    Couldn't wait to show you this lap WIP. The more I did, the more I loved it. The dkest colors create the movement, so it doesn't matter what color you put in. It's a great chance for you to use your largest scale prints. Have 6 panels so far; 12 bl. per panel. Turn your blocks any way you want, just focus on the placement of the darks. Started w/5" sq.; now they're down to 4" fin. (the size I wanted). Hope you'll be either inspired or lifted! Just love the red, orange, pink and yellow (my main focus) and threw in a dash of navy, black, brown and purple. Will try and give you pics of all the diff variety prints if it'll load right.

    Don't you hate that! :-)

    The photos may be too big? This system doesn't like big photos, and most digital cameras these days take quite high resolution photos so they're big files.

    Hi Blue Chicken! Yes, I hate it! I've retyped this so many times (same parag. over and over ~ ha) Am so anxious to show you guys - it's just so different from anything I've done and a great block for newbies. It's a no brainer for sure. Pics aren't too big. Thought my son was going to restore it last nite back to gr. zero, but he cleaned it out instead. Looks like a full restore is in store for me tonight. Will see what we can do tonight for it. Maybe a defile and debomb would work.hahahahhahha

    Did you hit Preview? You CAN NOT preview your message, if you attached photos.

    yea, that's what I was going to say, if you try to preview your post, it doesn't attatch the pics. Try attatching the photos, and hitting submit right away. If your files are big, it could take a couple of minutes to upload, but it should work.

    No, I knew not to do that> Got hit hard on 9/11 (of all days) w/184 infections and have been reeling since then. My son tried last nite to copy my files/photos to CD and it wouldn't let him and wouldn't tell us why. I am just now able to get online since the last time at 3pm today. He told me it froze up on him earlier today. He's on his computer now so it'll be a long wait. We were in the middle of rewriting files to CD when we lost connection so I have the foggiest what to do next. Any ideas? He and I went thru all my programs to delete anything suspicious but can't tell the good guys from the bad ones>MS came on he said and got rid of malicious malware this aft.

    Thanks for the tip on hitting submit right away. I gave it four full min. to load but figured the cleaning my son did on it last night wasn't going to be enough to download these pics. Right n ow just hoping we can copy to CD and save everything. I spent 5 hrs. Fri. nite trying to load one pic and doing a restore 9 times, cleaning, debugging, defragging and still nothing.

    Yea, hopefully. Really wanted to show these as they really have my excitement going and just love some of the 60's fabrics I put in them. Thanks, hope we can get her restored.

    Darn ~ I wish you could post that scrappy hourglass quilt. Judging by your avitar, you like scrappy quilts? The one in your avitar is just beautiful!!! I am just now getting interested in making some scrappy quilts. My stash was getting out of control, so I'd like to put it to good use, rather than go out and buy more fabric. Do you use patterns or just "wing it"?

    Ta Da!!! Hallelujah!! Praise the Lord I am sooooooo happy I'm up and running and these loaded all three at once!!!!! Want to show you one more of the "cocoa, java, tea, coffee" from the 60's I threw in with some other early 60's prints. Aren't they fun?

    Hi Nita, Yes, just can't seem to get enough of the scrappy look. Thank you for the compliment of my avatar. Will post pics soon of that one. Yes, put your scraps to good use for sure. Despite the stash, I still can't seem to part with even 1/4 inch scraps! No I hardly use any patterns, but make my own. I love designing. Now get your scraps going and let us see your creations!!
