    Last year on the swap, I did five quilt swaps. I am in two row robins and pretty soon those will be done so I will have two more quilts to assemble. The way jillaine has it set up on the quilts, it is pretty secure and I was an angel for two of them. Was nice getting quilts I would have not made like an applique one that hangs so nicely in my hallway. Whigrose made it for me. It is her avatar. check it out. It is the Mexican Rose and she did the swags herself. Her applique is so awesome. Have her in one of my row robins.

    I will do the current weeks blocks, then do the first week blocks, and so forth. I think that will get me caught up. I see that I have till September to finish it. I think it would be cool if I could finish it and put in the quilt show this fall in October. If not, there is always next year for the shows.

    Thank you for the help. I see that it will be necessary to see your tutes on some of these blocks, as sometimes my math skills just dont jive real good. I do read directions good though.

    That's a good plan, QuilterMomma. And we'll hang out here and help you when we can. Be sure to check out the couple of websites we often get help from -- thatquilt.com and auntreensquilts.com

    Here's Week 70 (I think) -- anyway, the week of May 12:

    Hello beautiful ladies!
    How are all of you?
    I hope that very well and enjoying a beautiful day!
    I was able to complete my 4 blocks of Jane Dear and bring photos to share!
    Are F-5, F-6, F-7 and F-8, all of my own week 28.
    In total it took 73 blocks, 12 triangles and 1838 parts!
    I wish you all have a beautiful weekend!
    A big hug for everyone!

    Gladys, thank you!! I never really left. I've watched all y'all sew on past me as my DJ hid. But I found her again and I'll be around trying to catch up or just keep going! Btw... I love your fabrics. So many pretty colors!! Beautiful blocks!

    Well, I hunkered down again with Jane. I've been itching to get back at her but "stuff" kept getting in the way. But darn it all anyway, I only got one block done. B-11. And it was not fun. The block turned out quite nice actually but I realized I have to get my rhythm back!
    Everyone's blocks are wonderful!

    Hi all -I have been away from here for a while - and now - it is 4.15am and I can't sleep - so thought I would say "hello"
    I am going to my Dear Jane group today - about an hours drive and hope to now measure all the blocks and tri's and and double check the finished sizes - taking into account any that are slightly wrong - that I can adjust when I add the sashing - (probably 1/16th inch'ish) and take out any foundation papers I have left in. Then I want to start adding the sashing. I have made the quilt top for a friends grandchild due in July - need to now get that layered and quilted.
    I just don't know where the time goes.
    It is nice to see some new DJ 'ers here and all the blocks are looking so nice.
    I am going back to bed now - and hope I can catch a few 'zzzzzs !!
    Night night.

I have to tell you it is certainly no easier than Affairs of the Heart if you decide to needleturn! there are some halfsquare triangles and other piecing, but the flowers have some nasty inner corners for turning [my least favorite!]

    An Inner V needleturn....What you need to do with those nasty things is make one sharp precise cut directly into the corner - I do it one thread out. Make your needleturn stitches closer together when you approach the corner "V" then take a stitch going down into your background exactly at the V and come back up somewhat visible a couple of threads beyond the edge of your applique fabric. Whip the thread around the applique and draw it gently up where you came through before. Next tack it down to your background with one more careful stitch and continue up the other side starting with stitches closer together. [I took the opp for a quick needleturn instruction - which I hope makes sense - to lure you into AOTH !!! I need some company when I go back to it LOL!!]

    Hi everyone,
    it's been a very busy (and stressful) week. I miss working on DJ. All the blocks posted are awesome! Feels like we're having a renewed interest here on this thread - nice.


    Monica, thanks for continued encouragement for AOTH. I DO love sewing along with you! I won't rule it out, but I'm sure I won't be able to put any more thought into it until school is out. We are late releasing here (mid- to late June). Things will only get busier for me until I'm on summer break. I don't think I'm familiar with Sue Nickels, I'll have to google and find her. Yes, I hadn't thought about it, but I guess it does remind me of Piece O'Cake!

    I'm getting ready for a quilt friend to visit so I've been busy with the house. I haven't put my sewing things back on the dining room table since having Mother's Day here at my house. Maybe by this evening I can work on a DJ block again. Have a wonderful week everyone.

    CindyA- nice block!

    I've finished four. Three batik and one cotton. I've started A10 and have the reverse appliqué melon finished. I'll finish it when I return from visiting family in Idaho. the batik background is the same neutral color you see in the A12 block. I don't know why pictures are different sometimes.

    some of my friends want to start the dear jane and form a club but not quite sure how to go about this seams like everyone works on a different schedule has anyone done this before and if so can you share ideas how we can make this work. dont want to be pushed but dont want to take forever either we feel like if we have a club we will stick with it more and get it completed any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Hi Linda,

    do you mean a group that meets or an on-line group here on the Quilting Board? The schedule that Monica made for us has worked really well for me personally. I've never completely kept up with the schedule. When I miss blocks or weeks I just jump back into the schedule according to where we are supposed to be. Then if I actually do finish the blocks for that week I'll go back and make up a block I missed from a previous week. But I always start on Sunday with the blocks we're scheduled to be doing that week. She built in 'make-up' weeks which are really nice. This schedule has allowed me to keep going, I've made a lot of progress and I've never felt like it was an impossibly daunting task.

    it will be a group that would meet maybe every 2 weeks and sew together I attended a club one time for this but it did not work because everyone was on a different schedule could not make it work.

    Linda - When I made up the schedule for this I took the suggestions of some who had been in an early DJ group here. The main comments were that they wanted some 'cohesiveness' - to be able to at least roughly see what was coming together - so I worked the schedule going down from Brenda's A through M but focusing heavily on the "EZ" blocks as listed in her software. If you look at the schedule in the first post to this thread the greens are ez and the red the most difficult. For those who have the book some of the sketches will not look like the original blocks. If you have the software, the original blocks will sometimes be found among the 'center block variations.' I also put the triangles throughout the schedule so they wouldn't be daunting at the end.

    I have a friend who is making Jane with a group of women - all at their own rate and all by hand! They are working theirs from the center out and with an around the world scheme in mind. G7, then G6 and G8, F7 and H7; then G5&9, F6 & 8, H6 & 8, E7 and I7. and so forth. It works for them. They are sewing them together in a circle as they go - for me this would be hard because I havent decided how I want to quilt yet, only that whether by hand or machine I will QAYG. This can't be done in a circle fashion!

    Whatever you decide- enjoy it!! and dont let any of it get you overwhelmed You can ask questions here or PM me any time

    I just learned that Brenda Papadakis' husband has passed away. I know that all of us who love her quilt will keep her in our thoughts and prayers.

    Katybob - thanks for letting us know! Oh dear - I will send her an email. I have her phone number and have spoken to her in the past, but I will wait on that one...

    That was a bit of a jolt! almost makes me not want to post anything - but it is thanks to Brenda we have all these patterns... so we owe it to her to finish those Janes!!!

    I looked through the last several weeks of posts - so happy we have a few more chiming in!!! You newbies will see I may have made up the schedule, but I give full permission to slack off now and then
    ...try to do as I say but at least know that you can do as I do hehe

    I owe 14 pictures I think?? made 10 of these last week - none the past few days as our house is in total chaos and being painted. I also spent lots of time filling in my Jane chart that's in the software which I unfortunately cant simply post but I will try to take a picture of it.

    First I should show you two triangles - the ones that are 'not quite Jane' as I mixed up the top of one for the other and then simply decided to just add triangles...
    TR13 - week of last Sept 23! and LS4 week of April 7

Size:  100.7 KBall three of these were a combination of PP and applique. I followed AuntReen on the last one primarily. I paperpieced the bottom right and left side and even attached the center shaft that way [paper-piecing almost up to the point.] I appliqued the rest, making the bottom 'hills' a little taller than the drawing.

    and the last few I made early.... as I wind down to the end I am tending to pick and choose rather than follow my own schedule.... I will try though
    I completed L3 and L4 for June 9, L13 for June 30, and M10 and M12 for next September [mainly because I wanted to put some EZ ones to increase my count]

Size:  55.3 KBI didnt take any pictures while making these - and I found them straightforward piecing - NO paper-piecing. I didnt take a picture of L13 as I made it wrong and will correct it!

    My thoughts and prayers to Brenda and her family at this sad time. I had the honour of meeting Brenda at a Dear Jane group in Tx a few years ago and it was so obvious by the way she spoke of Peter - that he was such a support to her. RIP.

    You're right, Gus - I was a little reluctant to post pictures after learning of Brenda's loss, too, but it's just another way of remembering her and her husband's love and contributions to a huge community of Janiacs. And all of your blocks and triangles are just wonderful - I can't pick out a favorite fabric or block!
