    Eight charts of valuable and interesting Quilter Conversions, Yields, etc.

    Happened across this one today, and it's a treasure house of math, conversions, yields, etc. I copied every one and will have it at my fingertips from now on. Wish I had had this last week . . .

    Thank you. I have saved all charts, even if I never use one or two.

    Yeah,good luck copying them. There doesn't seem to be a print option...and they want their logo in the middle of each chart. I tried to highlight and copy, when you right click, your highlight disappears. So I went to each chart, put the cursor in each one, right clicked, copy, then pasted in a Word doc. Yes, the charts are blurry...they scanned them in rather than using a file format for their website.

    Yep, they did not optimize the pics, but I was able to copy them and size them up to about 5" wide without too much loss.

    HERE'S ANOTHER WAY TO CAPTURE THOSE PICS besides the right-click which works most of the time. I have found this a great timesaver and it works when the right clicks don't: THE SNIPPING TOOL. I have Windows 7 (hate Windows 8), and from the Start Menu, search on >SNIPPING. A small box will come up asking you to frame up the item you want to copy. From there, it displays it on another screen from where you can copy, redirect, etc. I put mine into Word.

    Actually, I use the Snipping Tool so much, I've put it on my Taskbar. Give it a try; I think you'll like it.

    I right clicked on each, saved it to documents, then opened it in Media Smart Photo and then hit print.
