using Black/White photo options

A few months ago in the July swap for scrappy 4 patch blocks, one of my participants shared a great tip! Using your computer to change a color photo to Black & White only.

On our HGTV discussion thread - She shared a photo of her fabric choices all laid out to see if she needed to swap out any before sewing lights and darks into strip pairs.

Too bad that one of my newer swappers missed that tip this summer.... b/c this set blocks will be going back home to her this time. They are still USABLE - there are several patterns by Bonnie Hunter where she calls for a 4 patch with only one dark used. ;)

Thankfully she was VERY understanding when I emailed her the two above photos and explained. ;) what she did next surprised me... she promptly made up another set and mailed to me so that she will still have a total of 20 swappable sets :) Thanks so much! They're Purrrrr-fect! :)

Love from Texas!
