Show and Tell


Several readers wanted to see the patterns I bought on Saturday, so here they are. I scanned them all yesterday, but three of the four scanned as "tif" files instead of "jpeg", and are way too big to load. Not sure what I did differently - I'll have to try again.

"A Fall Gathering" is the one I bought wool, homespun and fabric for. I just love the beautiful hand dyed wool fabrics - if I were independently wealthy with lots of extra room at home I'd collect lots and lots of those for use in quilts, rugs and other projects. This will look fabulous on the couch in the living room in the fall.

I started sewing the binding on the charity quilt last night, so I should be able to finish that today.

Looks like you will be having some fun with the wool and primitive pattern. Hope to see a pic of the quilt you were playing with soon!

WOW! What rich colors! And fun design! That is going to be one great quilt! I can't wait to see the others too! I think you can load a tif file into Paint and then save it as a jpg.... Not positive but I do that for bmp's to jpg's.

Very pretty design. Can't wait to see what you will do with it.
