    Officially starting my Dear Jane tonight. So much for waiting until later this fall. Apparantly my impulsive side is taking over, lol! I did hold off, antsy, for a whole two weeks before going ahead and taking the plunge- so I guess that's an improvement! ;) Oh, and as for color- I guess I've decided to go scrappy, since that's the budget I have for now.

    For better or for worse- Dear Jane, here I come! :D

    When I read your title I thought maybe you were going on a fantastic vacation or had won a trip to some exotic island *L* I guess making the DJ quilt is as much fun and won't cost much if you are shopping from your stash..Happy Stitchin' crafty_linda_b

    Good luck. I did 250 of the blocks and couldn't stand it any more, I quit and through the blocks away. Never been happier

    Only took me 4 1/2 hours, but-- I survived my first Dear Jane block!!

    I'm too naive (stupid?) to be intimidated by Jane, so I decided to take an aggressive approach with the order I do the blocks. In my infinite wisdom, I decided to start with the hardest blocks first and work my way down to the easiest. Get the rough stuff out of the way, then enjoy the easy part when the enthusiasm might otherwise be flagging, right? Right??

    In all my reading, the one block in particular that kept popping up as the scary one was G6. So, by golly, you know which block I'm going to start with! The center star is wonky, but, well, what is it they say? Finished is better than perfect? I'M sure not doing it over! :-D

    Oh I think it'll be great! I'm doing scrappy for my DJ too. My goal is to have every block and triangle a different fabric! I started a year ago and have 71 blocks done and 4 triangles.

    I have been doing the Dear Jane for over a year. I use purple white, pinks and some greens and most of it is from scrappy.
