    FYI, There are 2 "Flower all Around" pdf's...one is for the flower hexie just as it is and there is a version 2 which is the triangle which becomes the 16" block....Just thought you would like to know...
    The Hexie printout seems to be much larger than what it is supposed to be...When you say 2 1/2" hexie how is it supposed to be measured??? point to point or from the flat sides? All these years I never paid attention to that...

    QNS, How do you get to the Michele Foster site? I'm always trying to look for different blocks....

    I don't agree with Jane being similar to Sylvia or FWS. I made about 90 Jane blocks and they're quite different from everything I did. Yes, some are similar but most aren't.

    With the software you can print in any size you want. The finished Jane size is 4.5".

    QE--good news...if you go to the blue DJ quilt link again, you can click on each block and see a close up. I just noticed you could do that.

    Here is another blue one: http://les3a.no-ip.com/spindletops/ (same thing you can click on the blocks)

    This is where I am finding these quilts: http://www.janiac.com/

    I am willing to make the 1st QOTS block next week...to "test" it. I need to see if I like the fabrics I have once they are cut up/sewn together.

    There are different 'projects' listed on the disk...circle of friends caught my eye...and every house should have a dj...a house side with a dj block on the front of the house. That peaked my interest as well...everyone choose a block and it goes on my pc house block...what do you think?

    Yes the official size is a finished four inches, but with EQ7 you can make 'selected' blocks and print them out as any size, even a 12 or 18 inch block.

    I hope, Honchey, you got my email. http://quiltinggallery.com/learning-...y-quilt-along/ For the overall template of all the blocks and patterns free for block one, two, and three. She posts every Thursday. Michele is an amazing person who answers her email...with over 500 people involved wonder how many emails she receives in a day??? Missouri Star Quilts is listed as one of the recognized outlets of fabric for the blocks. Me, I am using my stash.

    I am happy to go along with whatever is decided, DD might join us for DJ as she has already started it, she was also going to join us if we did the Compass Blocks, I gave her my folder with all the patterns already printed out. I would just really like this group to continue, we may have others join us and that's ok but this merry little group has certainly bonded over the past few years.

    After the carpets dried I spent a few hours tidying up my sewing room, so now I am ready to finish some projects and maybe start a few new ones

    Honchey ... Hexie measurements are taken for the flat side. However, many get confused too, so I double check when a size is mentioned. For the QOTS blocks 14"x16", it doesn't apply, as the measurement they give is the finished block, with the wing triangles added to give the finished rectangle.

    QNSue ... Michelle Foster is not QOTS. MF is the Aim for Accuracy quilt that GGal is doing. Also, that the original DJs finish at 4-1/2".

    CarrieM ... thanks for the tip and extra links. Am starting to bookmark DJ stuff and will add those, for when I hae more time to look at them "seriously". Great that you can "test" the pattern for us!

    OKSGlad ... yes! *shock*!!! I totally understand as I know there were so many other great things to see and do!!!!

    MiraB ... I'm like you ... I love our cozy little family and do not want to part!!

    Gee, thanks, QuiltE. Wonder how I wandered off...MF does look like fun. Aim for Accuracy...So which one are we doing or some of us may do, Honchey? Must be a link from the the page that sent me on the journey onward...

    well, I don't think there should be a separate thread for the DJ that several of you want to do...There definitely is one that is very current and is very like our thread here...the only difference is that they have stayed with DJ exclusively....I don't see a problem with any doing it here within our group...The same for the QOTS new rectangular blocks...We all show the different projects that we're working on so this would be more of the same but now with 2 different themes + the MB's...If you want we could have a separate thread for the QOTS...less confusion and it would be open to members here on the Board and keep the DJ and our MB's within this thread....Let me know what you think by email please...
    Give me an idea of when you want to start either of the "new trips" ..

    Last week we had alot of rain and all the wires & cables are underground ...the torrential rain last night filled the ditches and it looks like I have a creek by the road in front of the house...I was told this could be a factor as to why my neighbor lost her internet...when that happens I can't get online...so if you don'thear from me you'll know why...

    I have 2 votes so far for a new thread for the QOTS blocks....being there are 6 sections to this one block...I think one a month is the way to go...please let me know how you feel about that....I know that most of you have other projects in the works...and...soon enough the holidays will be upon us...

    Thanks to everyone for helping me out one more time; seems that I can confuse myself and everyone around me, specially since I am on meds. Two more days of it and I am done taking the meds.

    Frankly, I am with the majority on our next road we take; have patterns, willing to travel. This group has really taught me a lot, and I have enjoyed the journey. I did send a private email.

    Mirabelle, found out the patterns were saved, so have a full house of the set. Thanks.

    so far we have an agreement on the next "trip" which will be the QOTS "Flowers all Around" blocks..... 2 a month seems to be the way to go with this...
    The DJ will be kept in the background of this thread and you'll show your blocks as you get them done...no scheduling of blocks....I may even get back into it... I think September would be a good time to bring the DJ into our "campfire"....

    We do have to decide when to start the QOTS "Flower"....There are 4 block patterns on the site so far...so let me know when you want to start it...I do have to get approval from Patrice. and we do need to start the new thread at least a month before the "Kickoff"...

    Honchey--2 a month and when do we start? Since there are only 4 out so far are we going to wait until more are available before starting?

    Carriem, we will have a another thread for the new "trip"..it will be open to all who want to come along with us...I have to wait for Patrice for approval.. The "kick off" should be a month after the new thread is posted to give all time to gather what they need for the journey....We, as a group, have not yet decided when that will be...need more discussion about it... we will continue here with what we are doing now...adding the DJ as a background filler for those who want to do it....

    Because it's a BOM we could do 2 a month till we're caught up?
    Meaning when we start in September do the September block and the first one posted? That would be 5 months 2 blocks a month and after that 1 a month.

    That sounds doable Anael! So glad you are going to join us for this one, we missed your beautiful blocks in our last endeavor!

    Remember we have the MB through February, I believe. Please anyone jump in and correct me if I am wrong. Plus everyone gets very busy with families in last of November and December. With 12 flowers in the BOM, and 4 posted, should be eight more to go to be posted at a later date. Thanks, Honchey, I was on the right site and blocks.

    I found it interesting that QotS also features a Dear Jane BOM that runs 24 months for $24.95 monthly with a start up cost of $25.00; they offer 8 to 10 blocks a month and furnish fabric and patterns and tips. Officially, each square is four and one half inches, although with the disk you could print them out any size.

    When we start in September 5 QOTS blocks will have been posted already. July was the 4th block. We could always decide to do 1 in December and start again with 2 blocks in January.
