    Moving along.... very slowly but making progress!

    Here are my E11 and F10...




    ok... so I can no longer tell if a picture is loading or not. It used to be that once a picture was loaded it would slowly appear in my reply box. Yesterday and today it did not show up until I hit 'post quick reply.' that is - I hope it shows up today!
    Happy sewing today!

    Gus, nice blocks! I'm having the same problem with posting pictures. When you go advanced you will see your pictures are there.

    Dear Jane Friends!!! I have missed all of you however with encouragement from my DJBFF, Fraew I am trying to pick up where I left off last spring. My new goal: One block from the current week and One block from a previous week to catch up. Here are three blocks. One from this week and TWO I had started and just finished up today.

    Thank you Fraew!

    Great blocks!! Welcome back Sheri keep up the great work.. doing some catch-up myself...

    Here are my next three blocks: G13, F5, and F9. I followed basic instructions on thatquilt.com except for a little change to F9. I noted that the original center section was a bit larger and the melons tilted differently, so I trimmed down the outer background sections. I did thatquilt's method of piecing & applique. The way that they have you sew four triangles of background together makes a great difference in getting the points to the middle section very pointy... great tip!

    Nancy and Gladys, thank you!

    Here is F-8 Church Window. I still find it so difficult to line up the sections of paper piecing with so many layers of fabric and the paper coming together in one seam. It's hard to keep the seam a straight line, the sections keep tryiing to go 'wonky' on me.

    Oh CindyA I love yours. I really like the colors you picked. And I decided not to worry about wonky. I bet Jane's has more than one flaw! (can I say that?)

    Yep, Sheri you can say that and we recognize that Jane is still our inspiration!!

    I actually love to paper piece and really enjoy it when I dont overdo. Whenever possible, I do try to avoid it because you can end up with a mess.... I think your block looks awesome Cindy - you are your own worst critic I am of my work as well - but the block looks great!! I have it looming before me - maybe today??? got some new shows to watch, but who knows...
    I think I may PP the outer border of that block, but think I will use that bikini method of flying geese and just measure the inner square carefully. [that is where you take the width + 1 1/4" square of background and 4 - height+ 7/8" squares for the star points]

    Gus – I love that fabric in E11, it is a perfect fit. Thanks for the notes on F9, I’m going to refer to them when I get to that block – that block looks fabulous! All of your blocks look great.

    Sheri R – I’m behind too. Now that I’m back into it, I guess that I forgot that each block is quite time consuming! Your blocks and fabrics are great.

    Cindy – I think your F8 looks great! Love the fabrics.

    Anael – great block and appliqué. I love that fabric.

    I just can’t help saying something about everyone’s fabrics!! I love seeing so many lovely fabrics. It must be why scrap quilts are my favorites!

    Got kicked off DSL again.. although it seems to only be this site??? will post instructions and try photos separately...

    OK.... so I've got my hot cup of tea and my bagel is toasting... lets try this again and hope the DSL doesn't go down [I will ctrl-c before adding photos so I don't have to worry!

    Anael - love the block and Gladys - your curved tute is wonderful! Thanks for that

    When I compared Jane's original G-4 block to the sketch and thatquilt.com instructions I realized that they were both lacking Jane's outer background border. I wanted mine to look more like Janes and - like I've said so many times although I do love paper piecing, I don't like removing ALL that paper and you don't need it for this block so long as you measure and sew CAREFULLY

    Note that the size of your center square will determine the amount of border you can have at the outer edge. I measured the finished size of the square at 1/2" which means 1" cut. If you take ever so slightly larger seams than you normally would adding on the first round of triangles, each successive round will end slightly smaller and you will end up with a nice size final border round. What I mean is - where you normally hear 'take a scant 1/4" seam" be a bit more exact or slightly over - as in a thread or two no more.

    First, here are the measurements I used. And the way I added triangles is to first cut two squares the same size and then cut once diagonally... start with your 1" square of background. Your next 'round 1' is cut from your main fabric [Janes is red, mine is green]:

    round 1 = main 1 1/4"squares
    round 2 = background 1 1/2"
    round 3 = main 1 3/4"
    round 4 = background 2"
    round 5 = main 2 1/4"
    round 6 = background 2 3/4"

    To attach the triangles to the sides follow these instructions... attach triangles to two opposite sides making sure your center point lines up with the center of the opposite side. PRESS [dont iron and stretch!] often... First you should press your seam down to set your stitches into the fabric, then while still warm - either with your fingertip or tip of iron, turn the triangle over the seam and press towards the outside away from the center square. The extra pressing initially really allows for a crisper finish so the fabric seam lies flat. With each successive 'round' lay your triangle on top of square centering it so the center tip lines up with a square corner. Flip your pieces over to see exactly how far from the outer edge the tip of the prior square is so you know how far from the edge to sew your seam. This way you ensure that the corners wont be cut off - tis better to have it float in a couple of threads, but try to make it close.

    Tip - I learned a few years back from Sue Garman when she did a BOM for thequiltshow.com that you should avoid sewing on the side that your corners come to. This is easier to understand when you are putting a border on a quilt that is sewn on point. When you sew on the quilt side, your eyes get distracted by the points and you dont sew as straight a line as when you sew on the straight border side. Same hold for short seams - once you determine how wide your seam must be, flip the pieces over again and sew on triangle side - your seams will be straighter and your squares will actually be square! I will first post a couple of photos of this and then get back to the final round instructions....

    For the final border I cut two 2" squares out of main fabric and cut once diagonally. I then cut 1 1/4" strips of background - one 2 3/4" and one 3 3/4" long for each corner, attached them to the triangle short sides and then trimmed even with the long side of the triangle. Finally, I attached these four corners to round 6 of the center.

    Happy sewing! Gus [hope it all made sense] I will also post F12... made the usual wayName:  DJ G4b.JPG
