    Jan is very good at this sort of thing. I need pictures and words to assemble anything. Lots of directions are just pictures now days and I am sometimes lost, I need the words also.

    I design my own graphics in Microsoft Paint on the computer. I've been using it for many years so find it rather easy, but the original learning curve was the pits for a self learner! I haven't owned a computer quilt design program since the early days of EQ. Paint is somewhat limiting, but it serves my purpose well, for free.

    Thanks for asking.

    I'm making my own book call "Jan's advice." I print out almost everything she has to say that I need to hear. Thanks Jan for your generosity in sharing all your great Knowledge. Now I'm going to look for those patterns she was talking about.

This is where I am confused "Cut four strips 3"wide" also at the 45 degree angle, oh I need help PLEASE!
    Make your 45 degree cut on the left side, then flip that cut so it's on the right side, now make your 3" wide cuts. Have fun!

    I just thought the same thing, Jan in VA has such a logical mind. She immediately recognizes how to graph it out for easier comprehension. She is also generous with her time to actually plot it out. Jan, you are a natural teacher.
