    I couldn't wait Patti, sorry.

    BLC has 71 pieces and you start in the center with the small star and work your way out. It's not bad but the center has some really small pieces.

    TLC is very easy if you follow 'That quilt' tutes. Goes together very slick. Was my favorite one to do.

    Don't apologize to me Jan! Those are gorgeous kites!

    Here are mine...

    I agree- just take a deep breath and go slow on BLC, its not hard, just start in the middle and work outwards. I printed the entire block, marked it and cut it apart, then pp'd the entire block. The bow tie looking designs on the outside edges were changed on mine a little bit as I redrew the lines so that I could pp it easier.

    TLC was easy. I did mine using the English PP. I had never done it before and enjoyed doing it.

    Beautiful Meredith, youīve done it, well done everyone.

    Now get quilting. are you all going to QAYG or join them all up and SOMEHOW do it on a machine. Has anyone got a longarm? Now that would be a bonus to do that baby on.

    I think Meredith said she has a LA and is going to do hers on that (lucky girl)...


    I had to laugh at your pic of the pile of trimmings Meredith...it looks soooooo familiar!!

    Elle, Yes, I do have a Queen Quilter by Tin Lizzie, but I am very inexperienced as I have been focused on this quilt top, for a year!!! I need to practice practice practice before I tackle this one. So, it will be around the scheduled time before I am finished, but Stargazer Jane will be layed out in my sewing area, in full view to keep me motivated to finish her! I am not tired of looking at her either.

    Patti, I thought the trimmings looked so funny, so much, for such a small little star, and all the effort to get there!!! :D I am happy with that tri, although did you notice the bottom tiny appliqued box is slightly off center? I think I may decide to love as it is! :lol:

    Elle, I counted 71 pieces for me! It is the small end, it has three pieces, seamed on two sides.

    My experience tells me once the quilt is finished and (cold water) washed and tumbled in the dyer, removed slightly damp, to finish air/drying, all those tiny imperfections generally disappear... :lol: That is why I love quilting! The finished result is always wonderful. :D

    Got to be ver honesT I am scared to death of washing my Jane. Do you use a liquid soap? Any help on this will be gratly appreciated.

    71 pieces WOW for one little block. I must count mine and see what my total is because mine will be different to all of yours, although I will have to count all my applique pieces wonīt I

    I do use liquid soap, but only about 1/4 the amount suggested in a cold water wash, then I use a gentle cycle and cold water rinse-twice. If it had a dirty spot, I would spot clean. There are packets or sheets, they call color catchers, you toss in the washer, and although I have not used them, I am going to buy some for this quilt! I tumble my quilts in the dryer but remove slightly damp and hang or drap across 2-3 chairs and allow them to finish air drying.

    During the construction of this quilt, I have sprayed water, and ironed every piece, front and back, so I don't know if that helps set the color...but I am curious to know if the heat and water does aid setting the color???

    Generally, I do not prewash my fabrics, unless I am swapping. I prefer to work with new fabrics, as I like the way they feel...:)

    BTW, I have a large capacity front load washer and dryer.

    Thanks for that info, donīt know if my washer will take this quilt, now hadnīt thought of that and I donīt think I have ever seen colour catchers here in spain, might have to get some of the internet.

    Feeling pleased with myself though I have redone 4 blocks I was not happy with, I found those really hard first time around. they definately went quicker this time, seem to have learned a lot from making this quilt.

    Meredith...LOL! I don't see a thing!! I think I had either 66 or 77 pieces in that one...a ton of little teeny ones. Once you get it sewn in, I promise...you won't remember it! You are lucky to have the Tin Lizzie...someday when i have room, I'll look into getting something other than my domestic machine. I really don't mind quilting on it though.

    Elle....you are going stong girl! Now that you are back on it and done with the fan, it will go even faster!

    Your final kites look so nice Meredith. I also counted 71 pieces on that one. You are one lucky lady to have a Tin Lizzie. I started quilting my blocks tonight. They go pretty fast.

    Well done Patti, sorry you have a sick machine, hate having to be without mine to, although now I have a back up machine, really old but it works in times of need.

    Good luck with the quilting Janstar.

    Elle, I would be more than "happy with it"...I'd be jumping up and down! Asian Jane is looking gorgeous! I can't wait to see more rows!

    I tell you guys, when I tell people that I am working on my Jane and what stage it is in, they look at me like I was nuts to have even started. I have been so happy with each milestone on this quilt though! Each step makes me so excited and I am more in love with the quilt with every step that gets completed...Do you feel that way??
