the triangle LS 10.

    Klue, if there is room, please could you include which week number the thread pics are? Each time you have a new post, I have to go to my list to find the week you are referring to.

    I am racing away at the moment because I am enjoying doing these little blocks far more than I thought I would. I know that Cutie did a tute on Y seams, and if people haven't ever done one, I suggest they try triangle TR 9, before they tackle RS 6, even though it comes a week later.

    I am also having the same problem I wanted to do civil war but only have some so I decided to use them for the triangles and kites and go scrappy with the rest but use one color for background. I haven't started yet and seeing all these beautiful blocks is making me rethink everytime :shock: :shock:

    but don't have the funds to start all new :-( so I better just stick with what I got and get going!!!

    thanks for posting the tutes.

    I've done y-seams, and it's my opinion if you leave a little hole at the "y" it's not too big a deal. You can go behind and tack it down, or you can always quilt over it!

    Cutie, I reviewd the tute,and am wondering exactly how you positioned the white over the colored...did you by any chance take a photo of it right before you laid it on top that you can post?

    blue, there's a play on the storm at sea with just one large block it looks awesome.
    Wow! Those are great! Gives me some ideas on the sashing, especially the corner stones. It is also interesting that not everyone makes every one of the 225 blocks and some of the borders are different. Gives me hope! I think I am going to play around with some of these ideas.

    esq.... awesome fabrics, you're a darling! I love the bunnies, they're just too cute!

    sonwest.... Absolutely! lol The "mainland" is what we call our South Island, I was born there and although I now live in the North Island (and have done for MANY years) I still consider myself a Mainlander at heart. :-)

    Klue... I really like that setting, it just goes to show even one single block can be amazing. I feel like my head is going to explode with all these ideas. I really like the ones set on point too, if I do end up doing a few of a different colourway I might look at setting them on point.

    Lacelady... the tute is awesome, thank you. :-) As for racing away, these little blocks are sooooo addictive aren't they!!

    well then this is going to burst your brain.

    these are the jane blocks (and others) done in diamonds instead of squares (like squares are so easy).

    It's amazing to me that, at least in my brief read of the links, that she does not credit Jane Stickle, or mention the origin of her blocks??? Is she scared of Brenda's reaction? It's not like Brenda owns the squares...

    this is from the website

    "Come take a private lesson with me, and discover the advantages of hand piecing with freezer paper templates. My Quilted Diamonds books were inspired by the Jane Stickle Quilt (1863), which is the subject of the book Dear JaneTM by Brenda Papadakis, and by the Jane Austen Quilt (1812). See Jane Austen's Writing Table Quilts DVD too."

    brenda is a bear about the entire thing though.

    she owns the trademark on Dear Jane, Baby Jane, and Dear Hannah and if you use those words without her consent she will shut you down.

    i believe "that quilt" blog used to have a much different name until brenda shut her down.

    you are right, "that quilt" is named just that because they used Dear Jane as their title and Brenda made them change it. Somewhere on their site (That Quilt) the name change is explained.
    Brenda caused a stink and they got shut down and just changed their name.
    Personaly I think "That Quilt" is a great name and certainly says it all.

    That quilt is on the list of Janiacs or Dear Jane
    Blogs from Brenda's link page, so it sounds like all is on the mend now.

    Inklingo can be addictive also & Brenda has allowed information on the Dear Jane list serve about it. There are free downloads on it to try her method but I had a bear of a time getting my printer to allow the freezer paper through it. I think if I did it again, I'd tape the freezer paper to a regular piece of printer paper for ease. If we have any blocks that cannot be paper pieced without too much trouble, I might use the technique for templates.

    of course that quilt would make nice with brenda she wants the dear jane business - aside from the fact that she never would have won the lawsuit.

    Personally, I adore thatquilt and think it's one of the best blogs for Jane I've seen...as soon as I saw it I had to check back over and over to see her progress and you KNOW I love her fabric choices!! =)
    IMHO if I simply re-drafted/copied another quilter's work, I don't think I'd have the nerve to give people a hard time as they help others through the process, but that's just me.

    The easiest way I've found to print my templates onto freezer paper is to lightly iron the freezer paper to a piece of printer paper, trim it so it's the same size and then just feed it through. After I've finished printing it just peels off and is ready to be pressed onto fabric.
