    I have been thinking a lot about the various projects for next year and nervous about DJ; have the disk and book but still very unsure about it, feel a little lost. Anyone else feel like this or it is just me? Looks like a lot to tackle.

    Must put in the 50 stars disk and try it also and see what it is going to be like.

    New refrigerator is working so nicely; keeping everything so cool, amazing. It has LED lights in it, ice and water available on the outside of it. Now I can drink cold water and enjoy it. Slow repairman made it back to 'fix' the old one Friday evening, late, and found out he had the wrong part that would not fit where it should. Then he seen the new one and he was not a happy camper. As I told his wife, we had to do something to have dependable refrigeration. So the old one is still not fixed eight days later...and the soap opera continues. Made Sweet Potato Biscuits yesterday and they were not too bad for the first time that I made them.

    Anael, hope you are feeling better today. Thinking of you.

    DublB ... just thinking ... what about using tissue paper? That's what was recommended to me at the sewing machine dealer as a basic tear away stabilizer. Instead of soluble there is a tear away that can be purchased as well.

    QNSue ... good to see you are following the Dr's instructions.

    GrannyQ ... you definitely are in my thoughts and prayers!! I hope you have some family and friends that are near for support to both you and your husband. And that your Dr. is keeping a good eye on you. So much for you to deal with right now. {{{HUGS}}}

    Dreary, rainy, miserable day ... though warm'ish at 12C now, and high of 16 expected. I was on the road pretty much all day yesterday and by the time I got home, just nestled in, ate supper, read the paper and watched a bit of TV. So for today, I just can't think of anything better to do, than to sit and sew!!!

    Hope everyone has a good day of doing things that each of you WANT to do!

    QE- I too thought tissue paper would be a grand idea & woa one o' my first experiments & it won't hold up long enough ta git the blocks done. I experiment on.

    Everybody - I have a report about my experiment & then a question or poll. First don't I repeat don't use Tear & Wash for the grid method. I had ta swab the needle every inch & a half. Boy that took a long time! Then it took me 2 hours ta tear that stuff off. I may stop experimentin' & just go w/Aqua Mesh if I want a water soluble grid. Second I realized, when I was through, that I had misplaced 1 HST. I was sick! The center design was all wrong. Then as I got up ta git a drink I looked at it turned on point & it had a religious design! So here is my question; Would an on point block mess up your plan for your MB's & are ya religious. I wouldn't want ta up-set some one who didn't want a religious block. I'll ask all o' ya'll & hopefully my November partner will chime in & I'll know whether ta send it ta her or make myself a wall hangin' & make her another block.

    DublB ... if you are having hesitations, I think you would be better to set the block aside and keep it for something for yourself.

    A hint to check your placement in the future... do a photo before it's too late.
    Then look at it in the camera display, or upload it to your computer screen and minimize it.
    Our eyes tend to see the flaws/misplacements when it is down to a smaller size.

    Prayers and good vibes being sent to all of you who are having health issues--Anne, Anael, Carrie, and Mr & MrsGrannyQ and any one else not doing well.

    QNS, like you, I've looked at the DJ software and book a couple of times. I'm kind of intimidated by it--not sure I can navigate it easily, too many steps to get from one part to another. But I'm determined to master it!!! I'm not going to commit to doing a certain number of blocks per week or month but will work at my own pace (which may be "none") during times I don't have other things promised. I am going to finish the 50 Stars, I have 12 or 15 done. That CD is so simple to print the patterns from and her patterns fit well together. I just have trouble with her color descriptions: can't tell light from medium from dark in the pics. But I just figure out my own colors anyway.

    Look at this awesome MB I got from QuiltE!! She added my favorite color and kept her theme of "Friendship" with the Friendship Stars. I love it--thank you, QuiltE.Name:  MBQuilt E.jpg

    GrannyQ, So sorry to hear about DH not doing well...Hope you're not overdoing anything to keep yourself from staying strong..
    Anael, hope you're doing okay too!...

    Dublb, I don't have a problem with the religious aspect in a block...

    I have a fairly new neighbor that I approached about the internet and as you can see I'm online..She won't accept anything but If I slip an envelope with some $$ in it under her door when she's not home..I'm hoping she will accept it...

    Our Village Stitchers group is making a quilt for an event in March or April and I'm making 2 blocks for it..will post a photo later...The event is called "Relay for Life"....several of the women in the Village are running in this event and the quilt is to be a fund raiser for Cancer Research...

    DH and I joined the local library and I found a quiltin book that has a pretty Christmas wall haning in it..the patterns are in a folded paper that is attached to the book...can I remove the pattern paper and then tape it back after using it??? How else would I be able to use the patterns???

    As far as using tissue paper for stabilizer....no, no, no, it's way too thin and it tears too easy...the tissue paper inches up underneath and causes the fabric to wrinkle...I know 'cause it happened to me..I even tried telephone pages without much luck..that's not to say it won't work for anyone else..it's just my experience I'm talking about...an added thought..using a walking foot might help with tissue paper.

    QNS...I was just talking to DH about new projects with our group and he makes fun of me...asking me if Dear Jane was like a "Dear John"!!!!

    I have to finish the second block and do some final touches on my MB for _ _ _ _ _ ... see you all later today...

    Praying for GrannyQ, GQ DH and Aneal today.

    QNS--I too have been thinking about the DJ and 50 Stars quilts...if I end up having surgery in December it will be a while before I can start on either. I have figured out the EQ DJ cd and have printed several of the pp'ing patterns...it took a little doing, but once I got it, it was pretty easy. I worked through the lessons in the book that came with the cd and it was a big help. For the 50 Stars I am thinking about getting the Foundation Factory download so I can print them at 10" instead of 12".

    Dublb--sorry I can't be any help with the stabilizer. I wouldn't mind religious designs.

    Jan and QE--that's a very nice block. Can we see them all together??

    I spent a little time in the clubhouse yesterday...might get out there a bit before archery practice this afternoon.

    I have been checking in now and again to keep up with everyone's goings on. Hope you felt me in the group hugs.
    Another one goes out to Carrie, GrannyQ and family, Anael, Honchey, and DD. Isn't it amazing how we can communicate across the world and reach out to those who are in need of support and comfort? And waiting in the wings is QNS as she contemplates the beauty of patience.

    Jan-QE perfect block to share!

    Honchey what colors are you using in the Relay for Life quilt? So nice of you to share your talents in this group effort.
    In regards to the pattern in the library book-take out the patterns. When you are finished, glue a small manilla sized envelope marked with "Pattern pieces" in the back so pattern pieces can be used by the next library patron and stay with the book in an orderly fashion. Library books are to be used. The library staff won't know the difference will they?

    "Sigh" mirabelle. So pretty.

    GGal your synopsis of the postings have been great! I nodded my head in agreement until the "do it with grace" comment as I missed the last stair step and spilled my hot chocolate all over the floor last night. It sounds like you've been really busy getting fall yard work finished as well as a dwindling WIP/UFO pile

    dudlb-great suggestion regarding unpacking from QE! No suggestions for your stabllizer dilemma.

    Jeanie your kitchen looks fantastic! What a treat to come back to after your great getaway.

    Water, water everywhere. Glad you heard the water before it flooded everything, Jan.

    Day 3 of Jury Duty starts on Monday and think we should wrap things up after lunch. My hexi project was a great thing to take along. Met a couple of new quilters while waiting for judge on the first day. Such a great conversation starter. The weather here has been great for November and wished I could be like GGal and spend a couple of days outside. Now it's rainy and cooler. Before the day is over I have bills to pay. Yesterday had 4 of the kiddos here while "mom" and DGS went to a BB tournament. Boys felt pretty good as it was their first outing and got to the championship round, but lost that game. A really bright spot yesterday when mailman delivered a door prize from the Art tour--a beautiful hand knit, homespun wool scarf. Oh sooo soft--perfect to wear under my coat this winter! (My non art sister, BIL, and I went to a couple of the art tour sites.)

    So off to get ready for another work day here and a civic duty day tomorrow. Have the Jelly roll bag up and waiting to watch. Thanks!

    My friend who used to run a quilt shop uses paper towels under the cloth to embroidery and stabilize the cloth. Don;t know if that will work or not for you , Dublb.

    Honchey, talk with the librarian about the issue of copying your pattern; they should be able to help you out there and get the pattern. I have helped many people in my 37 years in the library. And have been helped by the library staff here on coping off patterns.

    I looked at the 50 stars CD, and it talked about the 'why' of design and color; did not see any patterns to copy, but interested, Carrie, in how you plan to 'size' yours up to 10 inches...would love to 'copy' your idea (even if I need to purchase something, and do likewise if that is alright with you. DJs CD also talks about the quilt and process and its hard to find any pattern on that CD. I think I will depend upon Quilting on the Square BOM monthly to give me the pattern and ideas on how they proceed with it each month for 2 years...hoping I can adjust the size there. 'cause both of them scare me a bit. Like I am in over my head feeling.

    My printer is not printing the patterns true to size from Quilterscache.com or anyone else's pattern. It used too. Downloaded Chrome, and it did not work either, so I am back on Fox Fire. Cannot see anywhere that the settings are wrong on the printer info. Page Preview I have to 'tone' back to 60% to print from QB, then back it off to 100%. If I set it forward to 150%, then some patterns fit to the inch. Still working on that problem.

    QNS--I've had some issues with quilterscache patterns not printing to size too. It takes many times to print sometimes!! Here is a program where you can print the 50 Stars blocks...you can either download it or buy the cd: http://www.quiltpro.com/page/Foundat...0_Fab_Mainpage You can choose any size. I am pretty sure Mirabelle said she was planning on doing 10" blocks as well.

    Same thoughts here QNS! I KNOW I'm not doing 6" blocks again! I have not thought of fabric or anything, so think if I start this one it will be scrappy. I'll get a basic, probably solid, background fabric. I really like the Moda Bella Solids, and Thousand of Bolts have them for $4.95 a yard (a real plus). I am like you I have the 50 PP Stars book, but have not done much with it either. Carrie thanks for the link to the computer program for 50 Stars. I printed the page so I can download it later, if I do the Stars!

    Jan and QuiltE - beautiful block!

    I paid and downloaded the foundation cd and looking at it. I can manage my way through the blocks, printing the blocks and printing the pattern for each state. The lines, however, do not print out very black, and not a broad line at all. must ask them tomorrow if I can change that. Not all 1/4 seam line prints out on copy as near as I can tell. No way to print out templates or pp pattern. block print gives you the block only...no sew allowances. after using eq7 on FWQ, it looks like it never passed kindergarten. my opinion only. help. does it? am i wrong?

    Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Try, try again.

    Is everyone in the midwest ok after all those nasty tornados???
    I finally uploaded the photos of the blocks for the Relay for Life quilt...The colors we're using are the Village Colors. teal, burnished gold & off white.. I made a log cabin and a block called Crowning Glory from Quilterscache. I hope the girls bring the rest of the blocks...I'll take a photo of them together...The Christmas Wreath is by Georgia Bonesteele and the last photo is of another project I started...I just love the MSQC Tutorials!!!

    Re: 50 stars...What does the CD have on it??? if I remember there aren't any patterns on it...They are in the book and they need to be copied???
    About the DJ..does anyone know the names of some of the blocks used??? I'd like to draw them up or find them in EQ7 or Blockbase...I have 9 of them made from years ago...I'd like to challenge myself into doing a couple more...I do have the book somewhere in the attic...I'm not doing any steps if I don't have to....

    Good morning! I start my new one day per week schedule today. I'll be working Mondays only--I HOPE!!!! The big wind storm missed us last night, just very heavy rain. Hope everyone is all right and safe.

    The CD with the 50 Stars book is just instructional--colors, cutting. You have to copy the actual patterns from the book. I copied them at work and kept them at 12". If you have access to a copier that re-sizes you can print them at any size. I should have taken the book to be spiral bound but after cracking the spine, it lays flat and everything copied fine. I quit using Quilterscache patterns because I could never get them the correct size. As for DJ, I wanted to make a few block patterns, but this senior blonde couldn't find the patterns on the CD. I have to go back to the beginning of the book and do the lessons I guess LOL.

    Have a great day, everyone. Do something you love.

    I signed up for the Yahoo Group of Carol Doak. There you can download all templates/PDF files for the 50 stars.

    The Dear Jane programm has to be installed on your computer. When you've done that you can print all the blocks in all sizes you want.

    Jan, lovely block! I love the colours QuiltE used

    GrannyQ, you and your family are in my thoughts. Big (((HUGS)))
    And (((HUGS))) also for Carrie, QNS, Honchey and everyone else who needs a hug

    I'm doing ok now, no fever, it's still painful but not as much as last week so I can move around better and now I can try and build up some strength before surgery.

    Anael, what a sweet picture to see as I wake up this morning. Adorable. Sending all of them hugs which you can deliver when you feel up to it...they can only gain interest...so you can add to the hugs.

    Yes, fifty stars are in the book and I may have to take it apart so it lays flat enough to copy. No good copy places here in the middle of nowhere. I may talk to the foundation people today for suggestions. DJ has it on the CD if you are smart enough to figure things out but very thin lines and hard to see. The book can be purchased through various sources or borrowed from the library.

    I had a password with the google site for FWSQ, but have not remembered what I did with it...not real happy about keeping up with passwords and security everywhere I go..realize its the real world of today...but not happy about that aspect of today's society. Always seems to work against you more than for you. Another day, the sun is shinning outside, no tornadoes here....although this place and its history says it happened once...took the hen house off the property. Have a good one.

    MidWestern PC'ers ... please check in!! ... We all need to know you are safe and sound.

    About midnight the winds got up here with some rain. It was pretty fast and furious, and started to wonder if I should stay in bed? or do something? Hydro went off/on/a few times .... I don't know how long it was off, as I went to sleep but I don't think too long, as the temp in my home was still reasonable this morning when I woke up and the furnace was not on. I am sure there are lots of trees down, with the force of what was going on. This morning it is still pretty windy, but nothing like last night ... more blasts of wind every so often.


    JanRN ... Aww shucks!!! I was hoping the turquoise would be pretty much the same as the one that JanieW used. (hhmmmm both Canucks picked up on the turquoise! ) And tried to pick up on the ying-yang look of some of the other blocks you already have.

    Honchey ...
    And now you have me laughing at the DJ!!!!!!!!! Yeaaaaa for the new neighbour's kindness!! If not the $$, or a gift card, I bet some home baking would be welcomed! Library dilemma ... ITA with OKSGlad, to glue a large envelope inside the back cover, then slide the pattern into it for those that follow. Back is better than the front, as it will stay protected better, being that the back cover gets opened/moved less. Good for you, for helping to organize the RFL quilt fundraiser and I really like the fabric choices. I'm thinking the greens in the Crowning Glory were distributed along with the rust in the log cabin. After that, add your own? My oh My, you have been productive!!! Look forward to seeing your Christmas Wreath done too.

    Tissue Paper Stabilizer Update ... I didn't see Honchey's post about the tissue paper, so blindly used it last night. I did have the dual-freed engaged, which does the job of the walking foot. All went well and avoided the gathering that I had been getting in my test run on Friday night. The paper stayed together, and then I just pulled it off, once I was finished sewing. I was doing a fairly wide satin stitch for an overlay of one fabric on the other.

    JaniacManiacs ... I'm still in and with the same strategy as JanRN ... no deadlines, when I feel like it, sometimes productivity, sometimes nada!! I have yet to install the CD, so will look to all for instructions/advice when I get to that stage! And I still need to find my background fabric.

    OKSGlad ... hope that your hot chocolate tumble did not result in a sprained ankle. Oh what a mess to clean up! Hope that your Jury Duty is done and over today ... and that there;s no chance of a 2nd?

    JanRN ... Happy Work Day!!! And let's hope for the one day routine continues.

    Anael ... so good to know you are feeling a little more comfortable. What a grand picture of the SewGrands, to end my viewing on this thread!

    QNSue ... for your password dilemma ... I have a small address book to keep track of those miscellaneous passwords, names, security questions, etc. I keep it right next to the computer for reference.

    Yep, QuiltE, I keep a diary of passwords with the computer and a quick look on two pages of most frequently used ones, but one page is missing now...no sign of it anywhere. It was a yahoo group not google group I referred to earlier.

    Shame on you who suggested tearing out pages in a book belonging to the library! Get the librarian's permission, first. It was lend to you on your honor to return it in the same condition as when you borrowed it. My MIL taught our girls to tear pages out of a catalog when they were young, Grrrrrr, they were too young to know the difference between the catalog and a book. Of course, college kids would use a wet string in the margin of the book and tear out what they wanted in expensive reference books, etc., as if they were the only ones to ever need that info. You have the privilege of borrowing the public item; respect others and their rights please!! Now off my soap box and I will take my nickel with me, 'cause it was more than two cents worth on the soap box sounding off!

    QNSue ... I believe that Honchey said that the pattern was not "in" the book, rather attached. Thus not requiring destruction of the book. ... I was visualizing the books where the pattern is set in at the back cover of the book, not quite loose.

    I was thinking the patterns were posted on a fold up sheet in the back of the book like the quilting magazines do their patterns for the issue. Simple matter to ASK and I believe they will say 'yes' detach and copy and put the sheet back in with a note so the library can put it in an envelope or glue it back in the book. Good training for the younger set to use with respect to others. Everyone is on the same page, so to speak, that way.

    Ok here too. Lots of limbs down and some minor roof repair needed is all. The power was off for several hours. It was only a small inconvience .
    Honchey...love your blocks! It's fun to have a IRL group to work with.
    JanRN....another beauty to add to your MBs. I hope that your schedule doesn't get interrupted again
    Anael...soooo glad to see you! I pray continued strength as you get ready for surgery. Those DGC of yours are adorable.
    OK...well at least you weren't crying over spilt milk. I hope Ilean didn't think it was cause for another visit.
    Dubib..it sounds like yours is a labor of love.
    Carrie...glad you are safe as well.
    QNS...I have a password book too. Most sites will reset it if you still have the user name.
    GrannyQ...I can't imagine your life right now. Take some time for yourself and find those that can hold you in their arms when needed.
    DJ has not gotten to the top level in my bucket list and I'm going to pass on this one. I'm pretty good at cheerleader though. I have plans for a Eleanor Burns BOM at the LQS and a quilt along with the A4A group both beginning in January. By then I hope to have Bonnie Hunter's latest mystery quilt close to the flimsy stage and the SYE will be down to the last few months. I think I've mentioned before that I wanted to do a Baltimore Album type quilt and I just found an online quilt along I want to do. I might not get past the wall hanging size but I want to try. I can see already that some of the participants are accomplished at the skill and I know I will learn a lot.

    Wow, lots of chatter this morning! So glad everyone is OK after those awful tornados.

    I also have a little book that I put my Internet address/password into. I picked it up at Barnes and Noble. It is very sturdy and has alphabet tabs.

    Anael - such a cute photo of the SewGrands! The babies are really getting big, and look so happy. Also, thank you for the Yahoo Group information for DJ. I'll have to look into that, if I decide to do that quilt. I really like sampler quilts! I hope you will be feeling better, and built up your strength for your upcoming surgery.
