It's soooo nice to have you join us here too.
I haven't even found time to see the cd, but I read some of the letters from farmer's wives the other night and ... I want to live on a farm!!! These ladies really had a character.
I looked thorugh my stash and found some creams, browns and deep reds that might look good on this quilt. But I still have to give it a thought.
I have been making up a folder for these pdfs from DJ & now this one! Not having EQ, since it don't work on Macs, it's really nice to have the pdfs to save! Love this first one you did, Susan! I tried piecing it & it just doesn't work, & come out the right size anyway, lol. Now I can try it this way, yeah! Love this block, it's one of my favorites!...
I, unfortunately, broke my Fw cd. I forgot to put it in a cd box and fold the back of the book , and
th cd broke.
I'm not so sad because it was really poor. When I run it once I did not notice if there was more than pdf files on it.
If not, there is no problem because I know Nancy gave us these pdf and Susan has EQ6 pdf.
Could you tell me if I really miss something without the cd.
Good afternoon, after trying block #2 for me out of this book, I have to say, the raw finished blocks come out 5.25 to 5.5, & not 6.5, with a finish of 6in. So, for those of you doing them in EQ, you may want to try at least one, using the templates, then decide on a finished size to go by, from that. I was very careful when I did these two & my seams were acurate, so, using templates provided, there is no way they are going to come out larger... I want to do them anyway, just going with the smaller size, & I am okay with that. DH says, they must have been off, when they figured out the finished sizes for these blocks, using their templates, & I agree! Just want to forewarn everyone.....
Susan, I've figured out how to draft foundation patterns for Farmer's Wife using EQ 6. I've made and printed the foundation pattern for #26 Cut Glass Dish. How do I put it into a pdf file? I googled pdf files and got a lot of options. What's the best and easiest way to do it?
