    Yayaquilts, I love your Hawaiian prints. It's going to be fun to see all of these come together.

    I use paint.net to resize pictures. It is a free download off the internet, then you always have it on your computer to use. If you want to go with paint.net resizing is super easy.

    Yaya, download Google Picasa. It is a free program. You have the option to export a photo, and resize it at the same time. It works great!

    Thanks ladies for the picture resizing sites. I forgot about picassa!!!

    ?? for RVquilter: do you take your sewing machine with you in your RV on trips? If so, do you have a smaller machine you take? I want to take mine, I've been prepping my husband, but he's not keen on the idea, but I just have one machine a Pfaff Quilt Expression 4.0, kind of big, oh well!

    I usually take my Brother when we travel in our RV. I love to piece on it, as I can just use the on/off button and don't even bring the foot feed. I put a cutting mat under the mattress so it won't warp, and have a travel iron I keep in the RV. I've finished many blocks while on the road.

    WTG!!!
    Last year there was someone who posted pics with her sewing area set up in a separate tent!
    I forget who?
    I know MamaBear 61 has a FW and a full set up of supplies that stays in their RV ... though I think she stays inside the unit and doesn't venture outside!

    PaintMeJudy ... I'd appreciate your comments as to whether my A+F in each group should be reversed?
    Also whether you think the two florals are too large?

    Here's my fabrics ...
    Autumn Group ... Floral to be F; rest A thru E

    Thanks JeanieG .... I'm thinking these will give me two Christmas gifts for GFs, so I've chosen the fabrics thinking of their homes.

    And how did I miss your fabrics .... beeeeauuuutiful!!!!! I was so tempted with purples, as that's something I don't use a lot, and yet they've crept into my stash. Then reality grabbed me and said, make something for their gifts! I really really like yours! For you?

    There is a lady in Alaska on Kodiak Island (no electricity, no telephone) that sews on a treadle machine, under a tree, and even does mending for others......she grows all her own food also.....and trades sewing for salmon......I could do this, except for the snow.

    QuiltE, I think both groups are fabulous and will be beautiful. As I look at your fabrics, hold off on cutting the 3-1/4" strips. You'll bee why in step 4.

    And welcome, auntlucy

    How do you know if you are a person who should wait on cutting the 3 1/4" strips?

    Double post again. Anybody else having trouble getting posts to go through? I keep getting the Leave this page/stay on this page message and can't tell if my message is actually posted....even after waiting several minutes. Never had this problem before this week.
