Quilting is a sewing method done to join two or more layers of material together to make a thicker padded material. A quilter is the name given to someone who works at quilting.

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

Beryl's Quilts Template Info

Download Beryl's Quilts Web Package.  Instructions.

his 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.

Images:

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.

Quilt images in the right and left sidebar are sample images from Fotolia.com. If you choose to use any of them, you will need to purchase them. 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. I have included the tlc file so you can edit if you want. The font used is Ravenscroft, the color is #B9AD98, and the background color is #425242.

Photo Gallery

All images used in the Photo Gallery demo are from fotolia.com and MUST BE PURCHASED if you choose to use any of them. It is assumed that you will use your own images for creating the Photo Gallery.

Additional Resources

You can find detailed instructions for working with the mobile friendly site templates as well as a pdf file you can download and print.

Also resources on both drop shadows and rounded corners.

Gotcha's

You will need to preview your page within a browser as Design View will NOT display the page as it should look.

Depending on the length of your content, you may find it difficult to edit your pages in Design View.

Validation

The XHTML code validates. Because the external style sheet uses some CSS3, it does not validate. However the CSS3 style rules used degrade gracefully in older browsers and you will see rectangular corners rather than the rounded corners the more modern browsers display.

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.
