    How do you do this? It sounds interesting. I have a new machine so could probably do it, just not picturing it in my head lol

    Hi ladies! If I'm out of line here, please just tell me...OK? I went to the previous thread to post today's "show and tell" and found that this new one had been created.

    I finished all of my blocks and triangles last fall....worked on them for about a year and a half, although not continuously. This month I finally made my design wall and arranged the blocks and am in process of adding sashing strips and cornerstones. Three rows are finished so far.....yay!!

    Obviously they are not in the same order as Jane's....when I began I didn't think I would EVER come close to finishing all those little blocks! So I just selected civil war'ish fabrics I liked and matched them to blocks randomly. The result was that it took several days to come up with a balanced arrangement.

    For those of you just starting your DJs, there IS life after all those bitty pieces! Happy quilting!

    Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift....that's why it's called the present.

    I am loving all the pictures that have been posted so far, and I finally got the pictures taken of week 2, and so I am posting them now. This is becoming an addiction and hard to walk away from.

    I used a fussy cut of some material showing the Christ child in a quilt that I did for my daughter this past Christmas. Love that block. So does she. I also did a fussy cut in the yellow block, using material from another daughter's Christmas quilt.

    And here is my design wall, with all my scrap pieces of material, so I don't end up putting 2 of same colors beside each other. It is just a piece of foam insulation and I pin them to that. I am also trying to incorporate material from previous quilts that I have made, so when I come to each block, I see if I can find a similiar color from a previous quilt. So, I may actually not use all of these, but it gives me the color arrangement that I want. I am learning to reverse applique, maybe not right, but it looks good to me. Enjoy the pics. I just realized that I have the picture on it's side, will post it again next week, right side up. I don't know how to correct this here.

    I would suggest to install the DJ software again. It seems to me somewhere something went wrong as you're missing quite a lot.

    What a Great Idea! Okay if I copy that? It'll also let me know what other fabric I need to purchase. Thanks for such a wonderful show & tell.

    My rulers arrived. I was expecting them to take longer. LOL I spent some time with the DJ program and decided how I wanted my colours to be. Didn't want to do a Trip Around the World layout as I have seen too many of them and I want mine to be different. LOL I always have to make things more difficult. Anyway I have printed out a road map for myself and the first 2 weeks of blocks. I have to finish off a quilt top to get it to the LAQ, but just have the borders to add and it won't take long. Now I just have to dig out my bin of batiks. I am still trying to decide if I want each block to be monochromatic or to use a background fabric. I am leaning towards to monochromatic.

    KR - you have done a wonderful job on the blocks you have there. I see that you've done a lot of the difficult ones

    Spartan - I like the organized design wall you've devised.

    Thanks, We tried re-installing it twice and it was still the same. Have been talking to tech support at EQ and Penny says it has something to do with the fact the DJ was written in 2002 and I have a computer with Windows 7 and somewhere along the line somebody is not talking to somebody between the program and the computer.

    this afternoon, i decided to design a DJ similar to the original, but with only 5 fabrics. so i was recoloring blocks/patches for quite a while. i was almost done and the program decided to shut down!! well, nothing i did was saved. so i tried again, but decided to save the quilt and file every time i changed colors. i know, rookie mistake.

    Of course, anyone who can benefit from that design wall, is welcome to use the idea. I just knew that it worked for me. Keep up the good work, everyone, and keep posting pictures. Love them. So glad that I joined, even as late as it was.

    Same problems here. I can't use the design wall function of the software and even after spending a long time on the phone with tech support we couldn't get it to work. That was disappointing. I ended up doing a convoluted scheme involving Photoshop and it works but isn't great.

    I enjoy seeing everyone's blocks. So many variations!

    Here are mine for the first 2 weeks.
