    It's the one with "sew-a-long" in the name of the group. Did you find it?

      I did, Kayla. Thanks! I see I've even posted to it once. LOL

      I have some reading and sewing to catch up on, I see!

          It's adorable. Looks like lots of applique to me. I need to learn that process.

            I feel so guilty - I haven't sewed a single block yet. In my defense, I wasn't happy with my background fabric so yesterday I was forced to ordered more fabric.

                Sounds interesting and will certainly be a unique fabric combination for this quilt. Please do post pictures.

                  I did a test of your pic, assuming I had the right site. Test3.jpg

                  Assuming you have Microsoft Office 10
                  Right click the photo file and select open with Microsoft Office
                  Click Edit Picture in the tool bars
                  Under Change picture size, select Compress pictures and select the Web pages radio button or Email radio button. The Email size will be considerably smaller under the Email choice. You can see these changes in the Estimated total size areal below the Compress pictures settings.
                  Once you have decided on one, click OK
                  Then click File / Save As from the top Ribbon bar.
                  Then try to upload that to your form message.

                  Hope this helps.
                  If both pics come through, the large one is the radio button for Website choice and the second compression is for the Email radio button choice.

                    YES, the smaller blocks are tedious. Even if you press the seams open. But they are just too cute to quit. So I'm making both sizes. I'm having trouble finding enough reds. Can I combine batiks with regular quilting cottons? Or is that a faux pas?

                      I believe you can combine fabrics if you'll like the end result. It's your quilt, so whatever makes you happy will be fine, right?

                        Hi,
                        I am new to the group, and I have ordered my book. I am excited to get started. I plan on using vintage fabrics I have along with scraps.
