You have an annoying habit of ending an object [i]just[/i] within your tile. Try to extend at least one shape past each border to provide something solid for a neighbor to blend.
Well ya know, I thought about it. But since I've apparently done it in every tile so far, why change now? Maybe I'll make it my trademark. Enjoy.
sure it's fun to get interesting and seemingly 'recognizable' objects on the edges you receive, and in general it's a good idea to do so. but i don't mind if objects are completed on the other side of the border sometimes. it gives an idea of what might be there, without insisting that i continue it, so i can pretty much do what i want on those tiles. what i find frustrating is when a totally nondescript object begins just a few pixels before it gets to my edge. i mean rather than just putting a blob at the edge for the next guy/gal to deal with, sometimes it's okay that just the background is passed on to the next person.
Quite a few of the tiles I've checked out haven't had anything in their borders except for a few variations of color or just a piece of an object. I don't mind what I get, I haven't bitched at anyone yet. When I don't have much to go from or have a hard time with an edge is usually when I tend to stick something more towards the middle to hopefully draw the eye away from a crappy blend. Obviously it happens alot. And I occasionally let my oldest daughter help out on tiles too (she's 13). I finally kicked her out of my seat and had her go make a tile under her own account. She checked in her first tile last night, fixed it today and it's up on the newb quilt.
what your daughters nick?... i think that's great that you two tile together ;o)
Slice is brand new and posted last night... is it "Slice"?
Nope, it's Bubblezz (Kortnie). :-)
