    tymeToShine. Will be thinking about you on Thursday when I go to work at my hospital and hope that all goes well with your surgery.

    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    Thanks for all the prayers. The cardio lab showed all arteries are clear, but one of the chambers of the heart is not functioning correctly so a cardiac MRI has been scheduled in 2 weeks with continued restricted activity until then. Got my EPP blocks by me to work on during this time. Meanwhile, the firewood cutting and splitting, square foot garden installations, and the painting of the third bedroom continue to remain on hold. And climbing the stairs to the sewing room. Glad I planned ahead and collected the EPP project. :-)

    Ahhhhhh, TymeToShine, you're a good girl following orders & smart to plan ahead.
    I've not been able to make any blocks lately & on the 15th my friend & I are headed to Lancaster, PA. So no sewing while away but I'll sure be shopping!!!!
    Great blocks everyone!

    Hello Ladies!
    Fraew ... I love your blocks! And I admire you for redoing some blocks! Congratulations!

    Hello everyone!
    I continue forward with my 3 week blocks.
    Today I can show my 18 week with D-4, D-5 and D-6 blocks.
    I hope you like those and thanks for looking!
    I am not very happy with D-6 colors. Find it me "strong". At the end if reach me fabrics, I think that I will change. For the time being is so it is not so bad on the design wall. You who feel about?
    Have a beautiful weekend!
    A big hug!

    Awesome blocks Gladys!!
    Linda - Glad part one of your exam went well - we will continue to hold you in our prayers for the duration! I had to read your post a second time because I read it as 'you are cutting & splitting wood' -- no no ...just my eyes needed to read all words I guess. Be sure to listen and be well. are you doing DJ blocks with EPP or another project?? curiosity has got me

    Gladys, you do such a nice job on your blocks. I like to colors in the one you were questioning but like you said, you can wait until you get all the blocks done and look at it again to make sure you are happy with it.
    Gus, I do do some of the DJ blocks with EPP, but the ones I have downstairs with me right now are blocks I am making to put into panels in the doors to a cabinet my DH made me for my sewing room.

    Gus – thanks so much for the tute on G4. I’ll sure use that when I get to that block. You sure do make some nice looking blocks!
    Anael – your E13 looks great even without the diamonds.
    Katybob – such pretty blocks! I love how subtle G4 and F5 are.
    Gladys – as always, your blocks are just beautiful! I have one in my group this time that I might want to re-do too. I too will wait to see how it looks once it is in with all of the other blocks.
    Fraew – your re-do’s are wonderful. My stripes in B1 are going the wrong way too I think but I’ll just leave it. I’m a little dyslexic anyway! What are you doing with blocks that are getting replaced?
    TymeToShine – you are in my thoughts and I hope all is well. I look forward to seeing more of your blocks once you can get back in that sewing room!

    Here are three weeks of blocks. I have a lot of catching up to do. Holy Cow these are tough! You all set a high bar for me to try to reach!!!! It seemed like for each seam I sewed I was ripping out the next one to re-do. Tough, tough, tough. Fun though!

    Week 6 – TR-1 and TR-3

    Week 9 – A-2, A-4, and B-11 – I don’t care too much for the B-11 combination of fabrics I chose, the orange and blue seems kind of dark. I might end up making a new block once I see how it looks when all of the blocks are finished.

    you ladies are doing a beautiful job on your blocks. and i luv the unique fabrics and colors you are choosing. i am just sooooooo awful with colors. i guess, that's why i did a CW reproduction. let the manufactur choose my fabric and colors for me. such nice ovals, circles, Y seams. points. great job everyone. ohhhh, and i am doing another jane also. was thinking about making 5" blocks, and just added a 1/4 " around the edges. make that extra 1/2 in per block, makes the quilt 6 inches bigger, and etc. etc. decided i am just going to cut them all down, and make the normal 4.5 in blocks.

    Wow, Judy! Fantastic blocks! I'd forgotten you're making two also. I especially like the fabric in A-9, but they're all wonderful.

    Thank you for the compliments and encouragement. I know I'm insane for redoing but this is an insane project. Right?

    I have taken some of the blocks apart and changed fabrics for the redos...this is easy to do for the ones that i English Paper pieced. The ones that I don't use for this, I have no idea.

    Very nice blocks Fraew, Judy, Katybob and thanks for the G4 tutorial Gus - I do like the outer border you added ! I am going to start H2 today ! One of the girls in our Dear Jane group is over in the US to visit the Bennington Museum at the moment ! I would love to be with her to see the "Mother" Quilt - maybe one day !

    Here's Week 39 -- a good week for me. Lots of paperpiecing, which I really like, and appliques that aren't so frustratingly small. I go back to F-9 every now and then and still haven't done a decent enough job on those teeny tiny melons to call it done.

    Hi, I've just ordered the DJ cd and am waiting for it to arrive. I have the book and have made three blocks. I've also started a small DJ group and we meet once a month. I would love to join this forum. How do Ido this please?
