    what to do with scraps

    I bought two kits from Craftsy, both using the same cats material. I made two quilts and had lots of scraps left, so I made three pillows. Still had scraps left so I donated them to a local group that makes comfort quilts and toys for the sheriff's department to hand out to children on calls that involve children. They made three quilts from my scraps. Here are three of the pictures. Sorry, I could only get three of the pictures to upload.

    What phone are you using? I have a Samsung 10e and it is just the latest in technology. But if I can't share my pics with my quilting friends, then I need a different phone. I can get it to load on Facebook but not on QB.

    I've got the low down on the picture deal. The newer phones have much better resolution for the camera than the older ones. The megabytes on the ones I am taking run around 2.85-2.9 MG. Way over Patrice's 1.9 maximum. We need to accommodate those folks still on dial up, but not cut us new phone people out entirely. What we need is a patch or a method of reducing the clarity of our pictures. That will help Patrice and she won't have to upgrade her software. I've got a few more suggestions such as sending my pics to someone who could down size it. ????? Marcia

    Cute and I like the fabric line. I am a cat person who is often put off by cat fabric. This fabric is subtle enough to not scream, Cats! Five quilts and several pillows from two kits means...... someone is very thrifty or the kit makers are very generous!

    The maximum is not "Patrice's", nor does she upgrade the software. It belongs to Internet Brands as indicated at the bottom of the page. Patrice is the Community Manager and our liaison with Internet Brands.

    I had a Samsung 8+ and now I have an iPhone 8, and don't have any problem sharing on the web. I transfer the photos from my phone to computer and then share on the web. I think there might be an easier way to do it, but this works for me.

    That type of strip quilt is perfect for donation. So easy with pleasing results.
