    Spartan - Glitzy Jane is going to be beautiful. Your blocks get better each time! What a story you will be able to tell. KUDOS!

    Tyme and XS your blocks look great! Keep it up.

    Am I supposed to be making some of these and posting them? I have been so frustrated with Jane, not because of difficulty, but because I had to remake a block since I grabbed the wrong color. And because I rushed the redo, it came out wonkier than the first...perfect in the wrong color vs. wonky in the right color. Anyone see why I threw my hands up and took a break???

    Ok venting is over. Thanks for listening (reading). Back on the wagon tonight! Pinky promise.

    Beautiful blocks everyone. I can't believe that some are already on rows J & K. I finally mailed my oldest DGD's wedding quilt to her (too heavy to carry in my suitcase) and I finished the quilt for my DGGD's first birthday. My cutting table is clear and I hope to finish 1 or 2 more blocks before I fly out to CA for the wedding. You keep me inspired even though I am so far behind.

    there is no 'behind' Losie [except the ones we sit on
    Fraew.... I share your venting.... so what happened to me - aside from the fact I haven't posted much - actually will post next weeks tomorrow because I have a couple more pointers and was so far behind I simply decided to skip over this weeks a while! I've been enjoying sitting back with DH watching or simply listening to tv while hand appliqueing & sewing. I haven't quite gotten to the part where you do the whole thing by hand although I must say it is sooooo very very much softer when you do! here cometh the frustration... ahem
    since I've been working by hand I fast forwarded and started a few hand appliqued blocks. namely, E1 and E2 [and C5, 6 and D3...] well it appears I cut the background square of E2 just a tad small. Measured the center of the book pattern with the Dear Jane square by accident - BE CAREFUL - dont do that one!! so it measured 3 1/4" finished instead of the real 3 1/2" eeeek!! when I sewed on the final border to the square which was appliqued and had been sewn on a generous piece of background so I could have prevented this... I placed my DJ square ruler once again to 'trim' the excess [haha] off and thought to myself ..'looks small' Because it was! now I thought I could do what Jane herself did because if you look at the picture of E2 it looks as though she added a narrow background border in addition to the sashing. oh well... no This one I will add a different final row to.

    Thanks, Fraew, for the comments. Yes, I can see the improvements, myself, so that encourages me to forge ahead. I have gotten a little behind, but so what, I will just keep on plugging along. I am also working on a couple of other quilts. One for friends who are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary this summer. So, I may have to set Jane aside for awhile. Such is life. Again to all others who have posted blocks, I love all the different fabrics that are being used, and the colors, WOW. Keep them coming.
    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    Monica ( Gus) has just asked me to let you all know that she is having some problems posting at the moment and that she hopes to sort it out soon. Is anyone else experiencing any problems - especially if adding 'photos etc ? Does your cursor move as you type - or is it a bit delayed at times ?
    Thanks !

    I actually got on - but still no cursor and my page keeps going to the top!!! will try to cut and paste a word doc. Hopefully this wont disappear yet again. One of the times I lost my post I was actually told it was too short!!! imagine that let me see if this goes through.... still acting up cuz I hit "enter " three times and my cursor is stuck on the word "lost" although the letters are going onto the screen.... if you are looking Patrice - we need help on this board I would PM but everything gets lost as this may also.....

    ok ... now lets see ...WOW my cursor came back...

    I said I would put up another tute - so here goes!! [pasting what I wrote yesterday and saved to Word...]
    I do love paper piecing because it gives you such great precision as a final result. However, having said that... I always evaluate a block I want to sew, whether it be a DJ or some other project, to see if it can be easily measured and cut to avoid having to take out that paper. I thank whoever it was gave us the idea of using the lighter weight child crayola paper, but I still prefer to skip the paper whenever possible. Many of my blocks that are totally PP on 'that quilt' I have adapted to a combo of PP and careful cutting and sewing... you MUST be accurate in those two steps! Accuracy means you have to know where to cut and where 'you' sew your 1/4" - not everyone sews the same. It doesn't matter that your seams are actually closer to 3/8" so long as you cut your pieces 3/8" beyond the sewing line

    I will post 2 example of what I mean:
    Block C-2 'streak of lightning' is actually this week's block ...well just got it finished last night! Instead of PP in the center, I cut strips 1 1/4" wide [you may want to cut them slightly wider and make your adjustments after the first seam.] cut two of the dark and one of the light each 4 1/2" long and stagger them. This will give you the top and bottom rows. Also cut 2 light pieces and one dark piece 2" x 1 1/4" for your middle row - stagger them 3/8." Make a 'template' of one row on tracing paper. When you have sewn the strips [or three pieces] together in the order in the photos, cut them according to the template, matching the tracing paper lines to the seam lines and adding 1/4" seam to each side. Your strips should be 1 1/4" tall.
    [IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/MONICA%7E1/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image002.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/MONICA%7E1/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image004.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/MONICA%7E1/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image006.jpg[/IMG]

    I made a template out of the corner section and cut two+ two in reverse, adding seam allowance. I sewed a ¼” seam on the larger side piece that will house the last diamonds to within ¼” of inside edge. Next I attached the finished edge to my center section. I cut the diamond out of my template and transferred the placement to my block for reverse sewing. I also hand sewed the remaining two corners.

    Here are my three blocks for this week!! I showed you C5 in a tute already. I also combined straight piecing with careful cutting and PP for C4 and C8. I only PP'd one section in each:Name:  DSC_0299.JPG
Views: 257
Size:  1.40 MB

    For C4 – I measured the center sections. They finish 3/8 and ½” sections. I knew I needed several inches of yellow 7/8” wide and 1” wide. I started with a 1 x 6” section of yellow attached to a slightly narrower strip of white. Evened out the edge and then trimmed it down to what I needed so it could be pieced together without paper! All white background finishes ¼” So you need to cut a long strip ~ 16” total a minimum of ¾” wide [I prefer to simply cut wider and after the first seam is sewn, I press and make sure I have ½” of white left. The only paper-pieced part I made template for was the outermost triangles [for the triangles around the inner square, I cut 2 - 2 1/2" squares once diagonally]

    I also “precut” three separate template sections for paper piecing to not waste fabric for C-4 above. I often use civil war charm squares and are limited to what I have.

    For C-8, Hani’s Crown again I only PP’d one portion. After the center 1 ¾” square, I cut two
    1 ¾” squares of print diagonally. Next the PP sections and lastly, two 3 ¾” triangles cut diagonally.

    Gus, you truly are the most helpful thread leader. I've been MIA and poor Jane thinks I've forgotten her. I miss her and all y'all. ( to my DJ-BFF) Those silly classes I'm taking .....well that's all I want to say about that. Jane I'll finish you I promise!

    So, after mowing grass, trimming up 3 evergreens and hauling 4 loads of branches to a hole to be burned, I remembered that it is Sunday, and I should get some blocks posted. Life is really making me slow down on my DJ, but even if I post late, I will hang in there.
    First is C4 Tic Tac Toe

    The last one is C-8 and I know that if I didn't have support of this thread, and THAT QUILT blog, I could never do some of these blocks, but I am still having fun.

    Keep up the good work, everyone, and keep posting, love the blocks of others.

    and memories are sewn.

    Wow those blocks look awesome ladies!

    On Friday I promised to get back on the wagon; so I did. Since I have fallen behind, I figured it didn't matter what blocks I did as long as I did something! So I selected blocks that my fragile ego could manage:

    D13 - Field of Dreams
    M10 - Simple Simon - I think the name speaks for itself.

    These blocks have to be made too right?!?

    On the wagon, strapped in and making progress...no thanks to my "swap queen" DJ BFF who strong armed me into doing board swaps. Great fun if you haven't tried them. Oops, don't let me distract any of you too.
