Re: Just Starting Out 16 Oct 2009 13:10 #39430

I just signed up with Quilt University to do the Dear Jane class. Problem, don't know if it is yet, that she is doing the blocks in 4" instead of 4.5
I'll see how it goes, class starts in a few weeks....

I told you girls you were giving me incentive to finish DJ and I just finished all the borders -- woo hoo! I just need to do the corners and I am done!! It is bittersweet, we had snow last weekend and I was able to get a lot of those triangles completed.

Looking forward to seeing the progress on all of the new DJ'ers in the group.

Sharon in -- now its warm - Colorado

No, JoJo got the ball rolling here and I just sort of fell in with the plans. I quilt for others so it's not easy finding the time to sit and do this.

Sharon, I just saw your dear jane quilt..

..... takes so long...great job....nice to know it can be done. And there seems to be so many that have finshed it and some that are working on it. Something that we can hand down to our familys. Rina

Hi girls -- well Wren I started my DJ the day after my DS entered the Air Force. That was April of 08 -- so it will probably take 2 years, off and on. It really touched my heart -- the quilt -- made in war time and I wanted to try it. Boy have my applique and small stitching skills taken a beating, but have also improved.

I really want to have it hand quilted, and no I DO NOT want to do it myself, but also the cost could be dangerously high. So will probably get it long arm quilted.

I was going to work on the last 2 triangles tonight, but we were given Rockie tickets for tonight. So they better win. Is shivering an aerobic exercise. If you watch the game we are above the manual scoreboard in right field. Look for the purple coat. LOL

Sharon in darn it still cold Colorado

eileen,
Is that the first step with the templates and frezer paper? I just have the fabric wash and dried, folded. I left my CD to the dear jane in the office this weekend so I can't start yet. And my new lap top is back to Staples becouse Vista won't take my Bernina embroidery. I left them a copy of the Hotfix for EConPC with Windows Vista that I copied off the internet. :cry: Cant't get started yet.

You girls have definitely given me incentive to keep going. As many of you know I only had the left border to complete, so this past snowy and COLD weekend, I got 6 triangles done with 2 to go. WooHoo! I willprobably finish the 2 tonight, then sew the borders and on to the corners. Getting there.

This is so great!! I got the templates for the first 5 blocks traced out on freezer paper last night while watching the Yankees WIN!!

I'll cut out the pieces and iron them on today. Hopefully, I'll get some stitching done tomorrow.

Talk later,

I have been blogging about it, so Yes, I am in. I started a year ago, but put it away when other life distractions hit. I have a very special "mentor" from TQS that I will blog about soon. I am a beginner.. yet she had faith in my determination to do something very special for me. I am determined to learn as i go and I will finish this. I will not disappoint....

I have just started working on it again. I have 23 blocks done and 1 triangle. I will actually decide at some point to redo some of those earlier blocks, as they are just not what I want them to be. I am so impressed with all who are hand piecing this. I know I lack the experience to do that. I am learning so much as I go. Sometimes when i finish a block, all I can think is..Oh, that is just the cutest block ever! It is addictive. :lol: :lol: :lol:
