    Beautiful Gladys as usual - !! The last picture showing all the blocks is stunning. The colours are all beginning to blend together so well.

    Gladys, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your E-11! Thanks for posting pictures.

    It seems quiet here, I know I have not had time to sew this week. Getting busy before the holidays. Maybe over the break I can do some.

    My New Year's resolution .... once I actually make it past Christmas ....eeeek - is to not only catch up but to get this baby Jane done for my guild's Sept 2013 show [even though it surely doesnt look like it now!]

    as always, Gladys, your blocks are beautiful - can't wait to see the entire finished piece!

    Nancy -
    the link [post #1866 above]to the corner block is interesting- her block amazing. I have sewn things in rounds before - but to me, it is a series of flying geese and corner blocks and so easily put together in strips. If anyone uses the other method, just be sure to not sew the center into the third round 'hole' the way it is shown. You need to either make another hole or slide the center over.... it is a quarter turn off. Her finished block is absolutely perfect!! I just think the photo in the tute may give some the wrong idea.

    Enjoy the weekend and the holidays...Unfortunately.... I continue to get more behind at this point - but as I said before - the New Year will bring great change!!!!! and greater accomplishments!!!!!

    Hello, DottyD!
    Exactly at heart, the same wishes for you and each of the members of QB and this thread that accepted me as one more among all!
    I suspendí Dear Jane seam to make Christmas gifts, which I not finished all in time, only one.

    Have a blessed holiday!
    A huge and strong hug for each one!

    I hope all have had and continue to enjoy a wonderful, peaceful and healthy Christmas season with family and loved ones.
    No snow here either Dotty! but it is very cold - this week the temp will remain below 55 tops and down to the high 20s and 30s at night - not the usual for So. California but I love it so much more than the heat!!!

    Enjoy! and lets have a happy, healthy and productive 2013!! Cheers!
    Gus

    Here's my Week 49:

    And here's my Civil War DJ put together and basted. It ended up being "nap-size". I try not to point out my mistakes, because I know I'm usually the only one who sees them, but be careful to get the triangles in the right order when you sew them together!

    Katybob...you r incredible!!!! and all caught up with your [second??] DJ - awe inspiring!
    I must also say that to me - I think I see 9x13 DJ blocks in your 'nap size' quilt? I mighty long nap

    I found my DJ book... it had been among the missing meanwhile, my #1 grandson[6] covets his 4yr old brother's twin size quilt a bit even though he has been real sweet about it... he says 'it's ok Gus, I know I'm your monkey' The quilt I made for him for his third birthday is called 'Monkey Business' .....OMG! check out this link:
    http://www.amazon.com/Monkey-Busines.../dp/156477788X
    I didnt have a picture of the quilt with me so I googled the pattern and found it on Amazon... sit down and look at the price! That ought to cover a few college credit units by the time he gets there!

    I actually do think the pic of my quilt is on our guild site... here it is!

    Here's to katybob's progress rubbing off on me!!!

    Nope -- they're all 4 1/2" blocks. The angle of the picture does make them look bigger. Thanks, Dotty, Gus, and Fraew!

    Katybob, you are AMAZING!! That is beautiful and looks so nice on that bed frame. Thanks for the inspiration. You say that it's basted, and I think I see a scallop along the outer border. Tell us what's next, please, in the way of quilting plans.

    @ Dotty, thanks for the Christmas and New Year's message. I agree, we are enriched by being able t come to QB and this thread to share with each other. And yes, let 2013 be the year your Christmas DJ is done!!

    It's probably been weeks since I worked on DJ. There are been a few pretty significant things happening in my home. We got 2 dogs! The 5 yr old Basset/Collie mix is from a co-worker who was having trouble taking care of her. She is so sweet. The 2 yr old is a 65 lb Basset 'lap dog' that a local rescue organization was having trouble placing. And now we know why, LOL. He is a sweetheart, too, but has a few 'issues' that we are working on. All of that, plus Christmas and family and friends, and no DJ. So . . . . the sewing room is now a place for the dogs, it was non-functional and I'm using the dining room table, anyway. I'm a little sad at losing the space, but I wasn't using it anyway, and it was so disorganized. I'm making some tough decisions about what to get rid of from the sewing area, but I'm not using that much space in the dining room for my DJ fabric and supplies. I'll post pics if I ever get my sewing stuff organized and stored properly. I hope to get back to DJ soon. I actually seem to make steady progress when I'm working, rather than when I'm on school breaks. So come the first of the year, maybe I'll post a block!

    Happy New Year, everyone! I hope that 2013 brings you health and happiness.

    P.S. Are any of you printing the blocks onto freezer paper? I've tried several ways and no matter how I do it the freezer paper gets jammed up in my printer.

    Hi Cindy,
    I just trace any block onto FP - just in case it should jam DH's printer !! I would be in trouble if I did that LOL !!

    My printer ate the freezer paper, too, so I ordered a 500-pack of 8-1/2 x 11 freezer paper sheets from C. Jenkins and haven't had a problem with it since. I don't remember what I paid for it, but it wasn't outrageous and I think it's certainly worth whatever it cost. It's here: www.cjenkinscompany.com

    On the scallops, I followed Linda Frantz's advice and stitched the edge of the scallops after the quilt was basted. I've read so much about the quilt over the last couple of years that I don't remember where I ran into her post about the scallops, but I have it bookmarked if you want to read it.

    @ Katybob and Dotty: I just placed an order, Katybob. I hope it works for me as well. If not, I'll just keep tracy, Dotty!

    Also, I'm about to order some silk batting from Richland Silk co. I bought a sample of their silk batting many years ago at a quilt show. It's true what 'they' say, it's like quilting butter. I have a top I finished a while ago. It's a Tennessee Waltz (alternating 58-40 or Fight and Snowball blocks) that I'm going to hand quilt. It is expensive batting, but I don't hand quilt very often, so it's worth it to me. I believe the last quilt that I hand quilted (and finished!) was when my 16 1/2 yr old son was an infant. So I think I'll invest in a silk batt every 15 or 20 yrs.

    I'm following this Dear Jane thread and saw the post about silk batting. I ran across some on sale at Fabric Depot.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    Hi there, I joined QB just in time for midnight 2012 mainly because of this Dear Jane forum. I've read the entire thing and just love the warmth and support let alone the knowledge and advice. I plan to start my quilt this weekend but feel a bit paralyzed by the beautiful work you guys have put up. It has also taken me ages to decide the background fabric. I've ordered a cream solid but I am probably still making up my mind. I guess most of you don't want to rehash what you worked out a year ago but I just wanted to say how much I think this is a wonderful resource. my New Years Day is drawing to an end as most of yours is just beginning. Hope yours is relaxing, fun and peace filled!
