    You might have turned them off without realising it- top right, click settings, then on left (lower down) click general settings and read through the options there to see if you have ticked "view images" (it might be "view pictures" but you know what I mean...)

    I'm using a desktop publishing program, "Ready, Set, Go!" on an IMac. There is a PC version. I drew it using tools, took a screen shot of the images, saved it as a jpeg, and attached it to my message.

    For more information, go to:

    I use this program to design quilts.
    This program can be purchased online and sent on line to be downloaded.

    I'm a slow learner and need pictures, too. I still don't understand some of this - like the Hybrid View. Help, please.

    If you cut 4 (or a bunch) 2.5" x 5.5" strips. Stitch them in pairs. Iron. Lay one pair on top of another with colors contrasting or however you want them. Wiggle the middle seam til it sits right. Square off the ends. Stitch both ends. Lay your ruler on one of the seams you just sewed and line it up with the seam. Measure over 2 1/4" from the seam and cut. Repeat on the other end. you'll have two perfect 4 patches from each set of pairs you do.

    If you're doing a two-four color quilt. You could use the full length of the jelly roll strips. and just keep working in from the ends.

    Eleanor Burns shows it being done on her videos. On her jewel box tutorial, she shows how to take two pieces of material and get 4 HSTs and 2 4-patches from two pieces of material laid on top of each other with right sides facing.

    I have a really "dumb" question (I know it's not DUMB because I'd bet I'm not the only one who wants to know."

    What does "Blog this Post" mean? OK, now y'all stop laughing and send me a reply. Thanks!
    One step at a time, always forward.

    No one's laughing at you...and I'd like to know as well. (Also, there are no 'dumb' questions! Right, people?)

    I do 4-patches with two "darks" and others of two "lights" when I run short of squares of one fabric - I use up my stash and gives it a very scrappy look.

    This is particularly helpful with theme "overruns" (I had Christmas fabric BREEDING behind closed cupboard doors until the door literally burst open ....) I made a lovely cream-reds-greens bed quilt using the Christmas Counterchange pattern in "Creative Scraps - Quilting with Bits & Pieces - 67 Beautiful Quilts to Enjoy" published by House of White Birches.

    Eleanor Burns has a tutorial that makes 4 patches so easy! http://quiltinaday.com/theater/2800Series/2808.html
    Her way is quick, easy, and makes perfect intersections every time!

    I am fairly new to quilting. To start myself off with I bought a bunch of jelly rolls at Walmart at half price. There is so much you can do with those strips. I love this board, (old or new, although I am sorry to see so many have not come back since the format has changed) and love how all you quilters out there are always ready to jump in and help someone out. This kind of posting by janeknapp is awesome for new quilters, so helpful. I just want to say thanks for all the advise and encouragement shared here every day.

    I've been a member since May of this year and "lurked" for about six months prior to that. I have learned SO MUCH and I have been sewing / quilting for over 40 years. Amazing how much information is on here. Anyway, I agree, this is a great site.

    Pat Design.....how did you get your signature to show up? Everytime I post where my signature should be is just a link. When I click on the link all I get is a white page with my name on it.
