    Recent 'flimsie' finishes - Flag, Birdhouse, and Classroom Artwork

    In preparation for a shipment to a distant LAQ, I took some photos of several tops I finished in the last several months. The flag quilt was the result of a pattern I saw on Moda Bake Shop. The birdhouse top is a UFO made from blocks I received in a swap performed I believe on about.com over 10 years ago. I blended in some flying geese I received among the stash of a good friend, when she passed, and some braids I'd made a while back waiting for a project to meld in to. The final photo is of a quilt I made for my daughter's (3rd grade) teacher, blocks made with fabric markers on Kona cotton.

    I guess my photos are too large (2.4 and 2.5 MB) to post here and I'm not sure how to reduce the size.

    Here is a link to the same on my webshots.com album. If you go to the first, the birdhouse and artwork quilts are immediately following.

    Thank you for your patience and taking a look,

    here is a link to a resizing thread that PatriceJ posted http://www.quiltingboard.com/qb-help...g-t166655.html
    also, Picassa is a free program and can be downloaded here http://picasa.google.com/
    one you have it downloaded, you can use the Edit in Picnik which has a free resizing feature. I usually resize to 480 pixels in the first box.

    Compressed Photos for those prefer not to use the link(s) above

    I tried my hand at compressing the photos of the quilts referred to in the original message. The quailty of the photos is a bit off, but if you prefer not to use the link above, at least you have the option of a preview here. Thanks again for peeking.

    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Nice quilts!

    I am impressed with how you combined the braids, flying geese and birdhouses into such a cheerful, bright quilt.

    Of the three, I like the bird houses one best. Each is really a great quilt. Love your patterns, your fabric choices and the whimsy in the classroom quilt. Thanks for sharing.
