Absolutely gorgeous, Anael!!!! [I'm glad someone posted this weeks!] Gladys - how did you do your design wall?? did you import your blocks into the DJ CD-ROM??

Fraew - I too decided to make my B-11 more like the original.

For those wanting different instructions for B-11:
I started with a 3/8" finished square for the center and added 3/8" [cut at 1" wide and then cut down] background strips for each side. I cut [2] 2 1/4" squares in half diagonally and sewed them to either side of two other background strips, making sure the narrow strips finished at 3/8". Then I sewed the center square together: triangle-strip-triangle .... strip-square-strip ....triangle-strip-triangle. I trimmed the square down to measure 2 3/4" and then sewed another 1" wide background strip to each side. I cut [2] 3 1/2" background squares once diagonally for the corners. Next - I actually enlarged the picture of the original block in the book 250% to get the right curve for the outer curvy pieces and drew that centered on the long side [hypotenuse] of each of the background triangle corners and then trimmed a generous 1/4" out of the inside for the seam and clipped carefully to the line. I cut [4] 3" x 1 1/2" pieces of focus fabric and basted them centered behind the corners and reverse appliqued them. Last I attached the finished triangles to the outside of the center square.

Here are the last two rows... well, not including this weeks!!! check out Anaels


dj-wks-9-10.jpgI laid out all the blocks I have finished so far and realize I should re-arrange them when I finally put them together to make the colors 'flow' more [they don't do it at all now!!!]djpt1.jpgdjpt3.jpgdjpt2.jpgThe following is my second re-do of B-9. I didn't reverse sew or remake the whole thing. It took me three tries to realize the reason my outermost corners were not fitting was because I was sewing them to the wrong part of the square . When I finally got that.... I moved them over to form a square with the lighter background!dj-b9b.jpg

Oh my y'all are producing such beautiful blocks. Me, I'm just getting farther behind. I'm in charge of a study group this week for finals in a class I'm taking...Yes, finals...Me, at age 50... I'll catch up with you ladies, I promise!!! I have a lot of pre-sewing finished, just not much time to SIT...and sew... But I miss all y'all!!

Cre8tvlwyr, I have some of the exact DJ fabric you have, and I love how you're using it. I'm taking notes!!!

Got your back Gus
I'm online only a limited amount of time. I purchased a new house on Friday and am personally remodeling it. I keep saying I'm not doing this again, yet, here I go again The good news is that I'll have a dedicated 200sf quilting studio . It will be some time before I get caught up, but I WILL catch up.
Everyone is doing terrific on their blocks. I just love seeing all the beautiful looks with the use of different fabrics.

All of your blocks are looking so good ladies! Brings back lots of memories of when our first group was working on them. Keep up the great work and you will feel so good when you're all finished!!
