Have fun, Eileen.  (That's my mother's name, too)  I really enjoy hand work, but because I design patterns, I do a lot of my quilting on machine because it's faster.  I'm going on a vacation soon, too & trying to figure out what hand work I can take along.

That sounds wonderful!  Any quilt-y stuff involved?

Thank you for your kind words.  I'm going to try and get this quilt in more shows.

Hi.  Turns out there are only 59 blocks. :-(  No, I haven't made diamonds, but I do them just as Linda Franz does . . . with freezer paper.  If you have only made five, maybe it still seems awkward . . . they are awfully small.  My sewing machine would have 1/4" finished squares for lunch!  They are great to work on while watching TV.  Many would not agree with me, but I find handwork to be fun . . . the machine would turn it into work.

Eileen, I just posted a couple of Dear Jane pictures . . . that's a few of the blocks.  I'd

love to see yours.  Linda Stone

Hello, Eileen.  I started a Dear Jane quilt some years ago . . . Ithink I have about 69

blocks done.  Somehow I got sidetracked, though, and haven't been back to it, but I

certainly plan to.  Aren't those little blocks just like potato ships . . . can't do just one!

Actually I have done the Brenda Papadakis blocks by the Linda Franz method.  I think

Brenda did hers on the machine!  Can't imagine doing that.  I do not plan to do the

border "blocks" and mine is scrappy . . . little bits of everything.    I'll try to post some pictures of some of the blocks so far.  Good luck and have fun!  Linda Stone

My husband keeps telling me the same thing; he thinks I'm bored and need a challenge.  I do make small art quilts for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative and those are perfect to try new techniques on.  I make a quilt a month for them, and it's time to start a new one.  Maybe that's what I should do.  Those are always a challenge for me because I'm not really into art quilts and it's like staring at a blank piece of paper and not knowing what to write.  I do have an idea though.  I've made three in a series and I can do a fourth.  I call them "Metallic Threads" and they are challenging.  Maybe I should do that.  They're fun to plan as well.  I usually make one ever couple of months.  I already have an idea too...a Christmas theme.  Many of them are taken to the Quilt Festival in Houston and they need some with fall and Christmas themes.  Another plus to making them is that the maximum size allowed is only 9"x12".

Thanks for the encouragement...another reason I love this site!

I can see how a DJ quilt would definitely improves ones' skills...I've only been quilting for 6 years and have so much to learn.  I think I should be an intermediate by now, but I make a lot of quilts to donate and generally use simple patterns.  I'm actually starting to get bored and my husband says he noticed I'm more excited about quilting when I'm doing somehing challenging.  I've been in a dry spell lately, so to get back on the horse I'm just doing another charity quilt; hoping it'll get me back in the mood!
