    searching pinterest

    I'm looking for images of Sampler Magic: A Sampler Quilt by Lori Smith of My Heart to Your Hand.
    I'm looking for images of the quilt in different colorways.
    Google only brought a few even with Sampler Magic in parentheses

    When I look on Pinterest as I type out Sampler, their search engine shows suggestions to click on, changing as I type the rest but no exact hits to click on.

    and when I've finished typing Sampler Magic and there are no suggestions below the search box...
    Where do I click? I know, sounds funny to ask, but I see zero places to actually instigate a search.

    I don't think we are allowed to put links to Pinterest, so if you could just type the answer, or send it to me via PM that would be great

    this is the authors site image https://www.frommyhearttoyourhands.c...ROD=1155192447

    I do not know how your search is working but when I use the search term

    'Sampler Magic: A Sampler Quilt by Lori Smith of My Heart to Your Hand' in google images or on Pinterest, I find a huge number of images.

    I see 5 of the one I'm looking for. I think it is the word Sampler that overwhelms the return on google

    What do you click on to search pinterest once you have something typed in? Thanks

    As far as I know, the only way to refine a search on Pinterest is to go back to the search window and add words. If you look at this search that I did, you will see that the Lori Smith quilts come up first. The search engine looks for the best matches first, then adds in anything that even partially matches.

    I think the same is true on Google images. The closest matches to your search words will be shown first.

    As far as I can tell, there are not many images of this quilt online.

    I just click enter after I enter my search info on Pinterest. Just did it a little while ago.

    Pretty pattern....I love this one-could be Christmas or not!

    The pattern appears to be star blocks-can you google sampler star block quilts for color way inspiration?

    it is an interesting color lesson quilt.

    You pick your 3 colors (this is where stash becomes valuable) and of those three, divide them into light medium dark.
    When you pull for the block you can see instantly in grey scale where the light, medium, dark choices go.
    Or you work with just three fabrics, one light, one medium, one dark.

    A grey scale image of each block pattern is provided.
    When you pull for the block you can see instantly in grey scale where the light, medium, dark choices go.

    How easy is that? It is my next machine project when I've finished with this year's Bonnie Hunter mystery.

    thanks again for the help!

    I'd already forgotten the ENTER solution So a search for the same quilt brought me back here, and I get to relearn it
    I did write to Lori but she didn't have any suggestions, or any images squirreled away on her 'puter.
