    DD--do a search for "Dear Jane Quilts" on a search engine and you will see lots of samples...some red/white, some blue/white, etc, etc.

    Groovy Pieces it will be wonderful to have you along on another of our super journeys I am almost wishing January was here but then wanting to finish some stuff and start the New Year with fresh projects so better get my butt into gear

    Carriem I found your Florentine fabric on line and purchased some or maybe a lot and have decided that I will use that for Sylvia's Bridal Sampler with maybe 6 tone on tones. After making two big quilts with lots of fabric I want one with a bit more structure to it.
    Just have to decide what I am going to use for the 50 Stars quilt.

    Gotta dash DH wants my help and I want to hide out in my sewing room
    Chat later

    No one has commented here and its pushed the discussion way down the list. The blocks are all beautiful. I love one the greatest, then the next one pops up and its beautiful and the greatest two...I love how some post the two blocks together and they match so well!

    I think I know how I what to do number two block, but back to re-organizing the sewing room again and trying to find the book for the Bernina 550 one more time. Gee, I just checked about the bobbin and put it close to the machine, but its location eludes me... How can I lose things right where I am sitting and never moved from there???

    Must be Murphy's Law.

    Dear Jane In The Tropics BOM starting in Jan 2014. Have any of you been involved with a BOM of this magnitude? I love the colors, but the best part - it can be paper pieced ! ! ! !

    After calculating the 2 year run, that quilt would cost $647.80 . That is literally the price of my 3 day/4 night retreat, which includes spending money & the Saturday Night Banquet.

    Any & all suggestions would be appreciated, thanks in advance . . . GP
    I have looked and can't find the Dear Jane in the Tropics. Can you give me a link? I have done a Dear Jane, finished except cutting my scallops and binding. I did mine scrappy; favorite fabrics. Not sure I'd make another one, but like to see everyone else's. Would definitely buy the software if I were making another one. Did lots of paper piecing on mine.

    Sue Z Q: go to Quilting On The Square & click BOM. The Tropical Jane is the blue background with jewel tones.

    I'll be along for the DJ ride as well. I've got the software and have been playing around with it.

    For those of you considering wether or not to buy the software .....

    The software is pared down version of Electric Quilt (EQ). By pared down I mean that it will only let you work on the DJ quilt, it will not let you create a new quilt. But you can do everything with the DJ quilt that you can do in regular EQ.

    Try out different color schemes
    Want to make different layout ... perhaps on point ... you can do that in DJEQ
    Print the patterns for PP
    Calculate the yardage needed for each of the colors you are using
    Don't like the order the blocks are arranged? Move them around
    Like the concept but 4" blocks scare you .. make them bigger
    You really don't like block B13 ... change it

    And more

    I've been playing with both color schemes and layouts. Thinking of doing a medallion of DJ blocks in the center, then a bunch of negative space, then a border. Who knows. I keep playing!!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I mentioned the other day that I found some fabric to use on my DJ (the quilt using the squares). It is a Benartex Fabric. http://www.benartex.com/index.php?pa...c=2&idp=15900& The line is "Left Bank". I got the Calico Stripe Pink/Orange and Calico Stripe Sage/Purple...click on the pictures to see the whole stripe. Each fabric is 4" wide. I will be looking for a background to use...I am thinking a light tan. The other quilt using the triangles will be just 2-3 fabrics.

    I too have been playing around with the DJ EQ program...learning new things.

    So one fabric has all those different prints on it each of them 4" wide?? That's pretty cool!! I wonder if they run WOF or LOF.

    DHM--LOF. I just bought a yard of each for now. I am sure I can make lots of blocks out of just these fabrics (plus a background)...IMO better than a FQ bundle.

    Thanks Carriem, just as well I don't work in a quilt shop I would be broke, I have 4 LQS in the nearest city, one just specialises in Asian fabrics, another I don't even go there as all her fabric starts at $32 per metre (don't fall off your chair) another one specialises is shabby chic, pretty fabric BUT limiting !!! and the other one has country themed fabric. We also have a large chain store a bit like JoAnn's I think, it is called Spotlight but there fabric is yuck yuck yuck so when I see lovely fabric I buy it, I will share it with DD too.

    Fabric and blocks posted are thee BEST. Love to see how each are doing each block, and the color preferences. They all are so balanced and lovely.

    Finally finished Block 2, this one fought me all the way. I did not like the big center spot with the yellow print so I added another color on the point to balance the red above.
