New Blog Design

Don't freak out, you are at the right blog. I decided to play with the MyMemories Suite software that I won at SewCalGal's blog. I created the new header for the blog with one of my quilts in the background. But I ran out of time and just used a stock Blogger image for the page background.

What do you think? Do you like the change? Any suggestions?

I like it. I have My Memories Suite, too.....but I'm not sure how to get the header sized right for the top of my blog. :(

Looks great Gene!

Hey Pat, the header size is the width of your blog template by about 350 pixels(average size). You can adjust or take note the width (in pixels) of your template in blogger by going to design, template designer adjust widths, entire blog. Then create your header in that width and the height you like.

Also, Jennifer of That Girl, That Quilt has a blog banner tutorial you can use if you don't have photo editing software.

It looks good, Gene. I was also lucky enough to win one of these, but it was too large a file to download on my computer, so they have kindly sent the disk to my Grandson in CA, and it will come home with my grand-daughter in late Feb when she returns to Australia. I can't wait to try it out- looks like fun! Sandy. :)
