Beautiful!

It would be nice to have a picture! Thank you if one can be supplied.

I think, from the tiny pic in the newsletter, that it 'appears' to be a nice looking quilt I may want to make, but there is no quilt image at all, let alone larger, that I could get to appear. Since this was an issue long ago as well as now, I guess I won't be seeing it soon either. Too bad.

I'm using an iPad and can see the image clearly. It is lovely and is definitely on my list of quilts to make.

Try doing a control+ several times, that will enlarge the picture. When you are done, do a control- to bring the page back to it's usual size

there is a cross in the top left hand corner = broken link....cant see pic - I notice people having this problem for 2 years, surely we ALL cant be wrong :(

There is no image. Please update all quilt patterns because many of them do not have photos. And it's not the browser, unless the images are set to only show in Firefox or something.

Hi beverlyr 3354455, You may need to update your current browser. The photo takes a few second to load on the latest version of Firefox, so for an older browser it would probably take longer. Thanks!

Can't see the photo!!!!!!!

Hi judyvan999 9927425, I can see the picture in Firefox. Perhaps your connection is just loading the photos slowly or you might consider switching web browsers. Thanks!

Can"t see photo of the quilt. Also couldn't find area to print this quilt on the area shown. Like easy print!! Also was trying to find pattern 494 of AllPeopleQuilt and so far that has not come up. Web site too difficult when in a hurry.
