    OOOO these are all so so fabulous. I love all the color choices.

    Fraew I'm with you I could make them over and over. I do wish we lived close so you could teach me EPP. I (as you know) have a hard enough time with normal PP. HAHA.

    Fraew, WOW!!! Beautiful work...so neat! and lovely colors! I can see why you have B10 as your new avatar. Very NICE!!!
    I agree with you on the idea that seeing all these pretty colors and blocks everyone else is doing makes one want to start yet another and another DJ!!!
    What is frog stitching?
    Thanks

    Everyone, your blocks look awesome! I especially like the tiny ones as I am partial to minis, but think that may even be too small to even try lol. I really should get in there and quilt, but been stuck on the couch with a stomach bug... hopefully I make myself get up soon before I fall too far behind.

    Tyme, frog stitching is when you are ripping out your stitches.... rippit, rippit lol

    Week 4:

    Circles were pieced using a curvemaster foot. My first attempt at using one of these and at doing curves.
    After doing B10, I could see why we needed to buy so much background fabric!

    Tyme, I'm loving your fabrics. I just put the curvemaster foot on my wish list -- those curves are perfect!

    I'm with Fraew - I love all the colour schemes!

    Mine is 3 different greens on a navy background in a modified "around the world"
    type setting. I love it so far, but every new one I see, I want to start another...

    I chose a rigid plan for mine, since I tend to spend more time agonizing over colours than sewing.
    Here, I just look at my "map", grab the proper green, and go to it!

    Really like bookworm's blues on white. So tempting.

    must resist

    Thanks!

    I usually use just plain old printer paper. Especially with hexagons and pieces that aren't too tiny.

    It's easier on my fingers since I do baste right through the paper. Some only baste the folds
    of fabric behind (esp those who use plastic shapes) but I like the edges to be very sharp and don't
    mind removing the basting while listening to tv (or more usually audio books).

    You have to be able to feel the edge of the shape when you fold over the fabric. This
    is easier when using card stock. With paper, it can bend a little and your shape will be too small,
    or if you don't fold right next to the edge your shape may be too big.


    I've used paper for most blocks so far. I did use card stock for the curved seams,
    to get them nice and snug.

    I will also use card stock for the sashing - since long narrow pieces tend to get "bowed"
    (yes, I probably do pull my basting stitches too tight!)


    Off to print out a new block to work on during the Superbowl

    Spartan Quilter: are you quilting all three layers, block, batting and backing? I read (somewhere) some were just quilting the block and batting, then when top is finished quilt only the sashes to the backing. I wondered why? And Katybob, I bought a 50 yard bolt of Southern Belle muslin from Joann's online (coupon of course) thinking I'd use the extra for other projects..........well I might want to wait for those other projects. Ha Ha!!! I've done several blocks twice. I love everyones different fabric.

    WOW ladies - all those blocks are wonderful!!!! bookworm - recognize some of those winter exchange DJ blocks!! Been thinking about using some of those as well [42 I think???] Spartan - about the sashing - the recommended in the original is 1/2" finished and although some people are making it wider, the real advantage to making it 1/2" when you are QAYG is that you needn't add any additional batting behind the sashing. The 1/4" seam you take from the blocks fill in the quilt sandwich - quilt top blocks, batting [and optional back at this point] - perfectly butting the blocks together to fill in the 1/2" BTW your quilting is awesome!!! adds so much to the block

    Blocks A1 & A5 (Week 3) Block B1 Not Done Yet

    Hi everyone. I just love seeing everyone's blocks! I am so glad we are doing this journey together. Linda, I will be using the method you used on Block B1 from thatQuilt. I am procrastinating though since my eye sight is failing and I will need it to do that needle turn applique! LOL

    The top two blocks are for making a DJ as close to the original as I can in a TripAroundTheWorld pattern. The second three blocks are for a second quilt where I am using fabrics from my stash to make a Chocolate Dear Jane that Sandpat made. (There are two A1 blocks for the Chocolate quilt because after fussy cutting the blue/brown stripes I decided I don't really like it well enough to feature it as the top left block. I will use it on the extra bottom row I am adding to the quilt. The extra row will make it fit my bed a bit better.)\

    Tyme, your circles look great! I have a curve master but haven't been brave enough to use it yet. Your fabulous first time curve master blocks have given me the courage to get it out. Thanks for sharing your method.

    Hope you got a laugh re: frog stitching.

    Kallie,
    Are you able to downsize your pictures in Paint? If you downsize to about 800 pixels, save on your desktop, you should be able to upload the pics to the board.

    I am quilting the block, batting and a very light weight fabric, not sure what it is, but it is cotton. I am doing this, because I back all my quilts with fleece and do NOT want to try to quilt through that and I did want to add the look of hand quilting to the blocks. Once I add my fleece, I will just do stitch in the ditch or a decorative stitch in the sashing, getting a block pattern on the fleece. I will have to play with that idea when the time comes, if I even remember it that far down the line. LOL

    Here are my week 3. A1 and A5 are PP, B1 I used the circle tutorial GV09 provided.

    I appreciate all the comments and helps during this. It's helpful to me. Maybe I'll be lucky and post week 4 before it's week 5.

    The latest. I am going to redraft A1 as suggested because I think it looks perkier. Couldn't do B2 because I need more red fabric. I will probably re-do the purple block. The pattern doesn't stand out because of all the white in the fabric. I've had to do this with more than one block, you think I'd learn. Once a block stands out in a bad way I have to re-do it; I already have a pile of outcasts.

    Love seeing all the blocks. What talented people on this board!

    jilliane, they have some wonderful tutes on You Tube. I have watched several of them and it really helped.
