    That is spectacular--I can see a lot of time went into the quilt--one to be very proud of.

    Wow I think I

    got it. I have worked and read "How to post pictures" and everything everyone has sent me. Thanks so much.

    I have one more question. Instructions ask that 640X480 is a good size. My problem my "paint" program changes the size by percent. These pictures are reduced by 25% or to 25% who knows. How can I set the right size? I have a little more work to do.

    With paint I'm seeing a setting where you can change it from % to pixel size ... BUT .... if you click on "Image" then "Attributes" it will tell you the pixel size (you may have to change the radial button from inches to pixel). So after you reduce it x% ... check the attributes to see if you've got the right size.

    pretty quilt!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    after resizing mine in Paint, i put my cursor over the photo again and it tells me how large it is. then i edit again if necessary. i don't do pixels either.
