Last Call for Susannah!

Hi Ladies! Did you think this month would never end?!? LOL – I did! Anyway, tomorrow is the 31st and I will be drawing for two winners at noon (MDT). So if you haven’t finished your Susannah blocks (or want to add more), you have until then to get them posted. In the meantime, please check out the list of blocks donated this month (the link is in At a Glance) to make sure you are listed correctly. We are up to 91 blocks so far. Wow! And...

resizing photo via email

 Robin, The first upload seemed to work but then my page would not post. I got out of Block Lotto and go in again as the publishing attempt continued to be trying to upload. This time I went to the media page and clicked on the photo I had loaded from my iPhoto.  I will try to post again and see what happens this time.  Thanks for your help with this. :)Carol  ...

test to resize photo via email

 Thank you Robin, It seems to have worked.  I dragged your email photo into my iPhoto and then uploaded to post as I did in the past and it appears here so I think that this will work. Thank you so much.  So does this mean that if I email a photo to myself I can resize it to small and upload it or do I need to send it to you first. Thanks for your help....

Photo Upload Problems

Photo Upload Problems

This morning I deleted more than 100 FAILED photo uploads from the website. When I could get some information on the file and could see how large they are (and who uploaded them), THEY ARE HUUUUGE!  This isn’t a problem a few of you are having, it’s a problem MANY of you are having. A file size in the HUNDREDS of KILOBYTE (KB) is plenty large enough.  A file size in MULTIPLE MEGABYTES (MB) is many, many times larger than it needs to...

What If?

What If?

What if you put a 6 inch quilt block in place of the colored square?  For this example, I used a 6 inch sawtooth star. I thought this could make for an interesting setting and a way to make a bigger quilt from smaller blocks … what do you think? I planned to make my own blocks this weekend, but instead, after I got home on Friday, I found myself coming down with the flu … and barely got out of bed for the past three days.  (I am...

Commercial Pattern – BQ By Maple Island Quilts

Commercial Pattern – BQ By Maple Island Quilts

Honestly everyone, before I selected the block and created the block directions for this month, I LOOKED for a commercial or other pattern for our block after I found it on Pinterest and came up empty–probably because it had been referred to by a different name: I’ve Been Framed. Tonight, Glen sent me email identifying the commercial pattern based on a larger block (18 inch squares) like ours and asked about permissions. You can find/buy...
