    Well, here are my week 6 triangles. Nothing fancy, but they are done, even though the one isn't trimmed yet. I have not gotten the hand quilting done on my triangles yet. Just too much else going on in my life right now, but so far, am still on track. Thank goodness for next week, to catch up. Sure have been loving all the blocks that are being posted.

    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    Jacquie - really like your bright colors,,,I keep getting tempted each week to start a second Dear Jane when I look at all the possibilities!

If you take your DJ ruler to show them, they might even be able to cut the tips off for you, too. I'm trying to use my DJ... I made sure my new length uses the same top angle as the original... but that is really cumbersome... would rather just have the right size. We have a LOT of tri's to go
    Thanks for the idea, Nancy. I think I will do that. We will be gone all next week on a camping trip and that means I'll be another week behind. I am taking some applique blocks for my DGGD's quilt to work on during the week. I get so inspired when I see everyone's blocks. I just might go out and try to get a block made this evening.

    jacquie, A9 isn´t that hard, just a lot of pieces LOL And if it doesn´t lay flat, beat it with a rubber mallet! I never tried it but they say it works!

    Here's a link to a DJ quilt that has the most amazing sashing and cornerstones. Yikes! There are instructions on how to do it using the CD.

    it really is an amazing quilt. however, for me, the blocks get lost in the complicated sashing pattern. i'm keeping my sashings plain so that my blocks will be the focus. and her title "after 5 years..." ! I don't think I want to delay my quilt finish when the blocks are finally done.

    Love Bonnie's quilt with the sashings, Chay!! Thanks for posting. Yep, the best laid plans.... I had intended on enlarging the quilt by placing a medallion in the center. But I like this one better. The only thing is I do want to have the scalloped border with triangles and Bonnie has left them off. I think the best way to handle that would be to leave the outer star points off the storm at sea sashing. Actually there is another complication if you want to QAYG this - with the 1/2" plain sashing, your quilted batt & top blocks fit nicely under the sashing so there is no need to add more. The storm at sea sashing is wider so once again, you need to add batting and the QAYG would seem pointless. The only way I see around that is to QAYG in sections rather than individual blocks. I promise to get my act together to post some pictures within the next couple of days!!

    Everyone's blocks and triangles are absolutely amazing!! As for A9 - since there's a 'break' start it then. When you break it up into sections or simply go around the center by paper or foundation piecing, it isn't really that difficult. I think there is a block in "nearly insane" [at Road to CA - one quilter called her version 'clearly insane'] that has around 200 pieces!! here's a link to the book about the quilt made in the 1800s

    I'm working a little ahead because March is going to be a busy month for me. A-9 may have a lot of little pieces, but as Al Jolsen said, "You ain't seen nothing yet" until you get to A-11! (I think it was Al Jolsen.) That's a tough one!

    I have figured out a different way to do A-11 when you get to that point. It will eliminate the need for those often dreaded "Y-seams" I think outside of that, the block is pretty straightforward. I have not made it yet myself. But I have scanned the original block with my alterations to the seams This will give you a nine-patch. You simply have to construct the corners in a different manner.

    Hope this helps!!

    Gus, I think that will work. What about this? The numbers I wrote in aren't really right, but you get the idea!

    My House in repair...

    Hello to all!
    Congratulations! Each one of their blocks are incredible, really look beautiful! Fabrics and various colors are also a pleasure for the eyes!
    Sorry to not be participating, but life intervened in my plans!
    We should do a few repairs at our home and work was complicated. This caused one greater time extension for more than one month skillful, so several weeks still remaining!
    If you need a break from your seams and a smile, show them some pictures of what my house now! Of course I can not sew ... even in my dreams! Hahahahaha!!!
    I hope that all follow very well, sorry can not help them at the moment, but I hope this ends soon to go back to what I love most: sewing!
    I will try to login at least once a week to not be so lost!
    A big hug to all!
