    Thanks all, for commenting on my idea.

    I was sad to not be able to go to the smastbrook site for her wonderful progress chart. So I designed one in Excel. One can insert pictures in cells. Once inserted, one must use the handles to have the picture fit the cell [unless someone can tell me another way to do that]. I made two tabs to help those that are doing two DJ's. I'm not able to attach it here. If anyone would like a copy, please PM your email address and I will attach it to an email to you. It is Excel 2003 version.

    Storing DJ Blocks

    I try to prepare my blocks in advance so each block gets a small sandwich size plastic bag:

    - Print the pattern with the colors that I have selected (I would get into trouble if I didn't).
    - Trim it to fit into the bag and write the name on the back. I also take notes on the back = "what not to do next time".
    - If I am doing EPP, the pattern is printed on card stock. If paper foundation, regular paper.
    - I number the EPP patterns and then cut them up.
    - Select fabrics and cut accordingly.
    - Dump in the bag and the block is ready to sew.

    Blocks to sew go in my travel quilting bag (a small purse sized plastic carrier) and finished blocks go in a plastic container about 6"x 6".

    BTW - my notes include the dates that I printed and prepared the block as well as when it was completed. I don't know what I will do with all if it when I am done, just keeping track of what I can now.

    Hope this helps. F

    my goodness !! such organisation!! I have some made and am storing them in a clear 2 quart plastic container that strawberries came in from the store. It is big enough that I can also put the printed list pages in (I trimmed off the edges) Now I have to take pix and post. I am making some weeks ahead for those weeks I know I will not be available because of travel and putting the cottage in order when I get back to Maine

    Fraew, great blocks! I love the way using 3 fabrics instead of 2 in C3 makes it look like a different pattern -- I had to compare it to my C3 to make sure it was the same one. Neat!

    Fraew- im trying to figure out how to store my templates, just in case I decide to make this quilt again. Having all the prep work done would really speed up the process.

    Re signature swap- the mother list does a swap yearly and the rules are on the DearJane page. Might help to see their framework and adapt it to this lists needs. I'd be interested with enough notice to fit construction into my schedule. I will make mine into a seperate top. Since I am handquilting, I do not want lots of seams on the front and back of a DJ.

    @ katybob: Thanks. Isn't it fun making this quilt but twisting a little to make it your own?!?
    @ NDQuilts: Me too. I also write on the back of each itty bitty piece the pattern number i.e. C3, B4 and keep them with the finished block in the baggie. When the quilt goes together, the patterns will stay behind with the paper printed pattern in the baggie all in the plastic box. Does that make sense. Why would I want to make another one? It's an illness that we share I guess.

    NDQuilts - although I really really like the idea of regular size blocks, I would much rather have more participation - ideally everyone - than finished blocks. I also think the undertaking of making many many - say 100 blocks - would be both time-consuming and expensive. As much as I think a quilt made of everyone's signature blocks would be awesome, I'm not sure the expectation is realistic - since I would not expect us to start this now, we can get an interest list for both going - or even mix it up a bit - that is if people want full blocks, we can exchange a mixture of both methods & those wanting full size blocks can add to the smaller rectangles to make those blocks complete. If I had a final list of 25 who were willing to make full-size blocks and 75 who only wanted to make rectangle with info on it, those wanting the full blocks would make 25blocks + 75rectangles and I would distribute them the way they came - everyone making the blocks would receive 25blk + 75 rect and those making rectangles would receive 100 rectangles only.

    Exchanging this way - everyone could finish off their own quilts the way they want to - those wanting a piano key border on front or back could easily do so.

    Well, I finally caught up with my just takes 2 BOM so now I get to work on these I hope to get the first 3 done in the next day or two and then off to doing this weeks. I like the idea of the signature blocks also, just depends on what the size is and how many as to if I can do it. Quiltnan, I am pming you for the excel sheet. It is so nice for you to do this for us!

    I am trying to use the my block feature to put scans of my blocks in and am having trouble. I have the scans named correctly and sized correctly but when I try to put them in the correct place I cannot find it. I installed my software with the default on and tried to find the C\programfiles\E.Q.\dj\pics\mychart (okay I abbreviated some of that here) and do not find that. I tried going the other route they suggested of going to c drive, then program files then Eq, then dear jane and at this point the only choice I have that comes up is "stash" - the dear jane does not come up. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Linda
