As I have mentioned in previous posts, I like to make quilt tops and then move on to make more quilt tops. These 2 sets are a perfect examples. I had extra squares of red, white and blue fabric, so I made up these sets. You may recognize the star on the left. It is a blue star banner. This is displayed by families with loved ones in the armed services. The history of these flags can be found here.
I have made 2 sets with three pieces in each. The rectangle flag is 10"x15", the square one is 10"x10" (and could be made into a pillow) and the last piece is also 10"x10", but it's a picture frame. The four corners are folded triangles which will hold a picture of your loved one.
I want to give these 2 set away to the first 2 people who leave a comment that they are interested in them. Remember they are just the tops. You or someone you know will have to finish the quilting. I hated to see these go to waste just sitting in my sewing room. Don't forget to leave an email address if I can't contact you through a blog.
Before you move on...scroll down for my blogger question. I'm desperate for an easier way!!
This is the second set of three quilt tops: the only difference is the picture frame corners are in red.
Now the blogger question...
Is it me or is creating a new post not as smooth as it should be. Why can't I type my thoughts in order and then put the photos where I want. When you insert a photo it automatically ends up at the top of the post. Then you have to drag it down where you want...and then that messes up the spacing or things disappear. This post for example...I know that I want the freebie pictures and the words to be first in the post, but I'm writing this part first because I know blogger enters from the bottom up. OH MY GOSH...is this making sense? Another thing it does... it doesn't post exactly what I've done in the posting box. Sometimes I have the right spacing from the title to the first paragraph or the right spacing between pictures and words, but when I post it, it does what it wants any way. I've had things centered in a preview post, but when I submit it, it's off to the left. I need some advice!! (I think that was what they call my first rant!! I won't do it again, I promise)
My question is...how do you create your post and insert pictures and do you have these same issues?
Thanks in advance for your help,
