    Hello Gashgoldvermilion - you will love it here - I do !!
    I have been doing my Christmas Baby Jane since May 2007 and I am determined to finish her this year !! This thread has spurred me on so much - I have found the timetable has made me do blocks that I had previously put off doing because I felt them too hard. In many cases they are not perfect - but hey, they are done -
    Happy New Year everyone and here is wishig you all a healthy and peaceful 2013.

    Always love seeing a new face around here - so glad you are joining us Gashgoldvermilion!!!

    Don't know how much patchwork/applique you have under your belt - my suggestion, after you decide what fabrics you will be using, is to get kickstarted with some easy blocks. When you go to the first post, they are the ones in green. I took the difficulty level directly from Brenda's software. There are advantages to the software and to the book. The software allows you to adjust the sizes of the blocks you want to print out and move the blocks around on a computer screen. It also has templates of each block that can be printed. On the other hand you can enlarge [decrease???? heavens no] any block on a copier from the book as well.

    Be sure to check out the links in the first post - get ready to drool over the quilting on the DJ done in Kaffe Fassett fabrics at the greenfairyblogsite if you havent already. Unfortunately Sharon Mastbrook's DJ design wall is no longer available. She had developed a program to place your own blocks on a computer design wall. Check out Gladys' and Dottys [oops ...not Dotty is it???]. You can get some ideas from our DJ friends at this site as well.

    I've been among the missing over the last several weeks - have only popped in off and on but will correct that as I am ramping up again.

    Jane Stickle's quilt has various level of difficulty blocks spread out all over the place, so you can certainly jump in at our place in the schedule and see pointers as we hit those blocks. I will get my sheet out and repost the 'post numbers' at the upper right of each post where you will find helpful tutorials for some of the blocks [if I finish before the next person post this one should be #1905.]

    Some of us have noticed that the book and the thatquilt.com blogsite - both of which are invaluable, sometimes don't look exactly like the original. Some of us have just gone with the instructions, some have decided to change the pattern to make it look more like Jane and not use the instructions.

    How do you get to the right post number easily???
    If you are new to this site - you should first become familiar with your general settings. I think the default for number of posts per page is 10. Mine is set for 20, which makes this page number 96! Some members have theirs set for 40. At 20 per page, page 95 includes post#s 1881-1900. At 10 posts per page this post will be found on page 190. To find out what page to go for the post you are looking for divide the post# by the number of posts per page.... 1905/20 = 95.25 ..then round up so go to page 96. To change the number of posts per page:
    1. click on "settings" in the dark bar at the very top right of any page
    2. look at the bar down the left side and scroll down to "general settings" and click ...found under 'my account' under' my settings'
    3. on the right side you will see many places to make adjustments - when you scroll about half way down the page to thread display options, one of the adjustments you can make is to number of posts per page
    4. after you have made whatever changes you want, be sure to go down to "SAVE CHANGES" at the bottom

    well... Happy New Year ladies
    gotta walk doggy ..it is 10:36am in Agoura Hills, CA and the temp is 39 degrees!!! Not complaining as I hate the heat!
    it is incredible - was supposed to snow two nights ago, but the precipitation halted so - white ice on roofs is all we got

    Take care!! stay healthy one and all

    Haha!! Gladys that is so funny - I have relatives in your hemisphere [Australia] and have to remind myself when it is very cold some days that half the world experiences a totally different temperature and season
    I myself have always preferred the winter cooler months [there's only so much you can take off!]
    However, as I continue to age...... ahem.... the bones and joints do not enjoy the real cold temps
    mind over matter I tell myself! Off to finish another quilt and then DJ it is

    Enjoy the last couple of days of R&R... catch up??

    R&R means rest and relaxation such as I feel when I have a break from going to work every day.

    I tried inserting the Civil War fabric pics that I have saved in Word, but couldn't upload them. I'll keep fiddling with it.

    Thanks Gus!

    My new avatar is an OLD UFO. The round center is pieced and a took a picture of it to work on borders. I printed it on paper. I also printed trial fabrics and blocks on paper. A little cutting, taping, and voila...a plan to finish that UFO. I made it my avatar so that I would feel guilty and get it done.

    Maybe I should just cut and paste all of my quilts from here on out??? Much faster.

    i haven't really been following along with you all. made a jane with the lst batch, and i even chit chatted here and told you what size to cut the sashings between the blocks. and around the inside blocks. had it all written down. and now i am down to that on my 2nd jane, and do you think i can remember, or find where i put them? No, been half way looking for days. so if anyone knows off the top of their heads again. would you please tell me.? i still have 3 sides of my tri's to do.
    i found where we were talking about it. and i told everyone to use l.5" sashings. and i do believe that is what i used in my first jane, with 4.5 " blocks. but the jane site says to cut 1" sashings. wonder why the lst ones worked so nice? any comments?

    Hi, sewNso -- Good to hear from you! This thread's been really quiet the last few weeks, but we're still plugging away. Just finished Week 52. I used 1" sashings, finished at 1/2". I'm pretty sure that's the size in the original quilt.
