Lexi, I don't think any of us would mind if you put the large pictures, or even the thumbnails in your post--you can chose either of those by going to the pictures and selecting either option underneath, like this:

Thumbnail--remove the dashes (-) on either end of the code

Full size, same procedure as above

"Star Flimsy" is my favorite--I really like how the white sashing shows up in the thumbnail!

Those are all very pretty.  I like the star one a lot, the contrasts are wonderful.  I'm also impressed with your seam matching skills.  My first quilts are not that fantastic to say the least.  Great job!

Looking for postcards from anywhere to use for RSVP cards for my 8/2012 wedding.  Have 80/200.

Very nice! I agree with Linnybelle... my first quilts were no where near this nice. Pleasing color choices, precise piecing, super, super job!
You should be very proud.

Live creative.

Thanks Distracting 1 and DaisyAlly. All of the nice comments make me glad I started this very addictive hobby(?) I really enjoy the challenge, not to mention the fact that I hate to waste anything and this is going to help a lot in that area.
