I hope this works correctly. I did not remember how to save and didn't see a save. Nancy should a picture be visible when I preview or just the links?

The Harry Potter and Star Trek quilts are some I had started for the grands, but it was...oh I don't care for that any longer, or it doesn't match my room. really??? Anyway, I have tried mt hand at quilting these just on my sewing machine. My quilts started with squared corners, but somehow I did pick up some wonkiness. The duck or goose has the waves through the panel, and just stitch in the ditch in the two other areas, Harry Potter has a diagonal stitch though the panel and stitch in the ditch. The Star Trek quilt is a combo of diagonals and stitch in the ditch.

This was good practice in quilting, now if I could have had a windless photo op, and a more guided assistant! But, hey, I will keep him! I do think with the arthritis in my hands, I should try to find an inexpensive quilting machine for charity quilts. I can't pay for quilting the charity quilts..

Linda, I resized them and added them where you could see them. As to your question about being able to see the pictures when you preview them and not just links is, yes, you should see them.

Sylvia, thank you so much for doing this. Do you remember what size you used! I did a 640, and this morning, my brain can think better and know now I should have looked at Nancy's first post on this! But, a huge thank you!!! Linda

Linda, I did a 320 x 240 on the size. That size seems to upload fine here, that is what I usually did when I posted pictures here. I use a free program called Fast Stone Image Viewer. It is simple to use.
I like your quilts by the way, I forgot to say that after I fixed them where you could look at them easier without having to click on the links. :lol:

Sylvia, thankyou for the size. I need to mark that down someplace! But, do you ever forget where you put those precious notes!!! I used the program Imgbb that Nancy talked about. It was soooo easy the first time. I did get the save figured out...and I am sure my problem was that the file was too large at 640. Thank you again for your help, so people could view them easily.

Linda, 640x 480 will load, we only have so much space here in computer land. I don't think a straight 640x640 would work.

I used the scale 640 x480 the auto formula. It didn't work this time for whatever reason. I know the first time I used what Nancy suggested....before I could check that out Sylvia was kind enough to do it for me. I so appreciate her help.

It is always quirky when someone is doing something new and different! I'm just happy to have been able to post a pic that someone could work out for me.

Thank you for all your nice comments. I'm not sure how many our guild did. We should get a count tomorrow at our sewing day! The other area guild did a total of 40. What wonderful worker bees!!!
