    I know ya'll will think I'm crazy, but I tried another one last night to be included on the baby quilt. This is the goofy part...the one I did wasn't even one of mine!! It was F9...I think that Blue did it..and I really liked it. It turned out really good...now I need to fill 1 more 5" hole for this quilt...I think I'll try another one (maybe even one that I'm gonna do for the swap) :roll:

    I ordered some more fabric yesterday for the swap. Can't wait for it to get here to show you!

    I like the gold on gold better - I think it makes the block stand out more

    I like the tone on tone.. I think the other one is too busy and takes away from the second fabric. Just my 2 cents

    I've been sewing like a mad chicken.... and have 8 blocks completed plus the rest cut out and half pieced (all the flying geese are pieced). So the worst is over, it's just a matter of whacking the rest together. Just wanted to let you guys know I'm still in! :-)

    I can't believe that for a moment, I mulled it over if I should do two more sets!!! ARGH!!!! No, I will not. I just got my three sets packaged up yesterday and they are off in the mail TODAY to KLue. I will not do another, no way, no how!!! Not until the real DJ Cyber Block Party.

    Okay, now, KLue, can you pm me your addy? I know its around here somewhere...but can't seem to locate it.

    :lol: Well, I've been called worse! :lol: :lol:
    Really these 2 blocks are pretty easy...I-1 is especially easy..E-10 is pretty easy too, just have to work out the applique stitch that I want to use..

    Here's what the practice ones look like. On E-10 the bottom applique is the one I'm thinking about doing...of course with matching thread or mono-filiment thread...the top one was trying to get the stitch right..

    Thanks!.. Believe it or not, the stitch is called quilting applique stitch...I don't know what kind of machine you have..Mine is a Brother.. I think alot of machines have this stitch?? although I'm not really sure. If you have a stitch that looks like this ---^---^ (shown sideways here), but that's basically the stitch.

    I sure hope you can do another set. That's why I did it. I'm greedy and wanted one of each. :lol:

    that stitch is called the blind stitch on my machine (singer) and thats what i use for applique too.

    i think i'll be able to do the 5th set.

    the balance of my quilt/handbag work is all for christmas and if i do 1 bag every week from now till early december i'll have them done in time and the quilts that are due can wait until after halloween to be done.

    My hat is off to those of you doing 5 sets, heck its off to those doing more than 2 sets!

    On another topic Klue...I did buy the Jane software but I haven't delved into it very deeply. To find out the required yardage of say the background fabric I will need for the sew along in Jan....will I have to layout the entire quilt in the program? And...now that I'm thinking, I'm guessing that we will complete ALL the blocks for that...and I would also like to do the triangle blocks (if I'm good enough to be able to do them). So...will I have to layout the entire thing to figure out yardage to buy?

    well, you could either lay out the entire quilt and get the yardage required off of that or open the software to the dear jane home page, click on sewing techniques, then click on planning yardage and you'll see the examples of yardage based on how you want to make the quilt.

    OK...thanks I think I'll do the home page route for now and order extra. I think my main concern will be the background. I was thinking that if I plan to use say civil war fabrics, I might buy FQ sets...or not...I'm not sure yet. I will check out what they say about the yardage planning first though.

    I've made H-7 (one each) in three colors - any preferences? Or should I do a variety pack?

    I'm leaning to #2, the one with the green border
