    Am unable to find the icon for posting pictures. I have resized the picture but am not successful in posting the pictures. I am a Mac user and am using a PC but I don't think that is the problem as we are on the same internet. Where is the icon. The help says at the top of the message. ???? I am replying to thread. ???

    gls234, if you're using the "quick reply" message, for me the icons are right above where I'm typing, and the insert picture icon is the 4th from the end. If you went to "Go Advanced" before you started your message, there are three rows of icons and the insert picture icon is toward the end of the 2nd row, right after the "link" and "unlink" icons. It's a green and blue square that looks a little like a picture with a frame.

    It just occurred to me that you may not be seeing all the icons. Go to "Settings", then "General Settings", then toward the end of the page, make sure "Enhanced Interface" is checked. Be sure to save your changes at the bottom of the page. I might be full of baloney, but I think that's how I remember it!

    Thank You all so much for the welcome and the compliments on my blocks! I am loving seeing all the pretty blocks!

    I am using quilters pattern paper from fons and porter but any type of freezer paper will work. I left the freezer paper on while stitching and re pressed it as needed. You can see the outline of the freezer paper through the fabric. I plan on leaving it on until I stitch the blocks together.

    As for the question from Mim about stem stitching:

    Stem stitching is one type of emboidery stitch. It is very easy to do! The link below is to a quick instruction on it. If the written one is hard to understand I am sure there are some good video tutorials on youtube that can show you and you can follow along with! I know it usually helps me. http://www.coatsandclark.com/Crafts/...tem+Stitch.htm

    Sharon Mastbrook's site seems to be down. If you have the DJ software, you can accomplish the same result or close to it by using your colors in each block and placing in the design your quilt section as you go along. I used to be able to get to Sharon's site through the software link as recently as last week, but this is no longer the case.

    Yes, it looks as though all links to S Mastbrooks design wall have been removed - I wonder why ?

    You can get a program called boot camp from the apple store. I have a laptop mac that I have boot camp on. what it does is it allows you to allocate so much memory to a PC site on the MAC. So now my laptop also is a MAC as well as a PC. So I could use my DJ cd on it. I am not sure if I can get bootcamp for my big MAC computer or not but worth a try for you to go into apple and ask them.

    Thanks so much for your response. The "Enhanced Interface" was the answer. I normally have no problem with figuring out computer problems but finding those icons really stumped me.

    Here are my first three blocks. I am hoping to do a trip around the world as my color theme.Name:  dj1.jpg

    Oops. Made them too small. I'll go back to the directions and try again. Next week I promise to have it right.

    The program must have sized my photo correctly because it was not this big when I inserted the picture before I posted it. Thanks again for all the help.

    I have just seen this thread and would love to join if that's ok. I have a king size bed and would like to enlarge it so that it would drape over nicely... does anyone know what size I should make the blocks for this, or at what % I could print out my pages from the book? Thanks for anyone who can help me. I hope to do the rainbow around the world look as Anina is doing on That Quilt.

    I'm so glad you found the icons and I love your color choices. I suspect that if it had been users instead of programmers that labeled certain things it would have been something like "display icons" instead of "enhanced interface"!

    My blocks are done, photographed. I have tried to post them here but I am having computer issues. Its on my end so if I can figure it out quickly I'll edit this post.

    thatquilt.blogspot.com has B4 foundation pieced, but I chose hand piecing, so a few notes:
    1. This is a good one to use "cut it big and trim" ( the length of patches, not the width)
    2. It is critical to match the center of each corner strip
    3 if the middle is coming out big/small, the width of the outside logs can be a compensation point w/o unsewing the center.

    I agree ND, that the center placement is critical. One thing I found in this block is that it is easier to sew all the diagonal strips together first and then sew them to the center. I tried one with going from the center out, then one sewing the corner strips together first - this is easier

    Well, here are my first 3 blocks, and I am just doing scrappy, with some 30's charms, muted charms and country quilter's charms. I am also trying to use some of each quilt that has been made for grands, daughters and DH, so years down the line, the grands can look at this quilt and say, "That material was in my 13 year old quilt or my graduation quilt" lol Anyway, I am having fun with this, and am working ahead of the block guidelines, but know that down the road, I will get behind. Love all the ones that have posted so far. Actually this is my first scrappy quilt, so wish me luckName:  2012-Jan 17-First set of 3 Dear Jane's.jpg

    These are the king bed sizes..King, 78 x 80. Cal. King, 72 x 84 with a 13" drop on 3 sides ....
    King 104 x 93 and Cal. King 98 x 97. However, I think most quilts for Kings are around 105" square on up.

    original DJ = 80.25" x 80.25" to convert to 105" square - ... 10500/80.5 = 130.43

    You need an increase of at least 30%

    If you enlarge all templates at 135% you will have a nice 109" square.
