Wendy, hi!! Nice to see you here, welcome. We're still here though not all of us are still working on Sylvia.
I finished mine a few years ago though she's still waiting to be quilted I started a second one, didn't feel like finishing, combined the finished blocks with finished blocks of the Farmer's Wife quilt and made a Sylvia the Farmer's Bride quilt LOL.

I would love to see your DJ!

Here's mine, so far. I miscounted, I've actually made 11. Since I took the project out to photograph it, I might work on it a bit today. I've been working on three applique quilts lately and I'm kind of "appliqued" out. A bit of piecing sounds like fun!

Welcome, Wendy. I too finished mine earlier this year, and it is currently being exhibited in our regional fair. NZquilter - I love your color choice! That is going to be a very striking quilt.

Here it is! I love seeing so few empty spaces.

This is great! How on earth did you do this? Does it require a special program? Things sure have changed in 20 years since I worked most of my Dear Jane.


Oh, that's mine! No, it's just done in Excel. It was an interesting way to keep track of blocks. Then as I hand quilted each block, I did the reverse and deleted the picture from the spreadsheet so I could keep track of how much more I had to do.

I kept track of mine in Excel too. Very handy

NZ, most of the time I am not such a fan of the red, white and blue combination but I like yours!

NZ.....love your blocks!! I absolutely love that you made some blocks with only one fabric. That is a creative idea and will really help balance your colorway. The maple leaf is gorgeous! I'm so excited about your SBS. It's going to rock...

Thanks for the warm welcome.

The printer finally stopped. LOL I found the PDF of the blocks online and have printed it out. Book should be here next week, fabric next or the following. I ordered 12 yards of Kona black. Now I need a box. :-)

DJ is here.

I have the fabric triangles all cut out and half(?) of them done. It's a good thing I'm so far along as DH got overzealous in cleaning and toss my box of repro's just in the last 6 months or so. What a waste and it's impossible to replace as I'd swapped for ages to get a good mix and what folks sell as repro's today, well they aren't my DJ repros. I got enough bland stuff though that I should be able to finish now.

Really glad I made this journal as I have all the dates and some entries which make it super fun to look back on.

I tried to work on it recently (got really sick in the last 20 years FMS, DDD and SLE along with some others) so that my brains and hands don't always act in sink. I ripped the same seam so many times I thought I'd weakened the fab too much. I'm going to finish this though cause Sylvi is calling. Must start a journal for her, hummm there's plenty of room in the DJ book I think I'll add her in here. Fun! Glad your all still here as I know me, I need the human touch to get my git along into gear.

Wow your DJ is beautiful. So sorry your hubby tossed the beautiful fabrics. I used my DJ also as a journal. With Sylvia I wrote the date I finished the block in the register, no journal though.

Beautiful DJ, Wendy!! how exciting that you are almost done and getting ready to start SBS. Black background should be a dramatic effect. Your hubbie should not be allowed in your sewing room. lol!! What a stinker!
