    Sorry -- I couldn't get far enough away from it in my little courtyard to get a better picture of it.
    Stunning. Great job.

    I think some of these are this week's (or last week's) blocks. Some of them are catching up. Well, I thought I could completely catch up over summer while I'm not at work but I recently came to the realization that it's highly unlikely to happen. I'll keep plugging along as best as I can.

    E-11 Wagon Wheel (sorry the paper is on the front of the block, accidentally attached it to the wrong side). I love the way this block looks. I think I put this one together a little differently than either of the websites. I appliqued the center onto the background white, then appliqued that onto the square (green).

    Wow, Cindy! Those are wonderful! I enjoyed seeing my skills improving, too, but I must admit that there are no melons in F-6 in either of my DJ's. I kept going back and redoing them and ripping them off. I eventually forgot about them! And I'm making notes on how you constructed F-12 for my next DJ in my next life - LOL!

    Wow Cindy!!!! you've been busy ....Jane and I have just become ever so slightly reacquainted
    I had to go back to my E11 as I also do things differently, but you did come up with another way that works well by appliqueing that green print on top to reveal half melons - I did each separately. I love your points on LS2 and LS6 as well and wow on RS2 and5!!! an F12 - they are awesome!!! pat your back and smile you're creeping up on my total - actually no longer creeping as I am at a virtual standstill ...think there are still 32 - was farther ahead a few weeks earlier. Now I'm thinking of forging ahead so I can put sections together to QAYG because I am going to give a short talk about Jane at our guild show in September.
    Keep up the great stuff!

    Nice, Monica! I see your tri is not wonky like mine is. I've been meaning to ask how the other quilts are coming along. You must be getting close to your guild's show.

    Show is Sept 20-21 and I need to register the quilts for the show August 19 [yep that's next Monday...eeek] and turn them in a week before the show. My 85"x85" needs to be quilted and bound, the other two I just showed - all around town [64" square] and Inner Light [44" square] tops are completed - will make backs today, sandwich tomorrow, and then I've got some quilting to do! I have a Bernina 440QE and it has given me so very much trouble any time I go to quilt, I have quilting-phobia big time!! I know of so many who have tension issues with that machine - two years ago I had to 'unquilt' a 48x60" quilt and it was in the shop 5 times during the last 10 weeks before the show for a total of nearly 6 weeks. Since then I have found some threads work better than others. Not as bad as my friend who has an 830 [over $13K] - I call it the sewing machine version of the old Ford Pinto! ....but no one dies and the Pinto purchase wasn't as costly. Hers has even gone back to Chicago a couple of times.
    Happy sewing! keep good quilty thoughts

    Finished another block - totally out of order ladies ....sorry - M13 - wanted some evening handwork and this one can really be done in a short period of time. The one recommendation I have for keeping those points nice and sharp is to press the seams open after you trim the four corners down [after you applique the curvy parts to one end and triangle to the other of each square]

    and yes, Cindy, the fact I have another Jane block done means I am procrastinating the attack of the quilting .....ahem
    Monica

    ....I've also found that if I take a picture with my cellphone and send it to my email I cut down on the time it takes to find that do-hicky to transfer from camera to computer, dont have to remove the photo card etc - the only trade-off is that the picture is not always totally in focus.

    the background really is not pink - there's a reflection of the purplish paisley from the phone I guess.
    sew happy today - may my day have less procrastinating in it

    Monica, I hear you about procrastination. When I went back to grad school a few years ago I suddenly 'needed' to clean (in detail) and papers waited until the wee hours to be written. My bathrooms have never been so clean. Can't wait to see your finished projects and wish you the best getting them ready for the show.

    Thanks katybob I loved that 'poison' fabric too - wanted to use it in a second place after making the triangle with the leaf in it.
    And Cindy ....cleaning is next on my procrastinating list!! oh - and passing out dinner invites!

    wow!! almost a week without posts! It's been an interesting computer day...NOT! I'm thinking that "shopathome.com" place the newspaper coupon booklets have at the top where you supposedly can get more coupons for groceries etc really IS A VIRUS - dont EVER go there!!! I've been having problems since I loaded it and need to get rid of it but do not trust McAfee so am waiting for DH to take this to UCLA to their IT dept. At any rate, I've been having problems transferring my newest blocks to the DJ software in the 'my chart' that had been working so well a little over a month ago. My blocks are supposed to replace the 'empty block space holders' because you give your picture files the same names. It has simply been adding it to the master file and the end result is two files of the same name and for some reason not replacing or showing up in the chart ho..hum... possibly another shopathome/McAfee virus thing!

    At any rate - I do have one more picture and L-7 [week of June 9] really doesnt have such transparent background fabric although it seems like it.

    Monica, that stinks - more computer problems. I have a love/hate relationship with technology. Many days are heavier on the 'hate' side.

    I have not even looked at DJ since my last post. My mom was just diagnosed with breast cancer and we've been navigating our way through that. She has a good prognosis, however, and we are glad of that. So . . . she's a huge Elvis fan and I've had Elvis fabric sitting around waiting until I could get around to making her a quilt. It's taken center stage and I'm making good progress on the simple squares. I hope to have the top completed soon. I'm rushing and hope to get it together before I go back to work on Monday. In the meantime DJ is waiting patiently for my attention.

    I will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers Cindy - I know that throws you & emotions for a loop. My Mom was diagnosed back in 1990 - Dec 19 and had her surgery & came home right before Christmas. She was 76 then and lived well until 2 days before her 94th birthday. No other complications from the cancer ....or from the lupus she had from the time she was 23!

    Jane has been around for 150 years and will patiently await your return!

    Thanks, Adnil, I'm looking forward to watching your progress! Which DJ are you going to make? I've been tempted to order the blue one.

    I finished a couple more blocks today... L-6 [wk of June 16] and M-5 [wk of August 4]
    Both of the familiar blogspots - thatquilt and Auntreen have you paper-piecing L-6, I did not think that was necessary - I simply measured the book drafted pattern, added 1/2" for seams on either side and sewed carefully. Most of the strips finish 1/4" so are cut 3/4"...**know how you sew - if you commonly take more than 1/4" seam, cut the strips 1" wide and trim down. I sewed the corner 'square sections' first - actually the very first thing I did was cut a 1x4" strip of orange and white, sewed down one long seam, pressed to orange, cut into four sections and then sewed a 1" strip to one side to make the tiny 3pc squares. I took no pics - sorry in the process - but I think it is straightforward. You can follow the paper-piecing order without the paper! [or you'll be tearing out 47 pieces of it ]

    Thatquilt paper pieces M-5 as well - aunt reen and I did not. I wanted it to look like Jane so I made it like the picture and if you have the software, her center block pattern is right. The draft pattern in the book is actually variation 1 not the right one. I cut my little squares smaller than Reen - when I looked at the picture it seemed to me that the border around the four-square is slightly narrower than the little squares. I estimated that the squares finish 5/8 and the strip 1/2" so cut the squares 1 1/8" and the border strip 1" wide.

    Mine should look like this when done
    I also have bought some blue and white South African fabric to make a blue and white Baby Jane someday.
    I am thinking I should make a practice block first then I could make two at a time ... high expectations !

    Adnil, is this a picture of the original Jane Stickle quilt?? So you will try to match it closely I'm assuming? I forget [should simply go back a page] I think you indicated you are doing a BOM with a local store or online with them providing the fabric. I looked a long time for a couple of them doing the 'shopping' by myself. I found a fabric called 'crossroads to texas' for J-3 at this website... http://www.reproductionfabrics.com/shelf.php?ID=4
    the thing I liked about the fabric was that the block seemed to be a combination of a group of different fabrics - sort of a 'sampler' and that is what this fabric is. I'm also trying to find an old dress belonging to my mom for block L-10. She died 1-1-08 and had a dress out of fabric that block reminds me of and I thought it would make the quilt extra meaningful for me.

    have fun with Jane!!

    I finished M-2 today [week of Aug 18] .... I say it again...why paper piece?? For the corners cut two 2" squares out of the background and print fabrics to make 4 half-square triangles. trim down after you make & press them to 1 3/8" squares. Your border background sections are cut [4 of them] 1 3/8 x 3 1/4"
    For the center triangles cut one 3 1/2" square print diagonally twice this will ensure the straight edges are where they should be. Center square is 1 1/8", strips are 1 1/8 x 2 1/2" - sew length of this background sashing between two triangles [twice as in diagram]. Sew the short sides on either side of the two remaining sashing strips to the center square. Assemble the middle square sections as in the diagram, trim carefully to 3 1/4" square. [if you use a ruler with a diagonal mark at 45 degrees to a corner this is easily done evenly....
    With the start 0-0 marks of your ruler near a corner, set your diagonal mark so it evenly bisects the middle of a strip of sashing.. shift your ruler such that the 1 5/8" line on either side goes directly through the middle of that center square [1 5/8" x 2 = 3 1/4"] ...if you sew carefully you will not need to mess with all that paper

    My BOM is from Stitchin Heaven. At times they do a red DJ and a blue DJ. Previous picture was off there BOM website. Here is my first SAMPLE prior to the real thing. Still needs starch, press and squared up but looks ok !

    Do you guys prewashed?

    Great start, Adnil! You're on your way! I did prewash my DJ fabrics. With so many different fabrics, I didn't want to run the risk of some shrinking more than others, especially since the background and sashing fabric was muslin, which often shrinks a lot.
