    Ok I can't start for a few more days but your pics are so pretty it's made me excited all over again. I'd love to see a pic of someone's who has done the embroidery. Has anyone? Please show us!!!

    Dori, your blocks are beautiful! After sewing 2 Dear Jane blocks I found out I did them wrong but I didn't correct them. It's my quilt and my blocks and as long as I like them it's ok with me. With one of the JT2 blocks (#1) I didn't use the templates but used my DJ software so the block is different. We're creative

    When you're making the schoolhouse block use the freezer paper or starch the fabric! I didn't and had a hard time matching the points, specially the rooftop and the chimney. Had to rip three times before it was right!

    Good luck LOL though block 8 is ready as I heard
    On to block 9! I didn't do that one yet. I ordered more background fabric but didn't have to go out of the house for that. Just phoned the store and they sent it off today so I hope it will be here tomorrow. I don't have that much WIP's, most of them are BOM's (4), a Dear Jane, a Sylvia Bridal Samper, the Pony club sampler and as far as I know 2 other wip's. So no hurry here!

    You're welcome on the schoolhouse. I hate ripping too but sometimes you have those days

    Tutt: i LOVE the black and white. That will be gorgeous when completed. So many combos are having me think about starting a second quilt in another colorway.

    So far I have two blocks done from the second January release. Just got home form the hair salon, so if I clean really quickly, I might get another block cut before Grandma brings the kids home. Who am I kidding? Cut first, clean second. Hurry, hurry.

    Wow, I love the black and white. I'm also considering another color combo. Just can't decide which color yet. Working on block 9 now.

    I love your black and white. I still have some black left from a quilt I made last year but I don't think I will make another black and white soon!

    No, its black but it is on a cream background so it doesn't pop as much as the black and white does. I like the calming effect it give... was kind of worried before I started but am very pleased now

    Pretty blocks stitchinluvr, I'm just now finishing up block 10, I've never used freezer paper so I'm doing fusible web applique, all thats left is to applique the fan blades. Then on to block 11, I'm really dreading this one, I have to figure out a simplier way to make it. Good thing I have 11 days until the next set of blocks come out LOL.

    Well just finished block 11. After reading the directions several times I decided to make the freezer paper templates, I guess the purpose of freezer paper is to make the pieces stiffer when sewing. However, my problem was the "y seams" I think that's what their called, never had done those before either, they turned out ok but if I had known what I was doing they would not have puckered I'm sure.
    I need to find a visual tutorial for y seams. Glad I had a new experience (freezer paper and y seams)that's why I join these groups to learn new things.

    Also under the assembly directions #3 I think the letters should be F and G, not B and F.
    Can't wait for Feb 1st to get the new set of blocks!!
