    I am behind already!

    I love seeing all of the blocks. They are all wonderful and I come out here everyday hoping there will be more posted. Here are my Week 1 blocks. These three are for a Trip Around The World style using muslin.

    Pics of 2nd set of Blocks - Week 1

    I LOVE sandpat's Chocolate quilt and so I am making one like that also. Blocks for this quilt will have no muslin in them.

    These type of situations make me want to hold onto our older computers forever. I want to be sure my favorite programs are still usable, including DJ and Quilted Diamonds. I wonder if these will ever be updated to a newer platform?

    All of the blocks that everyone has posted are beautiful. I don't know how to post a picture. Maybe my daughter will be able to show me. When I saw the blocks that were posted by Mim it reminded that I wanted everyone to make sure your melons don't run into your seam line. I have done several blocks with melons and I am going to have to do them all over because I did'nt think about being careful not to go out too far. I had cut my blocks a little larger than needed to be due to applique can take up some of the material. Just a FYI. Mim I love your blue blocks.

    Wow! I am glad we don't have to pick a favorite as everyone has BEAUTIFUL blocks...and the stitching looks awesome... I am concerned that I have signed up for something way out of my league... I don't even understand the computer talk and feel a bit overwhelmed...Maybe tomorrow I can get caught up on my Just Takes 2 and open my DJ software....and TRY to see what I can accomplish....if too much, I can always get a little more experience under my belt and come back to it....right? But ALL your blocks look awesome!!

    I read that Jane did not use the same fabric in 2 blocks. All 277 (if you count the plain fabric triangles) blocks are in different fabrics.
    Is anyone here using different fabric for each block?

    I am trying to use totally different fabrics in my "practice block" quilt. My "real" quilt will have repeats.

    I am trying to use all different fabrics, including the triangles. That was why I had to do a design wall with all the pieces of fabric, to be sure that I didn't duplicate one. And if I do, so what!! I am having fun with it, and look forward to each new block as a new adventure. Enjoy making your quilt and keep posting pictures, everyone.

    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    Could you picture taking 225 bolts to the cutting counter and asking for 1/4 yd of each?!

    As I was positioning my melons I measured to make sure the ends would come to the sew line. I didn't want to lose any points. Same as when I make flying geese. It irritates me when I lose a point. But then I think that in the overall scheme, no one is going to see if I lost a point. Galloping horses, anyone???? LOL

    [QUOTE=Bettia;4912743]Is anyone here using different fabric for each block?

    I'm doing an Around the World color pattern too and all my main colors will be different in each block. I'll reuse background though but not many times per print. I have all my fabs color cordinated in a big container and as I use one I move it to a new container. It's working for me

    Hope everyone is having fun with their blocks! Here are mine including one from last week I forgot to post! Sorry for the terrible lighting, I really need to find a way to set up a photo taking space.

    Very nice blocks Kallie! I especially like the fussy cutting details on C1. Good job. I may have to copy that idea since I haven't done week two's blocks yet- LOL :-)

    I'm so mad I could spit!!! :-( :-( I just finished A1 which really confused me until I went to That Quilt and found out that Brenda had made a mirror image in her book. I finished it and was cutting it to size. My DH -- and he is really the most loving darling -- BUT -- he came in and brought me a cup of coffee and I cut one side 1/4 inch short.

    The good news is that it was a row so it will be fairly easy to remove the row and do it over. It would have been a bess if it had been a side instead of a row.

    Tomorrow will be a better day. Mim

    Thanks Judy! Go right ahead and steal away! It was really fun fussy cutting stripes and seeing what they could do!

    Oh no Mim! I hope tomorrow goes better and that you are able to redo that dratted row nice and quick!

    Mim, sorry you cut your block tooo short. i learned, like you prob did, as soon as the hubby sits beside the machine, i laid down whatever i was doing. he started saying, "go ahead, i want to watch, and talk". I told him i was painting with material, i couldn't go ahead, while he was talking about 'business, bills, kids, the world, etc, and expected replies."
    for sure, i would cut or snip, or sew wrong, if i was doing anything else.

    on another note, i'm scared, i need to do my scallops. i've been reading everything i can find on them. did practice ones, and didn't like them. i realized why, i didn't add the l/4 inc around the edge of the scallop, so each point between was deeper. which made a little fold of material. need to practice some more, before i am happy with them.

    Is anyone thinking about redrafting some blocks? Some have that little border around the edge, and I'm contemplating sizing things up enough to eliminate it. For example BR1, it would be easy to extend the interior seams to the edge. But on the other hand that little strip eliminates exterior bias. Thoughts?

    I'm using Kaffe Fassett fabrics / around the world so I can often get a couple of blocks out of one piece of fabric because the fabric has areas of solids that are different colors. So the blocks look different even if they are out of the same chunk of fabric. That way it doesn't look like I have any repeats. Oof, that was one of the most confusing sentences I've ever written! I hope it makes sense.

    On a related note, I've collected more than 50 pieces of Kaffe fabric and I shudder to think what I've spent on this quilt so far - fabric, software, rulers, freezer paper, Aurifil thread, etc. I even bought a new iron. I'm just ignoring the cost. In for a penny, in for a pound on this project.

    Hmmmm....interesting. I don't know if I am thinking right but I think it would be okay to eliminate the little strip if you are doing paper piecing and leave the paper on until that BR1 block it is sewn to the other blocks on all three sides. -Judy

    Have you checked to see if there are "plug-ins" ... I'm not exactly sure what they are other than something you can frequently download from a site that produces software that acts as an adapter to either update or adjust the way your system reads a program. Don't know if I am explaining it correctly. My daughter had a game she loved to play on her PC which is only available compatible with older versions of her Mac, which she doesn't have. Someone told her about plugins - she downloaded and now can use the program without a problem.
