    Gladys, your curves look great! Glad you enjoyed doing them too. I felt the same way and have kept putting off trying to do curves...but I am glad to be learning new things here.

    Aneal, wonderful blocks for this week...I am impressed at those who are keeping up with the schedule...I hope to catch up one day. So neat to be able to look at others blocks as I try to sew mine.

    I am enjoying any and all hints from those who are posting them!

    Hi Cindy -- I use a lot of pins -- matching the first and last corners (marking pins) and wherever there are seams that come together. I push the pins straight thru and fasten the 2 sides together with pins that are not near the sew line. As I sew, I pull out the "marking pins" It can make for slow sewing but the sections come together right.

    If this doesn't make any sense, PM me and I can send you pix of the way I do it

In other words, I divide the blocks into several pieces that seem to make sense and as I add the larger sections together I have trouble getting them lined up properly and things go wonky. Any advice from you - or anyone - greatly appreciated.

    I try to be careful of the 1/4" seam, and I thought I was a better pp.

    Hello, Spartan Quilter!
    Those blocks are so great! And you and you are giving me ideas on how quiltear each block!
    Thank you very much for sharing your photos!
    As told in the personal thread of my photos will not serve my file if you don't have the "Microsoft Visio ®" program.
    But I couldn't download the clean scheme as a JPG file that accompanied here for download.
    There can someone explain us how to insert photos with another more common program.
    I hope to really make the diagram with your photos!
    A hug!

    Okay, I am a bit behind...here is week 7

    I have a question about B-11. I followed the pattern on the CD. The total size of the square turned out a bit too small in one corner. What was the difference in the way That Quilt offered directions? Did anyone try both ways and if so, which turned out better?

    Linda, those blocks ... are so beautiful! I love them!
    I did not make this block yet. But I think that those who are members of our group, have done you very well and are very similar to the real Jane!I do not understand the written directions, but can follow sequence of photos, so I think I will try the Tutorial for That Quilt.
    A big hug!

    Linda, your blocks are beautiful. I can't help you with the measurements

    Spartan, I love your blocks. It's great to see how you're doing the quilting!

    Gus, that's too bad! Now you have to do it all over again. The pieces aren't that small though - I have no idea if that's a comfort

    Gus: The reason I haven't been posting is varied. Being away from home due to a job from 6:30 am until 7:30 at night is a big reason, having trouble with my shoulder which sometimes keeps me from holding a needle or threading one. . . I guess it is just life. I do read the posts and Love what I see. So insperational. I hope to start again soon.

    hopefully this message will go through! I actually wrote a lengthy one this morning and got a reply that it wasn't 'long enough!' ??? 'please add at least 10 more characters??? this happened to anyone else?

    I had thanked Jeanine, Dakota, and others for responding to my question - I know life gets in the way - me too!! I am behind and ah well... am glad I put breaks here and there as I had not originally planned to do so when I worked on a schedule because the 2010 DJ had 2 more blocks weekly than our schedule. I just want everyone who has not posted not to feel shy about popping in and posting a note once in a while - even if they feel they have nothing to share or are behind. This is a very supportive group and we will get done eventually!

    I surfed my favorite sites this morning and downloaded the next installment of 'just takes 2' from Gay's "sentimentalstitches.net" site. She has a great tute on "Y-seams" [our favorite!!] check it out:
    http://sentimentalstitches.net/instr...r-quilt-block/

    I had actually pieced together B8 [which I lost] exactly this way & guess I'll be doing it again!!

    Happy sewing Great blocks everyone...WOW!!! and good to hear from all
    Gus

    Gladys, you could open the blank form in something like PhotoShop. You could then paste or place the image of each square, resizing that square until it fit into the part of the form.

Has anyone ever PM'd people who have signed up for things to ask if 'all is well' etc....give status report... ?? thoughts??
    I am one who signed up, and hasn't posted. Every thing is OK with me. Our guild is having a quilt show in May, and I have been very busy trying to get things finished for it. Signed up with great intentions, but then could make a decision as to the colour layout. Thought about doing a multi colour, or a teal and black, or a teal and white. Once the quilt show is over, maybe I can finally make a decision and get started. I did spend some time on the computer, colouring the squares a couple of different ways, but wasn't happy enough with any of them.

    Cre8tvlwyr,

    The Quilt for Quilters swap is about half the size of your DJ project, but even so, a bit on the large size. Initially, we had 62 people sign up. Now, a swap is a bit different-- you've got partners to be accountable to, etc. That said, I did to a "mass email" of sorts at the halfway mark of the project. (People have six months to complete a quilt.)

    I asked them to answer one question, like a survey: Please select the one answer that best describes the status of your involvement in the swap:

    --- 100% (completed and shipped)
    --- 75% (sandwiched and about to quilt)
    --- 50% (top is pieced)
    --- 25% (top piecing is underway)
    --- 5-10% (most cutting, some piecing done)
    --- Life happened and I have to drop out

    I then posted the results as a pie chart. I know the results encouraged ME to get moving on my partner's quilt.

    The other thing to consider is when your project started. Q4Q started in December 2011, and shortly thereafter the new QB was released. We lost a few people to that. Some of them are still participating in the swap, even though they are no longer using the board.

    Write something fun and encouraging, that makes it safe to answer "What was I thinking???" as much as "I'm ahead of everyone else!" ;-)

    Ann Clare, I love your blocks. I finally have the quilt top completed for my DGD's wedding quilt. I want to take it to Orlando and quilt it on the long-arm machine that is for rent. I hope to get back to my Lemon DJ. Are you using a color sequence or just scrap quilting?

    What has happened to the board? I posted my blocks for this week, and when they first appeared, they fit within my computer screen, but this afternoon and now again, this evening, the size of my pictures has GREATLY increased. Anybody know what is going on?

    I've gotten a bit side-tracked with my grandmother's flower garden. I'm trying to get it done by quilt show/county fair season....

    I got a note from Patrice, and all is well. I should have posted the question in the HELP forum. Thanks to the person who brought this to her attention.

    I printed out and have cut the fabric pieces for 6 or 8 PP blocks and set them aside on my table. I pin the fabrics and paper for each section si I won't mix things up. I have now put all the blues in a baggie and they are packed in the big bag I am shipping next week. Once I get to ME I won't have time for several weeks to do anything. I have to finish the pine ceiling in the second bedroom (which is also my sewing room) I almost got done last fall and install the wiring and light.

    I really love seeing everyones blocks -- they make me want to do better
