    I am working on block D8 this evening. The melons are trying to kill me. I fooled around with them and just wasn't happy. I am reverse appliqueing them. I am going to attempt needle turn applique on the diamonds. I haven't done it before. I watched several videos on youtube. Hopefully it will work out. Still can't post pictures. I need an adapter for my camera card. Hoping to make it to store in the morning , and I hope they still make the one I want. I am going to Hilton Heads for a week with my brother. I have been saving some of the handwork to take with me. Any LQS I need to visit while there?

    D6, c6, c3

    D6 - Paper Pieced

    C6 - I printed the pattern on card stock. The center circle was cut out of the template. I cut the center cross from the circle. Pink fabric was basted to the center cross template and to the outer template. These were whipped stitched together (English Paper Piecing). This was appliqued on top of the white fabric forming the white melons. Previous near death by melon insanity forced me to be creative.

    C3 - Redo, English Paper Pieced

    I was looking at C6 last night. I thought about reverse appliqueing the melons on to the center. Then reverse applique the circle on. I need to think about it some more. In my mind it works. Not sure about if it will work in reality. I have done reverse applique by machine on circles before and it worked well. I tried needle turn applique last night on one of the diamonds on D8 last night, it looks pretty good. NOw to do the other 3 diamonds.

    Here's my Week 23 blocks. These were definitely easier than the previous week's blocks, but D-8 is next and I'm not looking forward to it!

    Gosh ladies! These blocks are so tiny and danity. I'm just lurking but I really admire your work. This is definitely a one-day-I-will-do-that type project.
    Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.

    Well, I am finally back with some blocks, not caught up and no QAYG on any of the blocks, but am on vacation next week, so taking along to do some. Since I got so far behind, I am not following the guidelines, but just going down row D, and sewing as they come. I got as far as D7, and quit till after vacation, because D8 looks like a real stinker. And this post is my 1000th post. A milestone for me. Sorry for the long post, but wanted to get all this posted. Put on the dark glasses when you get to D1, it is pretty bold. I am posting to pictures, the 3 signature quilts that put me so far behind.
    Here is D7-a fairly simple block.

    And here is D6, and yes, this is satin material, so remember that this is a glitzy DJ. I got this piece of material from a granddaughter's prom dress that I had to shorten. Imagine my terror of cutting into a big bucks prom dress. Just had to use it in one of the blocks.

    On to D5 and another not too hard of a block. I am improving on my sewing, can see the difference from when I started.

    This is D4 and once again, these little ovals are a bear to do, but will look fine, once I get the applique done on them.

    Block D3 was done a while back, so here is D2. A little tricky, but taking time and lots of thought, I am happy with how it turned out.

    Here is D1 and this material was used by one of the granddaughters in her 13 year quilt.

    The blocks are looking fabulous everyone! Hopefully on my next set of days off I can put out a couple myself. I've had other "needs" pop up which took me away from DJ.
    spartan-->enjoy your vacation!

    Spartan Quilter: That is going to be a precious quilt, using such memories in it. But be sure to not somewhere where the fabric is from. Take it from one who can no longer remember which fabric came from what child/occasion. Oh, and congratulations on your 1000th post!

    I did block C6 last night. I did the center as a circle that i reverse appliqued by machine. Then I needle turn appliqued the part over the top. When I finished I cut som of the circle fabric out from behind. It came out pretty good. I still can't get pictures to post. I bought a new cable to get the pictures from my camera to the computer and I am still unable to get it to work. I am leaving for Hilton Head in the morning and will get my SIL to help me. She is really good with a MAC. Hope I can get it fixed.
    All of the blocks are just amazing. Each one is just more amazing than the last. SUch beautiful work.

    Thanks to all for all the comments and compliments. Sure did feel good to get a few blocks done up again, but have this 3 day weekend at work, and not getting much else done. A 10 hour work day with a 45 minute drive one way, doesn't leave much time or energy to sew. And I have learned the hard way, not to sew when I am tired. lol
    Have a safe and happy 4th of July, everyone.

    Well,I do work at a hospital, in fact a brand new one. We just moved in last august. I am not a nurse, God bless everyone of them, but I like to think that my job is almost as important. I feed them. Have always loved to cook, and will work till they kick me out. lol

    @spartan: Very important! If you feed them, they will come. I have the pounds to prove it.

    everyone's blocks are just awsome. and the colors are beautiful. they show such talent in color coordination. i am just awful with matching colors. i always have to just pull one out of the other fabric when quilting. and hope for the best.
    one of ll yr old grandson's used my completed jane to cover up with last nite. and i do believe he knew how special it was. i am still not completely done with mine. have not put a label on the back yet......
