    I too am doing trip around the world but with any fabric that is the right color. Hope I get the right amount of lights and dark fabrics so that is is pleasing. But, too much fabric around this house. Let's use it up.

    I have the DJ software and when I printed out the triangle for this week, it printed 4.5 x 4.5. What do I have to do to change the size for printing?

    Gls - when printing, there is a box to check labled "size from quilt"

    tyme - yes it is Glad press and seal. I place it on my pattern and trace the block. The cut it apart with a craft knife and use it like I would freezer paper. It is clear so sometimes hard to see, but when I am doing curves, it is flexiable enough to stay on the fabric while I manipulate it. I probably get a better result with freezer paper and tracing the sewing lines, but when I have the kids around and want to do a block, I pull out this product. No iron necessary. I have also used it for Hand quilting templates. Cut my shape, press it to the quilt, and stitch next to the edge.

    I've had Press and Seal stretch when cutting it apart, so use caution. Some scissors do not like it, so I used a ruler and craft knife. Might even try pressing it to scratch paper and cutting it while affixed.

    Unfortunately, the software has the option "size from quilt" but it is "grayed" out. I must be doing something wrong. Having measured the triangle in the book, it measures 5 x 8 inches. I can insert the numbers but not the default.

    you have to be printing from the quilt, not from the block. go to your quilt layout and choose the block. then use the little print arrow just as before. now your size from quilt option should be active

    i enlarged my triangle border and my sashing, so mine are 5.5 x 8.75

    Week 5:

    The Hunter's Moon threw me for a loop when I first read through the directions. Once I sat down and started it step by step, it went great! (Okay - so I had to print out 3 copies instead of the 2 when I ironed the freezer paper the wrong way ,blush> ) I think this is my favorite block so far!

    Week 5 Blocks

    Here are my blocks for Week 5. I made the first A3 (the brown one) using the directions from "thatquilt" and reverse appliqued the second one. I may decide to do that one again sometime.

    First attempt at melons or any applique with points for that matter! Let me be the first to say that I left plenty of room to grow with this technique.

    Nice blocks everyone. Perfect melons TymetoShine!

    I experemented with triangle sizes on the printer this morning -- 9" was too pointy but I like the 8 1/2" look. It is surprising how a quarter inch really makes a diffference. I just did my math -- If I use 8" triangles and 1" sashing the quilt will be around 110"

    I spread the printed pages on the floor and went away and then walked past them -- the 8" looks a better ratio to my eyes. Now I will have to make a plexiglass template because it isn't a usual angle. I don't have my tools and supplies here so I will wait to get back to ME before I do any triangles. -- or better yet, make the triangles but not trim them 'til then. I have a lot of squares done -- in the schedule as well as others so I will have my colors scattered all over. I am using scraps, FQs and odds and ends of blues. Next week after the show here in Olympia, I will take pix.

    Here are my blocks for week 5. I see that many have named their quilts, such as Trip Around the World, Lemon Jane, or doing a color themed one. So, I have finally decided what to do with mine to make it different. I am doing all the hand quilting in glitter thread. So, it is a glitzy, glam Jane. I am sashing it in the background white, with some black material from my stash that had beads of gold going through it. Will post pics when I get that far. Enjoy, and must say again, THANKS to everyone for all the helpful hints posted and the great blocks. I am loving this.

    I noticed on this first triangle, that it is a mirrow image to the one in the book, but so what. Who will know? It looks good to me. I will be more careful with the next ones. lol I haven't done the glitz quilting on this one yet.

    I really struggled with the block above, but got it done, and figure that since it is mine, I will live with my mistakes.
    The one below was also a struggle, but I mastered it, and moved on. I just can't make more than one, or I will never get done. Kudos to those who are making more than 1 Dear Jane

    Fraew...talk about perfect melons...yours look great! Like I said...maybe it is that "beginner's luck" helping us with those

    Spartan quilter, the glitzy thread looks great on your blocks. And , hey! don't call them "mistakes" ... I was reading through the first Jane Stickle cyber block party and I really liked the one comment I read that one lady posted. . . they were further along on their quilt blocks and she was enjoying being able to look at the blocks she was now making and was thrilled to see how much she was learning along her journey in making this quilt. I started counting and we have over 100 more melons to make! I am with Fraew and feel I have lots more room to improve on these melons.
    I also remember a lesson I learned from a folk artist many years ago... when I was fretting over "mistakes" in some of the things I was making he very kindly told me that he purposely made sure he had areas that were not perfect in his work because people want to see that the items are handmade....not something perfect turned out in a factory.

    TymeToShine, you're so right. These blocks (A3 and B12) are among the first ones I made when I started my Dear Jane over a year ago. I improved since but I will keep these blocks and put them in the quilt so I can see I made some progress along the way.
    So here are my absolutely not perfect blocks

    Thank you I have a habit of placing applique parts in the wrong place! I did B1 the wrong way too so my circles are placed in a square pointing the wrong way. I still don't know if I will redo this one. I like B12 the way I made it so it will stay as it is.

    I am making 5.5 inch squares for my quilt with .75 inch sashes. The correct size for my triangles would be 6" x 9.75". I am using the software and my foundation piecing prints on 2 pages. Is anyone else enlarging their quilt? How did you enlarge your triangles?

    Yep, I'm enlarging mine to 5X5 blocks. When I do a print>foundation pattern I then check the "size from quilt" box in the ''options' tab. After that, when I click the "preview" button, if I see two print pages are used, I click the 'move' button to move everything to one page. I hope that helps! (someone else on this thread educated me on how to do this.) Let us know if you have more questions on how to do this.

    Thanks Linda! My success is due to the advice from yourself and other who have forged ahead and shared your techniques, warnings, and pictures. Now I need to study how you all did Week 5's blocks - HaHa!

    I think I see the problem... The software prints the block in the same orientation that it appears on the screen if you use the print block from working on quilt. So a side triangle block will print sideways. If you use work on block and choose that block, you will have to enter the width and height of your triangle in the options tab. And with that size triangle, to get it to fit on one sheet, you will have to remove the block name using the options tab. Hope that helps.
