    Ok...thanks ladies - and all those blocks are amazing - Gladys, Cindy, katybob...
    Now how is it that you say you are 41 blocks behind and you did TR6?? did I miss something?
    Yes, Cindy - picking out what kind & size of sashing is a real eeeeeeeeeeek! It will effect everything I like the 'storm at sea' of Bonnie Hunter - but it would make the sashing sections 2" wider. This would make a nice size quilt for a bed - however - Bonnie didn't have the tris & I love them - & I've done 1 already [1/4th of the way!] I agree that the easiest way to adjust - or best - would be to make the tris larger, because that much extra sashing between tris might not look too hot. Maybe I should redo those 13 and use that wonderful jacket idea by putting the ones I have across the bottom of a jacket??? o - that would mean no more tris til I get this determined....
    Gus
    just finished F4 and F6 will post later today - maybe I can add more

    Argghhhh! I read the 'code' wrong. TR-6 means top #6. I was reading it as Triangle Right #6. I would rather have done the other triangle - looks easier! I'm behind because I did not do many blocks from weeks April 22 - Aug 26th. I didn't try to catch up, I just jumped in where we're supposed to be.

    I hadn't thought about your suggestion for making the sashings 2" wider. I'll have to think about that before I commit. What are the rest of you doing about sashing? I'm doing 5" unfinished blocks.

    I'm making 1" unfinished sashing with the background fabric. White for the pastel DJ and cream or unbleached muslin for the CW one. I found a small flowered print on white for the backing on the pastel one and a cream with a small print for the CW. I'd planned to make both backings with the background fabric, but ran across good sales on the prints. I'll decide at the end whether I'll use background fabric or a variety of fabric for the "between" triangles, depending on what I have left by then.

    Week 30 (okay...I skipped several weeks....will try to catch up later... )

    TR-6 was made from some fabric I got in Paducah on our vacation. F-13 has the circles and melons made from some fabric I got from a quilting store I enjoy going to when I visit my Dad in Grand Marais, Minnesota. They always have wonderful fabrics!
    F-10 was done using EPP. It worked great...except...I did not realize the diamonds were not all equal sizeson the side until I got ready to sew it together...had to do some frog stitching and correct my mistake before proceeding.

    Thanks Nancy for the heads up on the melon tute.
    Cindy A - your G-4 looks great. Funny how it does seem easier now that we have done so many other blocks that are harder! :-)

    Thanks, Nancy, for the link on melons. I printed it out and will put it with my book.
    I have just gotten caught up on posts and pictures, and love all of them. I have been gone for WEEKS, and am so far behind, that after I get all the Christmas quilts done, I am hoping to get going again, and I am going to do what others have done. Just jump in where the schedule is at. But, you know, the best laid plans. Right now, I am quilting one for a 50th anniversary gift, doing my granddaughter's graduation quilt, and a son-in-law's. Just can't get Jane squeezed in there. And working part time, cleaning up the yard for winter, canning the garden produce, and think I have been whining long enough. Have a great week, everyone. Sure glad others are still posting pictures. Did so many get behind on the last DJ group? I might have to wait for a third group to get going again. LOL
    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    I've actually been thinking maybe this group can do an extension at the end of the current schedule!?

    You ARE busy, SpartanQuilter! Have missed seeing you post here, jump back in when you can. Even when I'm not making the blocks I always check here and look at everyone elses.

    Might get a few pics posted later today but I make no promises anymore!!! boy and to think I started this

    oh well.... been thinking of posting the amount of time the blocks take me so that perhaps you can pick and choose which [several] to make if your behind... [of course as I remain.... ] or at least indicate which are easier

    meanwhile - the blocks are great Cindy and Linda!!
    have a great rest of the weekend and happy sewing

    I also took a couple of pictures of everything I had laid out in the original DJ order. However, I think I will have to rearrange a few of them for the colors to look better.
