  1. When I was hand piecing the DEAR JANE BLOCKS of my UFO …. I gathered up all the directions, templates and pieces of fabric in a plastic sleeve and kept them in a three ring binder. I had a binder for finished blocks and a zipper binder for blocks I was actively working on. All the threads, needles, thimbles and a small scissors was ready to go. That folder went every where with me….. I did get over half the triangles done and 70 of the blocks made with that kit.

  2. I should tell you why I never finished my DJ …. I was in a car accident in 2006 … my DH brought a house keeper to come in and get things fixed up for when I came home from rehab. She was pretty good she put the entire project into a plastic bin but then she put it in the basement and forgot where she put it….. I did not find it for two years after the accident… ( this was two years when I was taking art and quilting classes and my technique and workmanship had improved) I looked at my blocks and hated them as the colors / workmanship was horrid. Those blocks are waiting for me to do something with it …. maybe someday I will stick them into a baby quilt…. Maybe.

  3. I also love hand piecing. I like having a hand project around so I don’t feel like I am wasting time when I am in the car (not driving) or watching TV (don’t watch Mad Men). I am also working on a kit to organize your hand piecing and bring your stuff along. I haven’t finished it, but I do like the pattern: http://www.thezenofmaking.com/2013/08/tutorial-english-paper-piecing-travel-kit-hexies-part-3/ Check out my tutorial on Y seams: http://www.artquiltmaker.com/blog/2016/10/quilt-class-lemoyne-star/ Anyone can do Y seams with a little practice. The Jinny Beyer Perfect Piecer tool (http://amzn.to/2qh94SA) really helps with marking.

    I am like Pam in my feelings about challenges. I used to do them all the time. Now I have enough to do without doing challenges. Like Lynn, I challenge myself.
