Trying to post a picture

If this actually posts, this is my baby, Bea. As a proud Mom of this furbaby, I will be posting more pictures of her pretty face. She is a black Persian that will be 2 on Feb 5th. She likes to watch my sewing to let me know if I am doing it right. These are the blocks that I am working on. I am sure that you all recognize Bonnie Hunter's string X pattern. I am using patriotic reds and blues with a white fabric with stars. I have a great red for the inner border and I am going to have to find something for the outside border. I don't have anything and I have not found anything in the LQS that I have checked in. I can't decide on the size to make. Being a large person myself, I always want to make large quilts. Do you think there is a connectiion there???? :). I have the strips made for a 3 by 4 and the blocks are 14 inches. Do you think that is big enough? I have no plans for this quilt other than I wanted to do some string blocks.

On another note, I had 3 comments. That is so encouraging!! Thank you so much for taking the time to post something. I was asked if I was a student. I am a 46 year old student. I decided several years ago that I needed to finish my degree after working in the banking industry almost 25 years. I am a senior pursing a BS degree in Business Administration - Financial Management. I still plan to stay in banking. Also, thank you Sister for your anonomyous comments...I think that it is cool that you stop by to see what I am up to.

Hope the picture works as I plan for it to be the first of many!!!

Whoo hoo a picture. If I could learn to do it anyone can. The blocks look good. My quilts tend to grow so make it a size that works for you.

I love your string blocks - and your cat is a true keeper :-)
