    Latest baby quilt

    OK, it took me a LONG time to find out how to resize a picture on a Mac to post it here (open it in Preview, open the Tools menu, and choose 480 x 640). Cross your fingers and hope this works! I can't remember what size it is exactly, but it covers the top of my double bed. The stripey binding is the 'zebra' fur brought around to the front. it's all flannel, with (erhem) 2 layers of batting because the first one I bought back when I started collecting the fabric for it was too small for the fur backing, and I HAD to make it large enough to use all the fur backing - the baby is now 4 years old....

    It's not quite as blue toned as it looks here, it was dusk and I was mailing it off the next morning! But, thank you! I had a ton of fun collecting them.

    "OK, it took me a LONG time to find out how to resize a picture on a Mac to post it here (open it in Preview, open the Tools menu, and choose 480 x 640)."

    I'm not sure how to open a picture in preview that's already been downloaded to
    iPhoto, however, I found an easy way to resize photos.

    While viewing the picture in iPhoto, click on "Share", then "Email", and in the bottom right corner, there's a drop down box, choose "medium" (size), and "Send".

    I found that when I email it to myself, I save it, then choose it to upload to QB, and the size is perfect for uploading.

    Hope this helps.

    Very pretty. No matter how old the baby is, it will be loved, used and appreciated.
