    Spreadsheet of BLOCK patterns

    Hi fellow Quilters!

    I sat down yesterday and made a simple spreadsheet of all the patterns in our awesome BLOCK magazines. Yea!
    This way, when I see a Quick Tutorial or mention of a quilt pattern, instead of paging yet again through all my BLOCK mags, I can look at my spreadsheet and see where the pattern is.

    On my copy of the spreadsheet I intend to add notes of which patterns I've made, which I want to do, etc. And when each new issue of BLOCK comes out, I intend to add those patterns (generally 10) to the list with a new column header, and then re-sort the file by quilt name.

    If you aren't used to spreadsheets, you could still add new pattern names with an X in a new column for the next BLOCK issues, etc. And remember, on most web pages, if you hit Control-F, a search box pops up where you can enter a name to FIND.

    Below is a link to the file via GOOGLE. When you click on or copy the link, your computer will rightly tell you to be careful -- warning about viruses, etc. You have my word that there is no virus in the file. But practice safe computing and examine the link or whatever to be assured.

    Hope this helps some of you as much as it is helping me!

        I found the videos. Are the dates on the vids posted in sync with the Block Magazine?

        I want pictures before I buy a magazine. If I can't use any of it, why spend the money?

            In all fairness, Evonne can add notes to hers, keep track of those she's done and wants to do, and also do searches on cell contents.

            Still, I was feeling "naughty" and wanted to share the smilies above!

              I could not open Evonne's link; so if anyone had the same issue I did, there would be an alternative that M*'s website provides. I apologize for posting......feeling "condemned"......

                  I can't preview the sheet either and I'm unwilling to download a sheet without previewing. Thanks, sherman, I had lost the link to that one.

                      What a great idea. I just joined a couple weeks ago so I shall use your idea when I start receiving them.
                      Thanks

                        This is so nice of you, and I wish I could open it. Is there any way for a Mac to open this? I don't recognize any of the programs that were suggested for opening it.

                        Thanks shermur for posting the link you have.

                          I see by the extension (xls) that it is an Excel file. I didn't open it as I don't download unknown files from people I don't know. I'm not sure what the Mac equivalent is for Excel, but I am sure there must be something.

                          Before you speak,
                          T - is it TRUE?
                          H - is it HELPFUL?
                          I - is it INSPIRING?
                          N - is it NECESSARY?
                          K - is it KIND?

                            The Mac equivalent is called Numbers. There is also an OpenOffice spreadsheet program called Calc.
