    Thank you, gailinva!
    I use threads "Yli Threads 60/2 ply are 100% cotton" color it closest to the piece to apply or smoke color.
    The needles are the "Black Gold Hand Sewing Needles (Applique/Sharps)". Only I have to say that she is "they wash", but they are wonderful because they pass through any plot of fabric as if nothing!.
    And the method is the Appliqué whit Freezer Paper. I learned it to Erin Russek and Karen Kay Buckley (in her blog the first and the second for her DVD). As in my country there is not freezer paper, I use templates that I conducted with washed medical x-rays.
    And I can only say that the secret is in practice much and each block will be better than the last.
    I hope have answered your questions clearly!
    A big hug!

It bugs me, but like I said earlier I don't think I'll worry about it. On A-4 I should have cut the last pieces (edges) at least a 1/4" wider. I'll probably take the time to fix that one (not too much reverse sewing with that boo-boo!!).

    P.S. Gave up on trying to find my phone and went and got another tonight. Bummer, though, the pictures are noticeably grainier.

    Wk 9 - A2, A4, B11

    Late homework...

    A2 - Paper pieced
    A4 - Paper pieced, fudging and machine piecing
    B11 - Redrafted in EQ6 to look more like the original. Paper pieced, applique, making due and bonus outer strip to hide "making due".

    Thanks Anael! Fudging as I used the word here means cheating...which I am doing more often with these blocks. When I measured for the border, my cut strips were longer than the sides of the pieced middle. I didn't let that bother me and sewed my white corners to fit, which was about 1/8" difference on each side. I cut the border wider than I needed so that I could trim to 5". And there you have "fudging".

    Well done katybob! I admire all of you who make 2 or more Janes!

    Gladys, gorgeous AOTH block! I'm not that good at needle turn applique so I won't start that one! I do have the book but I will wait. First have to practice some more and find the right thread for applique.

    Thanks Anael and Fraew. If I hadn't started the first one last summer, I probably wouldn't be making two at the same time. But, on the other hand, I'd like to make at least 6 more using the fabric everyone else has chosen!

    Y'all have inspired me again. I started my Jane back with the last group in 2010, but never got very far. I probably won't be able to keep up this time either, but I am hoping I can at least get some more done. I won't be able to stay on schedule though as I do not have all the fabrics I need, so I am just making blocks as I can. But I just wanted to pop in and say thank you to you guys for giving me another extra push to get Jane going again!!

    I am actually making two quilts, one is a rainbow Jane and is my tester (so If I make mistakes, they stay as this is just to get a feel for the blocks before I make them for real!!) and the other is in my favorite colors orange and blue. I had a witty title for it, but now I forgot ... sigh ... it will come back to me someday .....

    The rainbow one is scrappy with what I have lying around and muslim as the background.

    Regardless of whether I keep up or not, thanks to everyone for the inspiration to keep going on my Jane!!

    I have attached my mock ups for you to see!

    @ Anael - Thanks!

    @ Katybob - I'm super impressed with your points on A-10. Is that applique or you've done it in a seam?

    CindyA - The brown one is applique and I used "that quilt's" method for the blue one. The blue one went together alot smoother than the brown one.

    Hi, Ladies!
    All blocks are so wonderful!
    I do not tire of repeating it! Each work is beautiful!

    Gailinva: your welcome! I hope it was useful!
    Anauel: thank you very much for your words to my Appliqué! It really is what I like, I enjoy much to do so.
    Yesterday I could return to my DJ, as before the works I had drawn on graph paper new A-1 block, I was all afternoon sewing! With great care and dedication, but could not finish. I hope do it tomorrow to give at least ended the week 3!
    I am very behind in all of you, but I'm learning a lot!
    I even learned to sew curves with "a twist", as it was something that really in 3 years had failed. It was not perfect... but it is an acceptable block for me.
    So ladies, I hope tomorrow to bring here with good news to all you!
    I hope they rest well!
    A big hug!

    Ok, after hearing all the comments about "that quilt", I need to ask, how do I find THAT QUILT's info? So far, I have just been going with the book and the info that was posted at the beginning of this thread and anything I can think of by myself.

    before you speak THINK
    T – is it True? H – is it Helpful? I – is it Inspiring? N – is it Necessary? K – is it Kind?

    Hi, girls!
    Well, I see that today there was little movement here!
    But I came to fulfill my promise and share my joy!
    Today I could complete the 3 week! Yes, I know, I am very behind, but I began to trace path! Hahaha!
    We turn to ours! When you did A-1 special, I fell in love with that block and as yet had not EQ, so I drew on graph paper.
    And after many seams, I got my block!
    I am not very happy with the Centre of the same. But I am proud to have been able to draw and sewing a block we only sew along in this group! Only I forgot to make the molds in mirror, so it will also be special for that! Hahaha!
    Then I made A-5. I love it! And with B-1 I completed the week 3.
    I leave photos and I hope they are to your liking! See you in the next installment!
    A strong hug!

    Thanks, Nancy. I had been there before, but couldn't remember how I got there. I am now adding it to MY FAVORITES. Then I can go there for help as we get to the harder blocks.

    Spartan Quilter, I'm doing it like you (the book, this site, and anything I can think of on my own!). I just used "thatquilt" for the first time and it did help. But like Gus I think it looks like sometimes they make it harder than it has to be (or at least it 'reads' like that). I've started a new file on my computer and copy/paste notes from here. I also just started a new file and copy/paste instructions from "thatquilt." That way it's easier to access when I get to that block. (I make sure to note the web address and date I retrieved.) And in my dreams I believe that I'll go back into those notes and make my own notes after I've actually made the block, so that they next DJ I make will be even better!
