Mimi:

Great job Kris.  The colors are quite striking.  I can't wait to see you put in the purples.  It will be very grand. 

On another note I see your postings always have a copyright on them.  How do you apply that to your photos?

Thanks Mimi. I think the purples will add some life for sure.

I add the copyright in photoshop elements using the text tool. It's not difficult at all.

Thanks Judy T and Jean.

I'm having fun with this one. Last year was more stressful.

Thanks for letting me know.  I use iPhoto.  I guess I'll have to investigate where that might be.

Mimi,

I use iPhoto as well but Photoshop Elements has some features it doesn't have. The two programs are linked so I can chose where to edit photos.

I have finished step 4 and it's looking like I will probably make 2 lap Halloween quilts.  Was even able to cut the green squares.   Here's an idea I have of how it might finish out.  But it's a mystery, so who knows.

Great job Jean!  I was a little worried when I saw all that orange at first but now I'm loving it.  You sure do know how to pick lively colors.

I was concerned too, but I think the yellow has helped.  Now I'm not sure about the green.  At least it's not a quilt that will be out all the time!!!  Can't wait to see how it all comes together.

I love most of this quilt so far. Except for my gold fabric. I may change to green but will wait for the next step and see how that 3-1/2" block is used. Right now it looks like the gold will really overpower the other blocks. 

 


In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

Judy,

don't change it. We don't know how this will end and you'll probably use more of that gold in another step. 

I like it so far.

I love how you've chosen such eclectic fabrics to use in this.  I was thinking a pink/magenta might also be nice.  I see that in some of your fabrics and it could pull out the pink in your white floral constant, IMHO. I'm sure you will have a great finished quilt when all is revealed. You always do.

You're absolutely right.  The yellow has helped.  I knew there was something different.  I like the green, but then I like the bright green in Bonnie's quilt.  I had lots of scraps of that color.

Last year was more stressful.

Yesterday I was watching Bonnie's quilt cam and she said she was thinking of having one year with an easier mystery quilt and then the next year with a harder one.  I'm glad this year is the easy one.  She also said that she was thinking about starting up a yearly retreat at her home in NC.  Not that participants would stay overnight at her home but just go to sew then stay in a motel and pay for meals elsewhere.  Apparently she has a larger out building on her property she's thinking of renovating into a sewing area.  Sounds expensive, at least more expensive than the QCA retreats.

Mimi,

I know it will be expensive. Bonnie makes her living this way. The QCA retreats are organised by regular folk looking for a bargain and a good place to get together. I would like to, one day, attend one of Bonnie's workshops or retreats.

Judy,

I meant the other colours. You'll probably use more of them. The colours with the most yardage are usually used more than the others.
