    Ok, you guys talked me into posting. I'm very disorganized and don't even have these labeled as to which blocks they are. I just forgot to do that.

    I'm trying my hand at quilt as you go. Not sure I'm going to like it, but I think I'll persevere. If anyone else has started that please post pics for us to see. I did this part last night while watching Downton Abbey, not sure how long I worked (not long) on it before I put it down. It will give me some hand work. But I it's not going to be fast, that's for sure. I've only done one other QAYG project, and that did not stay together very well despite 1/4" echo quilting which I thought should be more than sufficient.

    Monica, hope you are doing better by now. I have arthritis in my thoracic area so kinda know what you are going thru! Anyway, great blocks CindyA (love that orange fabric!) and everyone. Fromzstore to your finished quilt, way to go!! I can't imagine quilting that on my DM but maybe hand quilting will be my way. I have 2 more blocks done but I'm just beginning. Maybe post them tomorrow, BB games today.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    Breath taking. Wonderful job. Just wondering did you keep a piece count?

    Cindy - great blocks! thanks for posting again

    I thought I would post another block [since the neurontin seems to be taking care of the pain!!!] I actually even have a little tutorial for those who may now... or eventually want some help on block M-1. If you look at M-1 you will notice that the white triangle points in the sketch don't exactly match up to the white squares. I reworked it just a little and my triangles did line up [almost] with the squares. I thought erring on the outside like a cap was preferred for me. First I measured everything in the sketch .... the inner squares finish 5/8" so need to be cut 1 1/8" - I cut a couple of long strips - 4 white squares requires at least 4 1/2" [cut it 5+] and cut the green/print 1 1/2" longer x 1 1/8" wide. Sew strips together. Then cut four sections 1 1/8" wideName:  djm1a.jpg

    Next, to make the corner triangles, cut two 1 3/8" squares diagonally once to make four triangles. I decided to cut a very long 1 1/2" strip of green to sew to the straight sides of each white triangle [make sure you allow a little more than 1" beyond the diagonal side of the triangle to make sure you can continue the angle all the way to the other edge.]Name:  djm1d.jpg

Size:  47.7 KBTrim the resulting 'setting triangle' down by lining up the 7/8" grid marks on you ruler to the sides of the white triangle.

    line up the center of the triangles with the center of the squares and attach you 'setting triangles' to each side of the 9-patch.Name:  djm1h.jpg

    Now you have the center complete, trim it down to 3 1/4".
    Name:  djm1k.jpg
Views: 65
Size:  44.4 KB I have not shown pictures of the finishing because it is a simple log cabin type completion. Cut long 1" white/background strips and add strips around the sides of the square, "squaring up" after each addition. For you final border, cut 1 1/4" green strip and attach the same way. Trim to 5"

    I them apologize that I am not doing the Dear Jean blocks!
    But Monday was my birthday and I was putting together my first dress. I am very happy with it and increasingly happy to making my own clothes!
    I am also learning a quilting machine, with a weekly block, you can be seen in my publications here at QB.
    That all reduced my time, but I hope next week have any block made and share it with this beautiful group!
    Have all a beautiful weekend!

    They have taught me that this beautiful hobby knows no borders nor language!
    And I always dream someday know some! And give her some of my big hugs! Why not? Life can always surprise us!
    My newly-minted 49 years I know that every day the sun rises with new energies!

    Happy Birthday Gladys! You are such a ray of sunshine on this quilt board. You're dress is wonderful!


    Gus, your tut is so good. I need to go through and write all the posts of all your tutorials. I really WILL finish mine. I have G6 on my machine ready to go now!

    I'm starting to buckle down here and get the new thread started within the next few days.... I was aiming for Feb 1st!! Ah well, so I'm month late - send out the quilting posse!!!

    Thanks for the tute compliments - my plan is this - I'm starting to send out PMs tonight and will actually hold off sending them to those of you who have been checking in on a regular basis. There were over 120 names on the original interest list. I would love to be able to reach them all! According to Patrice I will be limited to sending PMs to about 5-6 at a time and if I send subsequent ones too close, they will be pulled. This is apparently the way the system works to prevent abuse or hacking or online abuse.... I guess the quilting posse does exist!!!

    The name of the new thread will be "Journeys with Dear Jane: Baby Janes in the making and complete"

    I will post the schedule we began with but encourage anyone wanting to to please jump in regardless of how much or little they have done. Hopefully we will see some completed Baby Janes. There will also be a parallel thread linked somehow that only I will be able to post to. The only thing found here will be tutes, helpful hints and links. This way we won't have dozens of compliments and comments on lots of pages and those who want to get right down to brass tacks and don't have time to look at everything [what a shame!!] can just go to those pages. All of the tutes in this thread will either be repeated in their entirety if that is feasible, or will be linked or referenced.

    Patrice will shut down this thread at that time and link to the new thread.

    See you there soon!!
    Gus

    Happy Birthday Gladys! Beautiful you in a beautiful dress!
    Gus: I've been following this thread closely though not always posting. So I'm one you won't have to email. I've been watching for the new thread so I'm up to speed on your plan. I've been dabbling a bit in my Jane but will be picking it up more with photos to follow. Thanks so much for keeping this "alive" as well as all the other posters!
    Continued fun times ahead!

    I'm posting here so maybe I'll get notice of the new thread. Gladys, your dress is lovely, I love blues and blue floral!! Gus, love your blocks. I have 4 done, I'm the slowest one in the world but life keeps interfering. I'm now doing kids quilts for a family that had a fire. Those have to come first! Than preparing some hexies for working on at the Big 10 championship Womens BB finals. Happy sewing everyone.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    Hi everyone -- I hope your feeling better Gus - I have also had some horrid back problems and had a procedure on the 1st Feb. It is a lot better - still not right - but hopefully getting there. Your quilt is lovely Fromzstore and Happy Birthday Gladys - love your dress. I am still joining my tri's - having unpicked some of them (more than once !!!) Look forward to carrying on with the new thread Gus !
    Getting ready for our youngest DD's baby shower tomorrow - our Grandson is due towards the end of this month !!!

    Monica, that sounds like a great idea. I hope you will be able to move or copy the tutorials from this thread that you've taken all the time to make over the last couple of years. That will be a great way to be able to get right to them.

    Gladys, Happy Birthday!! Pretty dress.

    Thanks for the "headsup" on the new DJ thread. I have made 1 - yes only A-1 by hand. I am so looking forward to all the tips/techniques so I can move this project on down the line.
