    Elsie: I keep seeing about a Dear Jane quilt. Is that a certain kind of block? Don't mean to sound "dumb." I looked up Dear Jane on the Internet but did not know if it was just one kind of block. Sue

    This was a picture I took of the GFG quilt at a show in Hampton, VA. This is the kind of border I was describing that I would like to use on my quilt.

    Thanks to Shemjo I actually found out how to post a picture. That is all for now until I get our digital camera unloaded. Thanks for your help and interest, especially you, Shemjo, for teaching me to post a picture.

    Dear SS Teacher. Here is the post I found about pictures:

    Click Post for a new topic (or a reply)
    - Enter any text such as the description or comments for the picture in the main text box
    - Click Attach Files button at the bottom
    - Click Browse button and find the file you want to upload on your desktop
    - Click Submit button

    Make sure your picture is either jpg of gif format. Otherwise, it will be added as a file attachment without being displayed on the page.

    Also, make sure the file size is not too large. If you try to upload a really large picture (greater than 1MB in file size), then it will most likely fail.

    If you have a large picture, please resize it to no more than 800 pixels either in width or height. After that, you shouldn't have problems uploading it.

    Good luck, jo

    Yes, I found them. They are so cool. My picture didn't appear, so I'll have to resize or something to make the picture work!!!

    Yes, Elsie, anyway I look at finishing the GFG is going to have to be appliqued. I have not done a lot of applique but I do like the handwork.

    You may have to take your quilt and hoop and sit in the backseat. :mrgreen:
    Nicely innovative solution!

    I am currently working on a quilt for a friends daughter wedding. It is a whole cloth quilt, and made out of Tricot. I am just learning machine quilting, but did not feel confident to do this one by machine. I love hand quilting. I also have a baby quilt, also whole cloth, made out of tricot and I am hand quilting that one. I have serveral projects, that are in progress, and I have them in bags, so I can work on handpiecing them when I go on vacation in a little more than a week. We have a long drive and hopefully I can get quite a bit done.
