    Welcome gailkv!!
    We love to see new Janiacs - you are always welcome If you go to the very first post you will find our schedule. I made it 'beginner heavy' for the first few weeks, although I have trickled in more difficult ones. I also tried to go row-by-row although the blocks within the row may not be in order because when I asked some of the members who started their DJ with the 2010 group they indicated some dropped off because the blocks were too scattered. It seems to be working. The DJ software has a list of beginner, intermediate, and advanced blocks/triangles. I made the beginners green and advanced red on the schedule, so if you want to get a few more done initially, you can certainly start with the green ones! Just let us know if you need any tips. [re=reading what I wrote...dk if it even makes sense? I think I b tired
    When I get more coherent I will type in the list of posts that have tips on them again gailkv

    my Bernina 440 is acting badly once again....ahem .... every time I quilt with it. I feel like driving it to Bernina [because you certainly can't speak to anyone there on the phone] and throwing it through their front window.
    oh well...
    have a great sewing day. I may get back to it although I'm leaving town for a few days. Still 4 triangles behind - actually 2 blocks and 5 triangles this week
    Gus

    That sure is quick! Install the software on your computer and off you go Just ask when you're having problems.
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    Well I can manage to print off the patterns in my software but the other functions are going to take a while to work out. So far I'm loving it.

    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!.
    Thank's, JudyTheSewer! I hope too.
    I love your blocks but your triangles are so so beautiful!
    Congrats!
    A big hug!

    Hi Katybob!
    Love blocks, triangles and fabrics! Congrats!

    Hello everyone!
    I hope that all are very good health and happy!
    Not I participate much this week because I was... playing! Hahahaha!
    It is that we buy a new dressoir for our home.
    In my EQ7 designed a way to protect the lacquered wood and was a week stitching it.
    Today I have class so I am about to leave, but I posted a separate thread asking for help and advice to make the quilting on it.
    Show them a picture and I give you a big hug!

    Question for those that do EPP. Block B-9 has so many Y seams that I decided to do EPP. I love the precision that happened. I used silk thread to piece it (which is what I use when appliqueing). What thread do you use? If you use cotton, would you be concerned that the silk would deteriorate faster than the cotton? Thanks in advance for your advice. :-)

    It's been a busy couple of weeks and I've missed stopping in here. Finally able to look in tonight and, as always, I'm loving all the blocks! Thanks for the nice treat, ladies. I just returned from a short trip, but at least this time I had time to prepare and take some applique blocks with me. I should be able to trim them and post pics this weekend.

    Judy, WOW! You sure have been busy! All the bloocks look fantastic. I really like your B-11. It looks more like pink and blue on my screen rather than orange.

    On the EPP, I have used both the silk and a cotton thread. I am eager to hear the answer to your question from those who have been doing EPP longer than I.

    Gail k v WELCOME to the group. Glad to have more joining in the fun.

    Katy Bob. Beautiful blocks and I continue to be amazed at how you are keeping up with the schedule and doing 2 at once to boot!

    I just can't seem to navigate around this website. I'm trying to find where it has each week of blocks that I can click on. I've gone to page 1 which takes me to this page but that's not what I want... Help an old lady get started please.

    I have tried lots of things for EPP...I had a problem with the thread shredding. This year, I tried Superior threads 60wt Bottom Line Polyester. I bought the "Super Bobs Donut" so it has a large variety of colors on prewound bobbins. They go everywhere I go! I LOVE this stuff!!! It hides about the same as silk (for me anyway) but I like the heavier feel of it. And...not a single shrewder thread!

    BTW - I also tried silk this year (YLI #100) for appliqué. It hides fantastically but I think I selected my thread too thin...I don't like the feel of its thinness. I tried the Bottom Line for applique and LOVE the results there too!

    What weight silk are using for EPP? I didn't try mine for EPP again because it felt too thin for me to hold on to to work fast.

    Thanks for the reply Fraew. I use Gutermann thread that I buy at JoAnns. The spool doesn't say what weight it is so I did a search just now and all of the Gutermann silk thread is saying 30W. I think the reason I'm wondering about it being durable is that in old crazy quilts the silk fabrics seem to deteriorate faster than the cottons. However, that may be because of the chemicals used in those fabrics rather than the silk itself. If cotton is truly significantly more durable then I think I would rather use cotton on this labor of love quilt. But, I DO like the results of the silk thread! Thanks for your help.
