Lynn, I love your DJ quilt so far. I am working in rows, doing 3 blocks and 1 triangle, working on row H now, so I am a bit over half done. I sew the blocks together as I go. Doing all the piecing and applique by hand. How is every one doing on their DJ so far. (I will probably quilt it by hand, too).

Do most hand quilt the Dear Jane when finished? I do love hand quilting and just wondering if I should tackle it with hand quilting. I quess I am from the old school. It takes away if it is not hand quilted? But I don't have the time to hand quilt every quilt I make. But the Dear Jane is an unusual quilt or special with all the work that goes into the blocks.

May you always have sand in your shoes and a shell in your pocket!

Oh man I wish I was that far along, Lynn! Looks great so far. I might have about 30 done. Just completed my first tri block this week. What a quilt they will be!

May you always have sand in your shoes and a shell in your pocket!

Oh, Eileen, I told my husband just this weekend that my goal for this year is to go back to Houston this fall, and I too will have to work really hard and save to get there!
Elizabeth, nice to meet you! And don't worry about overloading Margo, we all do :? -- I really think we should call her our Forum Angel, instead of List Mother, or whatever the last term was. By the way, you might go back and check out the Daily Blogs from about November 5 or 6 to see the quilt we made for Margo. It's certainly not enough, but it was a token of our affection for her.
Lynn, yes, I'm pretty sure I saw a commitment to Ruffled Roses in some of your comments :wink:

If I don't get a confirmation on the additional background that I already have that is what I will do. I love scrappy!......primitive...civil war look, etc. Might be interesting! Thanks Margo !!

Don't forget, Elizabeth....you can do it scrappy! Use the background that you have and add 3 or 4 (or 20???) other fabrics of similar value, and you are good to go!

Quilted Lynn I am committed to the new 2011 bom too! I have some background fabric but not enough...so waiting to make sure the remainder amount comes in before I start using what I have since it is discontinued fabric!

I'm in too as I've completed over 70 blocks in my usual 'brights' colorway -- all from stash. I'll try and get a pic of it soon.

I've finished quite a few recently so they aren't pressed and trimmed and placed on the design board yet. Almost all are pieced by hand. I love doing handwork.

Began it 2-3 years ago and then sidetracked to 2009 BOM, a lengthly (9 mo) stay in NE Georgia, and then re-entry to Texas. Whatever! Lots of excuses. Still unfinished!! ha :oops: :oops: :oops:

I think I committed to the new 2011 BOM today (????) I belive this is a true indication of the onset of senility. :roll: :roll:
