    Here are my week 2's blocks. It is so nice to be caught up on two of my projects since I am so far behind on others

    Good idea.

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.
    I have about 50 different fabrics a well. I don't know exactly what I am going to do yet. I love the Kaffe line of fabrics.
    All of the blocks are so beautiful with their own personalities.
    I still can't get my printer to print. I just bought it. I may have to have "the geek squad" come out. I have only done week one so far. I am having to draw the patterns by hand.

    I kept my old tower HP -- It is windows XP and integrates with an older printer at the cottage. It scans my travel pix from the 90s and early 2000s. I have thousands to sort over and I will never get back to most of the places I've gone to. I have some very expensive photography programs on it and can't afford to get the updated versions. So I manipulate the pix on it and then put them on disc to transfer to the new laptop.

    Sort of like the older fridges -- they weren't elegant but they never died either.

    I corrected A1 but I'm not satisfied -- some of the points don't exactly match. Easier to do it over than to be irritated when I glance at it. It will be in an obvious spot and I intend to use my DJ on the bed here in Olympia.

    Is there a pattern to be able to make A-1 the way Jane made it?

    If you print out the PP pattern and then turn it over on a window you can trace the lines and then it will be the way it looks in Janes quilt. I may do that for my second try at it. I found it confusing if I looked at the pix.

    GV09, I really like your blocks. Its so surprising seeing how adding one more color makes the block pop so much more! Great job!

    For A1 go to options for pp piecing and check mirror. Preview to make sure your block size did not change.

    Lightbulb Pam,s Jane Blocks

    I'm a bit behind, but will post what I did this week, what slowed me up was thinking I'd do a "Trip around the world Jane", after coloring everything and digging through the stash, it's just going to be scrappy - so many misc. fabrics in my stash I just want to use up on Jane and a Spiderweb.
    The fabrics are a bit brighter in life than what's showing up on the .jpg's.
    The idea of the fabric swatches on the design wall is great, and seeing the Jane image that was already getting sashing and rows sewn together is very helpful to keep me going on this project....

    I agree. That's what's great about sharing the pics... you can see if you like it [an idea] without cutting and sewing it yourself

    I am going to post my week 3 blocks tonight, because I am really busy next week, so here they are. These are blocks A1, A5, and B1. Sure have been loving all the blocks that are posted. Great job, everyone. I do get a little wonky on the blocks, but I am learning. LOL

    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.

    Oh Mim! I am right there with you! I spritzed mine with a little water to press it. The paper was still on it and a little of the ink ran onto my white. UGH!!! I tried washing it out.....I don't know.... I left it for now and went on to another block. I also didn't realized that it is a mirror image so mine spins backwards. I am a lefty and I sometimes spin backwards according to my right handed family. So maybe it fits me
    Tomorrow will be a better day here too!

    Hi, I am not only wanting to have the block 'spin' as Jane's original did, but I would also like to duplicate her "wonky" look. I think Jane did that on purpose; similar to how F-1 is drafted. Is anyone aware of a pattern for this? If not, I think I will draft my own.
