WIPs from my cruise

This picture shows the improvisational log cabins we made with Vikki Pignatelli. I had a lot of fun doing this. Vikkie recommends that we finish the quilt with obscure angles. NO SQUARES! I am hoping that I will have time one of these days to finish it. These blocks were made from a kit of fabric that was given to us for the class with Margaret Miller. Sample Angle play...I bought ALL the templates..and I LOVE them so far. Some of you who kinda know me...know I love templates for piecing. I suppose that is why Vikki's class was so different for me. I really had to free myself in her class.
So I have to get back to sewing and writing instructions for a new MBS project. Ok this is a dumb question...but how can I make a PDF file a jpeg?? Is that possible? Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks for stopping by...

Welcome back...

The work around for your technical issue that I would try (not knowing any better)... would be to print out document and then scan as a *.jpg

Good Luck!

Vickie...glad that you had so much fun on your cruise. I'm not sure what advice to give you for the technical issue with pdf/jpg. Sorry! If you have a minute, check out my new blog design and let me know what you think! Have a wonderful week!

Vickie, are you on a Mac or a PC? And do you have Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Acrobat Professional?

Carin said...

I am no help with the computer question but I wanted to tell you how great your blocks are!

Great projects from the cruise. I always love to learn new techniques that stretch my imagination and creativity. I know that you can do the switch from a jpeg to a pdf very easily on a MAC, but not so sure on a PC. Which do you have?

Love your WIPs and I see you have a lot of help with your jpeg/pdf question. I wouldn't be much help with it anyway. I usually ask my brother those technical questions. LOL.

The log cabin block is great, is it paperpieced?

Vickie, I can't wait to see on MBS, looks great.
I need to learn the same thing about getting projects on a PDF file.
Keep me posted if you learn how, please.
Keep Stitchen'
