    Oh Lindsay, those blocks are beautiful! I love those soft colours! It will be a stunning quilt!

    QNS, your stash it up to that challenge With my first Sylvia I used cornerstones for the first time and I have to say, it's a bit more work but it's worth it. With this one I'm doing another approach, at least that's what I'm thinking now. Might change my mind

    WMUTeach, you're welcome! Sometimes it's not easy to start a project like this with so many blocks.

    We seem to have started posted pics of blocks early so here are my first two blocks. I am using the same background fabric and main fabric and mixing it up with some tone on tones for contrast.

Size:  1.63 MB Changing a jpeg to a bitmap in EQ5 takes away alot of the proper colouring, maybe someone can give me some advice on this?

    Thanks Thimblebug. The lay out is there but the colours are off. When I tried to copy blocks into EQ I had the same, blocks were there but colours were way off! It's a great way to keep track of the progress. I'm using an excel file for my blocks.

    There are free converters online but can't you save the picture as bitmap right away?

    I've tried scanning them and saving directly as a bitmap and the quality is even worse I have an old works program on this computer & haven't been able to figure out importing a picture to use in a spreadsheet. On my laptop.... I can see the function to insert the picture but it's huge & I haven't used that program to know how to get the photos to shrink to the size of the spreadsheet cell. How do you do it on yours, maybe mine might be similar? Also... can you post a picture here of what your spreadsheet looks like? Thanks.

    I'm using a free resizing programm: http://pixresizer.en.softonic.com/
    When you have your spreadsheet and clicked on insert a picture, you have to choose from your computer which one. Once incerted you can make that picture fit into the spread sheet by 'taking' one corner and move it till it fits a cell. I use three cells down and one across for 1 picture. I have my first Sylvia spreadsheet as a picName:  compleet (483 x 628).jpg

    Oh WOW... that's really cool.... I need to see if I can figure this out, thanks so much, I hate the way the EQ skews the colours in bitmaps.

    Anael, thank you I managed to make an excel spreadsheet on my laptop and insert the pictures, but this computer with microsoft works 2000 spreadsheet doesn't have an insert picture function that I can see. Oh well, time for a walk and then off for our New Years Day luncheon!

    You're welcome Thimblebug. I don't know MS works 2000 so I can't help you there.

    QNS, sure you can! Thanks for your kind words I know you will do a great job on the blocks!

    Which block are you working on Mirabelle? I'm curious

    You can install that Resizer yourself. Just click 'download', when it's done downloading hit 'run' and it will install on your computer.

    Posies round the Square, gosh these pieces are tiny, but I am soldiering on, not one to give up too easily. Tomorrow I want to draw up Kansas Troubles and paper piece it, works better for me than tiny pieces

    Yes, those pieces are tiny, specially the leaves
    I renamed the Kansas block and called it Troubles in Kansas. I tossed the first one and used pp for the second one.
