    Whic Star quilt update

    Thank you all so much for your suggestions and comments. Enjoyed reading all of your posts. I have chosen Star 1 and have finished the top. The border will be trimmed down after it is quilted. It will take me some time to decide on how best to quilt it. My brother requested this quilt for a very dear friend and I want to quilt it extra special. Any suggestions??
    I don't understand why the pictures show so small? When you click on it the pictures is so large you can't see the whole. Is this a new format?

    your quilt is fantastic! i love stars, and these are so sharp and what a great contrast in the colors! i have no idea on any quilting suggestions other than to accentuate the stars somehow? i am so new i can't even give myself advice let alone anyone else! very good question about the pictures, i have noticed that also and really frustrated about it! at least i am not the only one, that makes me feel better! have a beautiful day!

    Your quilt top is beautiful! I just click on the thumbnail pictures to enlarge them. I think I would stitch in the ditch on the stars and find a nice fancy pattern for the bigger white areas. Maybe you can find a triangle feather design to fit there?

    Beautiful quilt!! Yes I too have noticed the small photos, and when i click on them, they get very large, too big for my screen for just a few seconds and then they are a nice size for veiwing. Wait a few seconds after clicking on them and see if you are able to view them.

    Beautiful!!...on my computer(Dell with Windows XL) I right click on the picture...a menu of about 10-12 things appears. I click OPEN IN A NEW WINDOW, it opens really large, but after about 5 seconds of being patient it becomes a nice veiwing size.....hope this helps

    It turned out beautifully. I too have noticed the small links to photos. I don't much like having to move through extra pages to view the photos.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    It is beautiful. I love quilts with that diagonal. I clicked once and it was a perfect size. When I clicked on it a second time, it magnified it. So if you double click you may get that gigantic magnified photo right away

    I think that quilting design would perfectly accent this BEAUTIFUL quilt... cannot wait to see it all done (maybe by then the picture size thing will be all worked out... LOL!)!!!
