    Very nice mousie, I like the colors. Thanks for posting your WIP, I see you are embroidering the hearts before you attach them. Interesting.

    I tried doing it the other way...attaching appliques first? but for me, I'd rather "adjust" the applique pieces to fit in, than have to adjust the shape of my embroidery.
    I guess I could do that too! :) thanks, andrea

    yes, I did start over.
    I bought the Flowers, Hearts and Garlands book and realized that my heart wanted to save the blue for that and go with my love for reds, and.... ;-)

    That's beautiful Mousie. I love the colours and the floral and the extra centre.

    Worth the wait to see.

    Mousie, it's so pretty. Even unfinished, I can tell it's a winner! Ya got any more you want to share?

    Bummer about the camera. I just got a new one, but I bought an 8G card & reset the factory file size down to the lowest setting. You don't really need a pic with 2MB or larger size for posting on the internet.What kind did you get? I got a cheapie - Sony Cyber-Shot at Wally World.

    thank you, kathy!
    I'm glad nobody is looking at my background and going p-u! :shock:
    I think i was just a little, oh wow! when it came...
    but the more I looked at it, the more potential I saw to dress it up and get all my fabrics playing nicely on it. :-D
    I love it now! :XD:
    About the camera...I don't know that much.
    Example: I don't know anything about re-setting the factory file size.
    Mine is a Kodak easy share C182. purple...lol. not that anyone but me would care about that.
    I don't know what size card to get.
    I don't have any more blocks finished to share right now, but I will!!! (I have planned some "hopefully", yummies! )

    Mousie, to change the size of your pics, push the MENU button. You should find an option to CHANGE FILE SIZE. Choose it. Then look for the smallest number x the smallest number & choose that. Something like 640x720 or whatever. You don't want it to say 2MB x 2MB or even bigger. I have the option for something huge, but since I'm not publishing a picture in a newpaper, I don't need anything that big. Those settings are for someone who wants to make a huge picture - like 11" x 17" & have it be really crisp & clear. If you wereto post a pic that size on the internet, it just might cause the forum to freeze up trying to download it! :-) After you pick your file size, click on menu to exit the function.

    I think your background is lovely Mousie.

    I so wanted to use a variegated coloured background but was reluctant to purchase sight unseen over the internet. What I liked on the internet I didn't see in the flesh here and what I liked here I didn't intend paying $A25 per mt for. In the end I played it safe and ordered the Kona black which I had previously used.

    I am happy with the black now but I do drool over everyone's coloured backgrounds.

    not to use black was a fairly simple decision for me.
    I had just planned two quilts with black as the main background color.
    Once in a while I think, "it would have been nice to have used the black", but then I like the variety in all the pics.
    It was fun for me to shop for this background's playmates! ;)

    gee, you guys...you've all been so nice, I'm gonna make another block this week,...lol! ;)
    thanks, shem! I loved Patti's and couldn't find anything like it.
    I'm happy I didn't. It is an opportunity to tap into the right brain and do something unique.
    This is a henry glass/nancy crow fabric, called, "Olive Crush".
    It really plays well, with my stash and I have a yummy border fabric that is wonderful.

    I just LOVE it Mousie!! Hmmm....if you slide those reds a bit more to the orange side...I could sneak down there and....OOPS! What am I saying???? Of course, I would never try to snitch your blocks...really...really....:wink:

    I do love your background..wonder if it would coordinate with mine since they are both Henry Glass? I'm really happy with the olive. You will have to be a bit careful placing greens, but it does work. That is really interesting how you are embroidering the pieces before you applique them down. I never thought to try that!

    Mousie, I love your block! I'm so glad to see people using other than black for a background. Very well done :thumbup:

    I feel so complimented, Miss Patti, thank you!
    I will be using some oranges in my quilt, and this red has orange too.
    When I get a new camera card and take a picture instead of scanning, maybe it will show up.
    I tried doing the appliques first, but then had to squeeeze the embroidery in...didn't care for that.
    This way, I press into shape, but then when I go to put it in place if it needs tweaking, it's not hard to turn it under a little more.
    Works for me ;)
    I do love this fabric, and if you want...I have a piece that was not big enough for a block, I could drop in the mail and you could see if you want to order that for your outer border?
    I think you'll really love it with your more solid reading block places.
    If you don't decide it plays well, that's ok too.
    I like variety and I've never worked with anything like this before.
    it's fun! :D
