    I've been asked to post pictures of my DJ journey

    I started by doing just a cream and red Dear Jane as that is the current color scheme of my bedroom. By week 3, I decided to add a scrappy DJ. After seeing a background fabric that I really liked, I decided to add a 3rd DJ by week 4. We are on week 7 now. My blocks are 4.5" finished Thanks for looking. Here are the pics:

    oh my, they are wonderful. my favorite is the scrappy one, it seems to make the blocks more interesting than just the 2 color one (but it is wonderful and very old fashioned looking)

    Nice work. Goodness, cannot believe you are doing so many variations. Does it get easier if you do a block a 2nd, 3rd, etc. time? They sure are nice. I thought I'd signed up for updates on DJ....am working them along the schedule posted. Will have to research to see what I'm to be doing. YOURS SURE ARE GREAT

    Wow -- making 3 at one time... I felt luck to complete the 225 block, tris and corners...I keep watching what everyone is doing --- and I know I will get motived to cut my sashings and begin to join blocks. I worked every week - completed at least one block and one tri... took me one year and one week. Thank you for sharing your ideas - great work

    Beautiful can't wait to see the finished quilt.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    Thanks for showing us the beginnings. This looks like such a coplicated quilt but one step at a time, I suppose. Please keep us posted with pics of your progress.

    It does get easier on the 2d and third... if I use one technique that I don't like, I try a different one on the next. And doing 3 allows for chain piecing... couldn't do that with one block at a time. Please post yours on our DJ thread http://www.quiltingboard.com/blocks-...n-t175669.html You can join in any time

    And here I sit, trying to decide if I can be precise enough to begin a Dear Jane with all of those tiny little pieces. Your blocks are magical and will be heirlooms for your family for generations. Your use of color is excellent and your ambition is immense. Best of luck funishing them all.

    WOW - I can't in my wildest dreams imagine doing THREE DJ quilts at one time. It took me 17 months just to do one. Your blocks and triangles look great - all these will be beautiful when completed.
