    I wouldn't mind more scraps. One of my projects that I am working on is a Bonnie Hunter pineapple quilt. The blocks finish at 5", and have about 46 pieces each, so in the beginning of each block, I can use very small pieces.

    Hi Red,

    Love all of the fun scrap quilty projects you've done! I'd love to take some of your scraps to free your guilt, if you want. It's amazing to me how many of you produce so many items so quickly. I'm still in the stage where I'm collecting fabric. Thanks for all of the eye-candy!

With my smaller pieces and strips I then made 110 4 1/2" crumb blocks and finally just got exhausted and bagged up the remaining scraps back in a bag. Sigh...but it was a good start. Still have reds, yellows, browns/blacks, greens, purples, pinks, and tons of whites! If I decide to just give a bunch away to free up my guilt, would any of you be interested in more scraps???

    Thanks for the compliments everyone! Those of you who would like some scraps, please pm me with your address. I'm still in the "separating" myself phase of being able to pass on some scraps without my insides screaming "NO"!!!!! LOL! So it might take a few weeks, but I feel it's a good thing to do.

    Hey Quiltermomma! I got home last night and found my selveges. Woo hoo, fabulous! Don't know which day they came cause we were at daughters for weekend. Funny I forgot to get tracking on yours too! Don't remember even what day I sent, but it was priority....hope you like your scraps, it took me longer to get sent cause I kept finding little cubby holes of scraps. Sheesh I had no idea I was stashing my scraps all over the place!

    I am already saving more for you if you like. I have a large canister that had licorice in it so will have a good smell when done. LOL. Most of those were long ones. Did I get them right for you? What do you use those for anyway? I have not received your package yet, looking forward to it.

    Yep, right on target! Yum, I love licorice so will look forward to those selveges! I am going to make a quilt with them so you can imagine how many I need.
    I will continue to look for scraps, I know there has to be more....unless my daughter has squirreled more than I thought, lol.

    I hate to be a bother but would some one either post or PM me on how to post a photo? I looked in the help section and read that I needed to click on an icon at the top of page that looked like a tree with a square around it. ???
    Please someone help me!

    I am sure that someone can give you better instructions for posting photos, but I can give you a start. The icon that you are looking for is located on top of the box that you use to reply or start a thread. It is the third icon from the end of the row on the right hand side. Clicking on this will open an insert image box, you then locate your photo on your computer. If your photo is too big you can use a program such as "paint" to resize your photo so that it is smaller. I do not know how small it needs to be... I just guess at this point. Maybe someone else can fill in this part.

    I will be sure to cut them with a little left over. Now with them being long, that should help right? This will be taking you some time to do then.

    I got this from Lynn a while back and have used it ever since for resizing my photos. It is perfect and easy to do.
    This is a great way to resize your photos if you have the Microsoft Office program on your computer. If you find the photo you want to resize and right click on it and go to 'Open with' - and you need to select 'Microsoft Office (year)

    Your photo will open up in this program and you have a tab on your toolbar which says 'Edit Pictures'

    Click on that tab and go down to 'Change Picture Size' - RESIZE and click on that

    It shows what you original size is - now you need to resize that down to a size that can be uploaded easily.

    So go up to 'predefined width and height' - and click on the drop-down box (little arrow on right) and you need to choose one - I usually go with the document large size - but ultimately you need to have the new size around the 700-800 pixels size or lower.

    Click OK. Then if you click the Red X Close button (top right hand corner) it will prompt you to SAVE CHANGES. Make sure you click SAVE.

    Now you are ready to post your lovely quilt pics here on the Board.

    Hope this helps you. It is a little fiddly but very effective in the long run.

    Happy Quilting

    Lyn

    Now for loading a photo, I use the Go Advanced button below your message, works great for multiple photos. Then you select manage attachments, then you will select to browse for your photo, select it, then hit upload. It will upload your photo(s) then close that file, then post reply.
    If using the little image button in the tool bar for your message, (by the globe third from the left towards end) select from computer tab, select browse, then find your file on your computer, hit choose file, will upload it for you and post onto the screen. This works great if just doing one photo. Hope this helps.

    Judy5cents scraps have taken the scenic route thru LA to get to Canada. Not sure why they booked themselves a different flight knowing they were mailed in Spokane and could take the short route up north.

    I cant believe that a package sent from Spokane would need to go to LA to get to Canada... as I said to QuilterMomma in a PM... those scraps are having more adventures than I am !

    Sometimes I do not understand the post office routing either. I live in Idaho and recently mailed off a wedding present for grandson in southern California. I got tracking and see that package went to Salt Lake City and then Denver????? What the??? Why go east when it needs to go west. I suppose it will get there eventually but I still don't understand.

    I received the package of scraps. Sorry slow in response. Thank you so much.
    Judy5cents, it says the package is in Canada passing thru customs. It took two days there. You will probably get it before the weekend. Yippeee!!!

    I was wondering if it would be alright with you and the members of this group if we had a Secret Santa swap where we exchange gifts as well a scraps for Christmas time. You can assign us swap partner ahead of time were the person that is our secret santa partner, but they will not know who it is until Christmas time. What do you and the other members think?

    This sounds fun to me! I don't have tons of scraps, but if we do small ones I could participate!
