    couple of years ago I decided to make my first quilt. Since it had curves, I whacked out some practice pieces from random pieces of fabric. Those pieces went to a friend of mine who said send her all scraps. Her group put it together and donated it to a handicaped person. I call it the one that got away.

    Did you try giving the post some extra time to load the pic. Sometimes it takes awhile for pics to upload on my computer.

    Not to worry ... I know about the time delay required! It eventually showed up.
