    Barbm...I've never used the bookmark it before. When the screen is up & I click on the Bookmark it, a little box appears in the top left but I can't make it bigger to see what's actually in it. When I click to see My Bookmarks, there's nothing there. Can you please tell me the correct way to bookmark a post? Thanks so much.

    Oops, forgot to say, what a great tutorial, thanks so much!

    thimblebug, the same thing happens to me when i go to bookmark, just a little tiny box comes up, i cant make it any bigger, but i put my cursor in the box, and click the cursor, then hit the enter button, and it works, saw this on another thread :)

    Thanks for the pdf file. I couldn't get the other one to open. I am going to try my first blocks next week when I have some evening time (I teach and college classes are over until June!).

    ABSOLUTELY ZILCH!!!! :lol:

    I don't think there is much difference, though I have seen crazy quilting in which you overlay each piece on a foundation of muslim, then overstitch using fancy stitches to hold it all together....now thats worth another tutorial...anybody interested???? :D

    Barb M and thimblebug. this is what I found out to do:-

    click on bookmark it!
    Click on the percent box - drop down menu enlarge to 125%
    just clik in the centre - doesn't matter if you can't see anything
    then hit the return key on your keyboard.

    Now at that stage on mine a window pops up saying it is saved.

    That works for me, but I know alot of others who haven't be able to, something to do with how your computer is programmed......am not that clever with em ....yet.. but moonpi is teaching me good!!!!! :D :D

    They seem the same to me too Loretta, but maybe with the crumb block you can use smaller pieces? :?:


    And thank you Izy for providing this for us. :)

    well izy, i made it the size of my biggest square ruler, 12 1/2 x 12 1/2. i think i will make enough for a queen quilt. maybe use a contrasting sashing. it may take me a while, i seem to have a few irons in the fire right now. but i will post pics when i have the blocks together.
    it is a blast. a great way to use up more of those scraps.

    Thanks for posting that. I appreciated the tip on how to keep the seams flat and in the same direction.

    Nanabirdmo, those are fabulous!
