Chain of Love Pattern Now Available

I've just spent the afternoon trying to post this pattern.  I had trouble uploading the PDF into Google Drive.  Kept telling me that I had no server.  If that was true how come I'm online?  I downloaded the new Google Drive hoping that would fix it.  I downloaded a newer version of Adobe Reader to try and fix it.  I had no luck.... Ugh!!!!!   

In the back of my mind, I knew that MSN Windows had done a massive upgrade last night.  I know how to go back to before the download but I really want to try everything else before I do that, because I will lose everything they downloaded not just the portions messing with Google and Adobe.  I finally did reboot my computer to last night and while doing that the system told me it would interfere with 2 programs.  Guess which ones?  Yep, Google and Adobe.  Well, it worked.
The upgrade was doing something to make both those programs to not work.  I not only could upload my PDF but Google Drive did it for me.  I just had to add it to my Google Drive file on my hard drive.  When I went online there was the file automatically.  How great is that. 

I just hate upgrades from MSN.  Seems like there is a war going on between Google, Adobe and MSN.    This is like the 3rd or 4th time in the last 12 months that I've had to recover my hard drive to a previous date. Thanks for letting me vent.

Well, on to my newest pattern.  It's going to take me awhile to get my next big project off the ground so I did this one for a quicky.  Check out an earlier post do read about how I designed it.  Just click on the picture and be taken to Google Drive for the free download.  Let me know if there is any problem.  I've tested the link as usually but sometimes it still doesn't work.  Email me at if you continue to have a problem, let me know which file you would like and I will email it back to you.

Keep on Quilting!!!

Chain of Love

Last night was the first time I joined a group of quilters that sew alone together. It is called Friday Night with Friends featured on Gone Stitchin' .  Click on the name to read about this fantastic group that meets this way every month on the first Friday.   Then click on the blog name to see what else Cheryll is up to.  Then click on the list of others that joined this months fun FnwF . You will need to click on each person to see what they worked on last night.  Here is what I worked on last night.  
I am calling it Chain of Love and it will be featured next week as my next free pattern.  So come back and download the free PDF's.  Maybe you will be able to complete it by Valentines Day.  It's really pretty simple to complete.  This is one days work for me.  That's after I choose my fabrics of course.  That actually takes the longest.  LOL  It is only glue basted so it's not really done.  I will applique it today.  I see from some of the comments that some think this is a block.  It's actually a small wall hanging and will measure 24" x 24" when completed and another border is added.  

Part of this design was an accident created by EQ7.  Here is a picture of what I really designed. 
This how you are supposed to design triangles for placement.  I've done it before but this time it kept coming out the way it is in the quilt.  I kept turning it and flipping it and it still wanted to be the way it was.  So I finally left it alone. That was after I checked to make sure the foundation printing section actually would use the quilt and not the block.  It worked and I guess I like it better.  It lets the blue outline the center which makes everything pop.  

Hopefully next week I will also have my Santa and Snowmen quilt tops completed.  I just have a few more stitches of applique on the last snowman and two more blocks to complete on the Santa's.  I also have to make the pines for the snowmen but that I have down to a science and should have them done in an hour or so.  Better get back to work.  I still have to start the next quilt for sharing.  I won't let myself start it until the tops of these others are done.  So maybe by the 15th or so I will start giving away the blocks for that quilt. 

Valentines is almost here!!!
