Friendship Star Quilt

This is a trial post from my computer to my blog.  There seem to be a lot of extras on Windows 7, and on Microsoft Office.  May as well try them out.

This is a little quilt I’ve almost finished.  It’s called Friendship Star

Friendship Star

The picture really shows up the contrast between the different fabrics, made me notice that one block is not quite contrasting enough.  Should get this finished tomorrow – I hope.

Well – it worked and was very easy to do (the Windows Live Writer that is).

Hi Ann love this new quilt!

Middle row right side?

Something new for me to learn what can you do with Windows Live Writer and how does this help you post on your blog? I love learning new things that make life easier for me.

Discovered I don't have Windows Live Writer included in my Windows 7...I'll see if I can download it from Microsoft.

You know, it may be my untrained eye, but I can't see the offending block. All looks good to me. :)

Hi Ann...I downloaded Windows Live Writer (it's entirely possible it was already residing in my computer). I used it last night and this morning and it's fantastic. And you're right very easy! Thank you so much for telling me about this software.

Hi Ann, I find I cannot sew or knit anything darkly coloured anymore especially in artificial light.The brighter evenings may be a help but then I want to be out in the garden?!
I can see the block you think is not contrasting enough, lovely quilt though.
I must check to see if I have this live writer on my computer.

I love the star quilt - the colors are wonderfully arranged! I, too, use Windows Live Writer. I much prefer using it over the Blogger dashboard. Much simpler. And that's a lovely sampler you've stitched as well. I'm glad you're enjoying some brighter weather. We're having unseasonably warm weather, and I don't mind it one bit. High temperatures have reached the upper 80's (F) this week. I can't wait until I'm well enough to get my hands dirty!
