  3. still have picture posting problems and 2 more quilts finished for Christmas

    I still can't get my pictures to upload, despite getting the enhanced menu visible. Don't think it is too large/too many pixels for the program. I use Windows XP--any suggestions?

    My last blog post said I was better at quilting than technology--today I'm not feeling either! Doing a simple "attic window" type quilt for SIL for belated Christmas gift, using Asian inspired fabric. I just seemed to have the "duhs?" when it came to cutting accurately--especially ...

    OK--took me a couple days to figure out the reason I wasn't adding pictures is I didn't have the "enhanced" toolbar--thanks to Peckish and others for giving step-by-step instructins under search for "posting pictures"! So here is the snowglobe quilt--my daughter is loving it! Darn it--won't upload--I'll try in pictures thread.
  7. The total pain kit is finished and I love it!

    Despite only using the white background for the blocks and the brown bases for the "snowglobes--I think this turned out very well. Can't figure out how to get it posted on my blog--so putting it into new entries photo thread--I think--first photo posting. But check it out!

    Now on to finish a modified log cabin lapquilt for brother and start/finish an Asian fabric lapquilt for my SIL so they hopefully get them for Christmas before New Year's! Seems like mail between us takes ...

  10. Santa came early

    by , 12-13-2013 at 04:42 AM
    I'm pretty excited. It hasn't arrived yet, but I just purchased a Janome Horizon MC 15000!! It is supposed to do everything you want--embroidery, quilting machine, wireless with an iPad, etc. Does anyone have one? How steep is the learning curve? If anybody has tips, techniques, or suggestions I would love to hear them.
