    Mary - look at the greenfairyquilts.blogspot for machine quilting inspiration and go for it!!! I am going to QAYG by hand. Handquilting gives a much softer finish - although I have pieced most of these blocks by machine so far so it shouldn't matter that much. Hand quilting will take much longer - on the other hand you could most assuredly quilt one block each night watching TV [can't do that by machine - not with your feet up anyway.]

    just giving tips on why and why not... you will be finished much faster by machine - particularly if your blocks are totally finished. Do it by machine girl and start on the next project!!! so many possibilities [patterns, etc] and not nearly enough time... at last count I had 31ufos

    WOWWWWW!!!
    ALL BLOCKS ARE WONDERFUL!
    Congrats, Ladies!
    All did a great job!
    Yesterday arrived my birthday gifts!
    Came the "EQ7", "Dear Jean" with its rules and "Dear Hanna" (dream in the future)!
    And the site of Brenda sent me gift a PIN, look how beautiful!
    The works have improved in my house. You need to wait 20-30 so dry the walls very well. Then come the painters do their job. And in the end... deep cleaning!
    So I only went to tell my joy! And today I could sew a small block of another bill of materials. And represents my great state of mind, I show them a photo!
    I've enjoyed every one of your blocks and tonight dream with mine!
    They have a wonderful week!
    A hug!

    WOW WOW WOW - A Happy & Lucky Gladys!!! and a very late happy birthday!!!! How is your house looking?

    a small word of warning - those dear Jane rulers are wonderful for cutting finished blocks to the right size. Just make sure you don't grab it thinking it has normal block markings because the "0.0" point starts 1/4# in. I am thinking about getting some bright paint, nailpolish, or narrow tape to mark the zero point on the square.

    Okay QuiltnNan...I am with you on the "Boo Boo Jane" Love that name...made another block today that is getting tossed into the Boo Boo Basket for my second Jane. I know there are many here making 2 Janes on purpose...and then there are those of us who have "greatness" forced upon us (hee hee) ...so here is my "variation" of A-2 ----hey! that does sound so much more sophisticated than MISTAKE .... and yes, Gus, I must hang my head very low in much shame....I know I know...you gave instructions... you posted wonderful pictures ... and yet....

    Is there a way to mark/bookmark different posts so that it's easy to go back and read them later on? For example, I'm not working on A2 yet but would like to refer to post #684 when I'm ready. (without having to write that number down on a piece of paper that I'll misplace!). Thanks for any help.

    Cindy... click on the #684. That changes the web address at the top to the specific post that you want to go back to. What I do is copy and paste that into an email to myself if i want to refer to it the next day. if i want to look at it much later, i enter it into my Outlook calendar.

    Cindy -
    If you go to the very first page of this thread you will find a huge help thanks to Nancy. At the end of my first post and schedule she has added the post number for the beginning of each week. My instructions to A2 actually was made the day before the week started - on post #684 and the week 'officially began' with post #689 - but this is close enough - unless Nancy can go ahead and change it to the number for the instructions since this had to do with that week. Whichever way it is listed, this will give you a pretty good indication of the post number to go to for the blocks for a specific week.

    Thanks again Nancy for doing this - makes going back so much easier!!

    I'm back from our holiday in San Diego and I didn't even think quilting -- well not quite -- our condo had a lovely quilt on the master bedroom which I did take pix of and will post.

    I will also take pix of all the blocks I have completed and post those later this week.

    BTW -- any ideas for what to do with the dozen or so blocks that I made 4 1/2 inch before I switched to 5 1/2 inch??

    mim, it seems a number of us are making BooBoo Janes. they could go toward that - in the end, if you have 5.5" ones, you can sash the 4.5s larger. or how about trim for pillow cases
    glad you had a good trip

    Mim - I personally would still want to use them in this quilt - a dozen is too much to remake and too few to make into something else I think I would piece some borders around the edge. There are plenty of blocks that have a 1/2" round of piecing. I'm going to assume you did them somewhat in the order we made them...

    looking at our blocks I would add 1/2" to A1, A3, A5, A6, A8, B1-3, B12-13
    you can usesame color, or a contrasting color - or - the same color in the block already but not on the outside.
    [C3 you could piece around it opposite colors as what the outer strips are]

    for the following blocks I would consider changing out the outer strip [B4, B10, C1.... example: remove the 1/2" strip you already have in B4 and replace it with a strip that is 1/2" larger on each side so you have a 5 1/2" block finished]
    Just some thoughts

    I have 17 5" x 5" DJ blocks plus one triangle (Love Forever) plus one little pieced star - all made of Kaffe Fassett fabric - that I would like to give away as a pay it forward. The blocks are ones I made and then changed my mind on colors or made a block in the wrong color. PM me if you can use these blocks.

    Cre8tvlwyr, I am doing around the world and I made some blocks the wrong color. Duh. Then I made some blocks that I just didn't like in terms of color placement. I'm still doing Kona white and Kaffe Fassett. I had a lot of blocks made before this thread started but I'm following it and I love looking at everyone else's work. I have about 50 block to go until my DJ is finished but I'm trying to use a different fabric for each one and I'm out of fabric at the moment so I'm taking a break. We only have a couple of fabric stores where I live and the stock of Kaffe is very, very small. I love the way my quilt is turning out but I made a mistake in limiting myself so much to Kaffe, no fabric repeats and around the world. Every trip out of town involves scouring fabric stores, my poor long suffering husband has been to every fabric store in the Northwest.

    Anyway, I'm happy for these blocks to find a new home in case someone needs them or know someone who would want to use them in a quilt, pillow, etc.
