    Default I posted to a blog for the first time today...Fabric Trays

    Yesterday I was going to try one of those oh-so-cute fabric boxes that have been all the rage here lately. I read the directions and thought I could make them. I should have printed them out. I missed a step and my fabric box turned out to be a fabric tray...Click image for larger version.

    I thought it was cute so I posted a picture. Several people posted a request for directions, so I worked on it today. I felt like it needed pictures, so I made another one and took pictures as I made it. I was dreading the process of reducing them for the forum, and then it occurred to me that I did create a blog awhile back and maybe that would be easier. I've never posted to it; I just created it and then lost interest.

    I'm pretty intimidated by the whole blogging process. It's been so long since I created it that I didn't even remember the title. I muddled through it today and here is my first post.

    TADA!!!So Many Quilts, So Little Time!

    Please, please, you bloggers, do you have any tips? I couldn't find what I was looking for in Google Support and I got so frustrated I almost aborted the whole process. I wanted to put a picture of the box I was trying to make. I did put a link to it. I kept on getting an error message when I tried to preview it, then I couldn't publish it.

    I may never blog again but at least now you have the directions if you want to make a tray...

    Tray/box, it's the same, just a different shape. I have just as many uses for a tray as I do a box. What a great accidental creation!

    I have been a bit delinquent in posting to my own blog, but it is equipment issues on MY end. I love Wordpress for it's ease of use. Although I have been told that whatever you first learn on is often the easiest.

    Good job!

    This is neat. The fabric box I made used 10" squares. How cool is it that you can get 2 different shaped boxes by altering the way you sew the corners.

    Sew cute! I can see this with utensils and napkins in it for a buffet or a picnic, just match the fabric to the season or reason.

    If you get an error message, it usually means something in your link is wrong. Need the http:// at the beginning and check for other misspellings. Hope this helps. Going to check you out
