    Hello to all!
    I continue with my regimen of four blocks for the time, but not all in one week.
    Now that I'm going to dressmaking classes, I must qualify both hobbies works! And something is lost along the way!
    I show them my new 4 blocks, it would be my 34 Week.
    Are G-13, RS-2, RS-3 and RS-4. Also a view all together, all my blocks and all my triangles!
    I hope they will be of your liking!
    Have all a beautiful week!
    A big hug!

    Really beautiful and inspiring work, Gladys. Do you have a color system like "around the world".

    Beautiful, Gladys!!

    QuiltingNinaSue, have you worked with the software lately? I played around with it for a while this morning and printed out some for paper piecing. I find it to be a difficult software to get used to.

    Thanks, Anael! I love dressmaking! In 5 months I did 2 pants, 2 shirts, 2 t-shirts and a dress on way! I am happy because finally I have clothes to my size and colors and fabrics selected by me! A big hug for you!

    CindyA, thanks for the thought. Yes, I did not think they built the CD to be 'user friendly'. I was so lost, I signed up with Quilting on the Square BOM, starting January 10th...they include excellent directions and are as close as a phone call if I get stuck on something. I am doing their "Spike Your English" 14 x 16 blocks (free patterns) right now, very pleased with Mary's design and instructions on them. Since I am starting on A 1-A 10, I am not on the same pages as the rest of you...but love how they have put the packet of instructions together and their choices of fabric. I think I can...I think I can...I think I can.

    Thanks a lot, Gus! I like RS-3 too but I can not choose a favorite yet, some designs, I like other colors combination and I think triangles that the blocks, but no decision yet in this respect are most beautiful!

    Thank you, SheriR! It resembles the "all around the world". But I had a problem, I have very little fabric (only one fat quarter of various colors) and in my country, there is now a ban on purchases abroad. So I should I use what I have. Therefore, to make it enough for all of the quilt, I use all colors, though it is not very elegant or following a color scheme. I am only following the "all around the world" in a line of the violetas-lilas - purple (my favorite color) and the central yellow. The rest goes as I think that it looks better.That was my reason of follow my own program from block to block, the color theme and I should get out of the initial programming that made Gus for all of us so kindly!
    A hug!

    Thanks, Cindya! I have the Software, I don't have the book, and slope a bit at the beginning. Over with my language drama, was torture first blocks. But then one takes the hand, and although it is not perfect, I I think that without him I would have failed it! And now with 109 blocks... is on a roll! Hahaha!A hug!

    QuiltingNinaSue Have you started any blocks yet? I have started at A1 also and have three blocks done so far. I need to post pictures soon. I just ordered more fabric looking forward to it coming. Love your blocks Gladys they are lovely. Gus that you for posting you wonderful block with the tutorial. I did A 1 the first time without looking closely at the picture of Janes block. So I redrafted it and cut out it out today. We will see how it turns out now

    Pink Lady, I will start on Monday, January 27, with A 1 and see how far I can go to A 10; I will stop when I get there until next month when the next shipment arrives from Quilting on the Square. I am attempting to do their Reproduction DJ and their Batiks...the latter is a more modern colorful version of DJ.

    Right now I am doing QOTS series of Spike your English free patterns; keep up with the ladies on the Pony Club Discussion Mystery Blocks, do the 50 Fab Stars, and an Irish Mist Kit...almost done.

    Gladys, did you not start with us on Pony Club???and I sent some fabric to you back then??? I believe your brother was in poor health when you quit that group. happy to see that you are quilting and doing a great job.

    Hello, Pink Lady! Welcome to the Group! No, I was not that person. Never belonged to any Club, just by my country customs prohibitions. It would be a dream! A big hug!

    On QB, BOM, we did the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt, then when Laura Hern came out with the second book called Farmer's Wife Pony Club, we did that one also. No Club. Just Quilting Group on QB. International group of interesting ladies to quilt with.

    Everyone have a good evening.

    Began my DJ, by starting the lessons on the DJ software. The first three blocks are pieced ones which went together ok.(pics to follow once I get a chance to take photos).
    Next two blocks are applique. I have prepared them for needle turn applique, but got wondering if anyone has attempted the applique blocks as machine applique?
    I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has done/attempted this.
    Thanks,
    GEMRM

    I'm sorry I can not help you, GEMRM. I use needle turn appliqué. I hope that someone can answer your concern! A hug!

    GEMRM, I usually do my applique by hand but I have tried machine applique and may do more of it because of the speed. Try a short and narrow blind hem stitch, keeping most of the stitches on the background piece. I've heard both: match your thread to the background, match your thread to the applique piece. Just make a few test pieces and see which you like the best. Years ago I used the clear (plastic) thread. I hated it. If I try it again I'm going to use a regular thread. Have you tried to google youtube or Missouri Star Quilts for a demo? Good luck.
