I shouldn't have looked either. I've always admired the Dear Jane quilts, but this one is awesome. Probably, the only way I would attempt one is if I approached it as a BOM or BOW with the support of a group like TQS. Otherwise, I would likely procrastinate and never get it finished.

Margarita,

Thanks for letting me know that the fabric requirements isn't as bad as I've heard. As soon as the book arrives, I will go fabric hunting. I'm afraid to go inside a fabric store until the book comes for fear of seeing something I like and not knowing how much to purchase.

Amoret, sometimes I do fuzzy cut the pieces, as some of the pieces are so small that if you want to have some colors in it you do have to fuzzy cut. Other times you just have to pick the colors you want for a specific section of the quilt. (so far very little unused fabric on the project) Margarita in Auburn, CA

Well, I ordered the book and software from Nancy's Notions because the Clearance was just too good to pass up.

I haven't purchased any fabric yet because I don't know how much to get. I have decided to make the background white. Hubby wants me to use various black fabrics for the rest so blacks it may be. Although, I started thinking that sticking a small amount of red in the mix every now and then might be kind of fun and make it more interesting.

You know the blocks are very small.......just perfect to sneak in without your dear hubby recognizing it. And you can say -- "WHAT, these old blocks???? I've been working on these for years! :wink: :wink:

I'd love to have a buddy that starts with me if you do decide to go for it. Although, I don't want an angry hubby looking for me either. :o

Margarita, you're doing a wonderful job and a fantastic choice of fabric!! Do you let the pattern take you or fussy cut a bit??

I have my picture of Rows A and B and the border triangles that I have so far. After putting them on the design wall, I know that the outside triangles are going to be the background fabric. So I can start putting part of the border together too. I will be posting a picture on Show and Tell, what are you working on, and doing a blog with the picture too.

JoJo, thanks for the information. She was an amazing lady. And to the rest of you that are making a DJ quilt by hand, my hat is off to you. You are amazing! Definitely more than I am willing to try at this point. Bobbi
