Quilting can be done by hand, by sewing machine, or by a specialist longarm quilting system.

This template is based on one of the newest templates offered on our sister site - Expression Web Mobile Friendly Site Templates. This template uses some CSS3 for the rounded corners.    The rounded corners will display as intended in newer modern browsers including Firefox 4, Opera 11, Safari 5, Chrome 2, and IE9.  They will degrade gracefully in older browsers and default to rectangular corners. This template uses a fixed width layout and is mobile friendly.


The image used at the top of the page for this template is one of the borders from The Inspiration Gallery and is repeated horizontally across the page. You will need to retain the credits link if you choose to use any of their images. You can substitute your own image at the top of the page but it should be a seamless image that will tile across the page.

The quilt image in the right sidebar is a sample image from If you choose to use it, you will need to purchase it. Clicking on the image will take you to the image on Fotolia.

Style classes are also included to float your images right or left or center them on the page.

The transparent graphic image used for the site name was created using The Logo Creator. If you go to their Facebook page, become a fan, you can get a free copy of the software.

Alternate Color Schemes

Border images are from The Inspiration Gallery, Click on Borders from the Side Menu > Country Charm > Page 6. The one I have used in this template has been resized so it is slightly smaller than the ones shown below and the scallops on the bottom are not as pronounced.
