Great collection!

I did not want to order 2 yrs for 1. I thought it was something else,

how do I save to my own computer? how do I print it? this site keeps me going around in circles....

There are blue/white buttons at the bottom of each page, on top of the comments section. From these buttons you can save your pattern to go back to later, create a note for yourself or rate the pattern. You can also email the page to yourself, where you can then print it. You can also find all of these buttons on the top of each pattern. Hope I helped!

I like it has so much action in it.

love all of 'em! My husband can't wait till I finish just one of my many projects!!


Yep, they'll still be here, landchill1234 5719502! :) You can also try going to your local library to print. Happy quilting! --Editors of FaveQuilts

Every time I get an offer of "Free" stuff, I have to buy things that I can't afford, so I guess I won't be getting my "Free" iPad, will I?
