    Patricia, you may have to resize some of your photos to download them to this site. I use Picasa, a free Google program. Picasa has an export component where you can resize them (I use 480 pixels), which works well on the QB. Your quilt is coming out very nicely!

    In studying them some more, I agree that if I trimmed them all up, I would lose the star points. For right now, I think I may use another BOM from last year that does not entail stars, and when we get to the "sectional" QAYG - I'll find out what that means. LOL I assume you are going to discuss this method?? Thanks for the help and the kind words on my blocks everyone!

    Jenniky -- thanks so much for this... I have spent the past few days reading from the beginning. I NEED this NOW! Perfect timing. I have quilt blocks pieced and quilted waiting to do some form of QAYG. Thought I knew what I was going to do before reading here. Now I gotta try your method before going further with the real thing. Maybe your next few methods as well. This is so timely.

    --Boston how are you filling in the extra 1/2 inch of sashing?--

    Actually they are pretty close. The back sashing is pulling them together. The front sashing is bowing out slightly, but not enough to get me ticked off about it. When it gets washed it may pull in closer.

    Thank you JeanieG. I have a MacBook Pro. Is Picasa compatible with it?

    Patricia, here is what I found from Google - Yes, you can use it on a Mac, and this link will tell you all about it.
