Good Morning everyone  I received my book and got caught up on the LUS blocks so I was able to start the Dear Jane yesterday.  I was able to get 4 blocks done yesterday.  I wanted to say that I love everyone's blocks.  One good thing about being behind is that I get to see what everyone has done and all of you inspire me one what I can do with my blocks.   Jacy, thank you for giving us the instructions.  It made it so much easier for me to get them done faster.  I am not doing the border blocks yet and I am doing the simple blocks first so I feel I am doing something.  I watch my granddaughter during the week so I hope to get one maybe two tonight.  Have a great day and happy quilting.

Jeanette

Jacy, thank you for giving us the instructions.

You're welcome.

I ddin't make the triangle blocks when I started either. I just started making the triangles because I have an idea to make a separate quilt with them.

I have been so busy with new BOM projects, that Jane has been put aside. I will be working on her this weekend!

Looks like there's several 'out there' that are still interested in making up their DJ blocks.  I had bought this book several years ago, but, never got started on them.  I had *recently* discovered the Quilted Diamonds by Linda Franz and had joined a Yahoo group for them... the owners of that group changed the name to the JaneStickle group and have been focusing on the DJ blocks again.  So, rather than leave the group to do the diamonds, I decided that I'd try a few DJ blocks.  I couldn't find my book, of course, so I ordered a second and have been working on them for a little over a month.   (Of course, I *found* my first book, yesterday... does anyone need a book?  I'd sell it cheap!  LOL!!)  I also bought the software and have found that very helpful.  a little confusing to use, at first, but, I'm finally 'getting' the hang of it.  It really helps with printing out the templates for cutting out the pieces.  I have done hand piecing so far.  I tried one block with hand paper piecing, but, I'm so new to paper piecing, that I got more confused than it was helpful...:-/    I find these little blocks quite 'satisfying' to do... you can finish them fairly quickly, so, you get a sense that you're really *doing* something and making progress!

Mary, I haven't hand pieced any of these blocks (well, actually, I've never hand pieced ANY block and admire those who do). I've either pieced or paper pieced. I really do need to pull it back out, I did enjoy doing them. Of course, I need to FIND them. I cleaned and reorganized my room awhile back. They are somewhere.

I'm more than half way done but "misplaced" my work for over a year. I found it recently during a clean up of my sewing room. I've been thinking of working on it again. I mostly hand piece. I sew at work when I have down time. Otherwise I would only sew on weekends.

If you found yours Kris, perhaps there is hope for me. My room is so small, you'd think I could find things.

Judy I had to take everything out of my sewing room before finding it. My space isn't very high either but things get buried quite easily. I took photos of everything before putting it all away again. I made a list of where I put everything. So so sad. LOL

I decided to do a search before some friends arrive this morning. I looked on shelves, in cubbies, in bins, in zippered bags. I found other things but no DJ. I sat down at my machine, staring at the wall wondering where it could be. On the shelf in front of me, only place I didn't look, are the blocks and books. Too close to see I guess.
