    Love your blocks, Cindy. I especially like the blue fabrics you've been using. I've been tempted to start the blue and cream DJ block-of-the-month offered by Stitchin' Heaven just because I love blue so much. Expensive, but I've probably spent at least that much over the years collecting fabric for my current DJ. Speaking of blocks that go together quickly, I jumped ahead yesterday and started RS-3. It's not really difficult, but very time-consuming and I just noticed I reversed my background and focal fabrics in the center and it's going to stay that way!

    Here are my blocks for the week of June 9:

I want to go queen sized and don't know how much to enlarge.
    You can get a program called bootcamp from Apple store. Once installed, you can then allocate a portion of your hard drive from your Mac to be PC. I have that on my laptop Mac. So all my programs that can only go on a PC are on that computer. Check out your apple store.

    I don't know what you want the finished size to be for your queen size bed? I always go to this site...
    http://www.amishcountrylanes.com/Pages/QuiltSize.shtml
    They have a great interactive calendar that allows you to add drop sizes, headboards, etc. Ex. for a queen 'coverlet' with the following specs this is what they recommend... 86" wide by 105" long -- 13" drop, 12" tuck [pillow tuck I imagine]. The original Jane finishes around 81-82" square. I would almost suggest simply increasing the sashing size somewhat. If you increase from 1/2" to 1" you would already end up with a 89" square. This way you wouldnt have to mess around with all of the measurements. You could further enlarge the quilt by enlarging the scallop width and possibly enlarging the final sashing around the central block section. Just a few suggestions. I know I wouldnt want to adjust everything!

    Dakota - those are amazing!! [lots of quilts from Netherlands ...my birthplace didnt know quilting was popular there - which reminds me - where is Anael?]
    I've got to ask you ladies - how do you get those feedback scores? suppose I could look it up - does that mean you sell on the site or do swaps?
    I've strayed from Jane once again... [feedback score = -100]

    Feedback scores are usually for buying, selling or trading. I gave you a +1 as thread hostess!

    LOL I'm right here Haven't done any Jane blocks in a very long time but started again yesterday! Life got in the way big time! My DS and DDIL had twins 14 weeks early on January 20th, they came home May 27th, doing great!!

    I didn't know you were born here! Where? Or did you tell and I forgot? My brain isn't what it used to be

    Den Haag, Anael - and I do know we talked about it before...tried to look back through my postings but noticed lots of them have been eliminated from my profile... so gotta rely on memory ?? seems like you lived near one of my many cousins near Deventer or Rotterdam maybe??
    Congrats on the twins!! Happy they are home - are they the ones in your avatar?

    Monica, I'm living in the eastern part of the Netherlands, near Deventer (about a half hours drive from here). Now I remember we talked about it before My late hubby was born in Den Haag.

    Yes, the twins are the ones in my avatar. Bram is still on oxigen and has to be admitted to hospital again to see if he can do without. His lung tissue is badly damaged from being on the ventilator a very long time and a fungus infection in his lungs. Isa had to have surgery twice since she was born but is doing great now

    You were up late, Anael!! It is both very scarey and amazing how these babies are able to grow and most often thrive after being born so very young...God bless you all! My daughter and I watched "Private Practice" dvds last night - the last season one of the main characters had delivered one of her triplets at 26wks - I thought of you - also 14wk early and so very tiny...[and in the end they are all fine]
    I see from your avatar they have a boy and girl . I can certainly understand why DJ is on hold. Are they near Deventer as well? My cousins live on Grote Ratelaar... Ed Stehmann was controller in the hospital's sterilization dept until he retired about 8 or so years ago [of equipment, not people! I always thought it to be a weird name]

    I will attach a picture of our three grandsons...

    Lovely grandsons you have!!

    My DDIL was expecting triplets too but Julian (identical twin with Bram) died on December 12th. He was born on January 20th also and was layed to rest on May 25th, the day Bram and Isa were home for the very first time on weekend leave. Life has been hard but we still have the twins and we're very grateful for that.
    They're living in the next town, about 10 minutes away from here.

    Anael, your grandchildren are beautiful! I'm sure these last several months have been frightening and stressful for you and your family and I'm so glad they're doing well now. And, Gus, your grandsons look like real sweeties (and just a little mischievious!).

    Here are the blocks for the week of June 16:

    Thank you katybob! Yes it was frightening and stressful. We've just started to try and get back to a normal life.

    Your blocks are great! I just looked over all my blocks and I can see I did make some bad fabric choices on some of the early ones.

    Gladys, your blocks are beautiful as they all are

    Beautiful gransdons, Monica!! And glad your test came back ok.

    Precious babies, Anael. Glad life is getting back to normal for your family and glad the precious babies are home.

    Love the blocks Katybob and Gladys!! They look great.

    Here is my L-4 St. George's Cross. Pitiful, I think I'm really rusty. Anyone else sewing on a Featherweight? Can I blame it on the machine?? It's not really hour-glass shaped, it's just not lying flat for the picture. But it isn't straight and I left out one of the white strips, not sure how I managed to do that.?. Think I'm looking at a re-do for this one, but it did feel good to sit down and sew again.

    Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

    I had trouble lining up L-4, too, Cindy, and L-6, which is similar to L-4, was even trickier. I did a lot of ripping on that one.

    Oh my -- I do have to get back to working on my DJ -- I haven't done a thing on it for months -- and this is the first time I have read the board either. Time has a way of slipping by and I have been busy with other projects
