    Yeah, I think we're all nuts. Back when I was in the working world we used a projector that hooked up to the computer and threw the images on the wall. I was just on line looking at Staples and Amazon and there are quite a few of them on the market. Looks like decent quality starts close to $200 but it may be worth it if you are going to do many art quilts. I'm adding it to my long term wish list.:)

    Are you nuts? Of course you are, all quilters are. What sane person pays $10+ for good fabric then cuts it up into small pieces and sews it back together again?

    Take the ad to a Kinkos and they'll blow it up as large as possible.

    I Wish I could work on several projects at once... I see something I like = I buy the material, print of any directions and or pattern...Then stack it all on my book case for later... Then go back to finish the one I'm presently working on...Cause it would drive me nuts not to finish it before starting another lol
    Although, I think part of that is because I am new to quilting and it takes a lot of concentration/learning as I go...Once Im more of a seasoned quilter..I'll probably join the rest of you..

    I must be nuts also. I have been buying material, mostly precuts, saying this is the one that I am going to start with. See I have been out for a while. However, I will find another pattern and then can't decide. It must be fabric fever because I keep ordering or it is the holidays? I hope that will be my new resolution to get started on something. So many suggestions and new ideas on this board. I would be happy to just have several going at one time.

    Now, there's a finite (sp) line between nutty and crazy don't you think?

    When I was a kid and someone called one of us a nut, we'd say: Nuts grow on trees, trees come from nature, nature is beautiful, so thanks for the compliment!!! I enjoy being a nut....welcome to the club.

    I am trying to post a picture that relates to this topic. Checked the help file but couldn't find the browse button in order to follow the instructions to send it. Can someone enlighten me, please.
    Personally, I think I am not only nuts but have also acquired dyslexia in my old age. I read the instructions carefully and then wind up doing just the opposite.

    That would make a beautiful quilt. After you take it to Kinko's, if it still isn't big enough, graft it out but making squares and then draw each one on a bigger square. put them together and you have your quilt. I want to see it when it is done! Jan

    That picture sang to my heart too, it is so beautiful. I think I'm going to try to break it down into a paper piecing project for placemats and see what happens. Just another nut here.
