Welcome to a great website where you'll be ooh's and aah'd with your quilt photos, be given all sorts of advice and suggestions when you have a question and just plain all-around friendship.

Where in Florida do you live? I lived in Orlando for 30 years before moving back to the midwest to be closer to my family.

Again, welcome.

I live in the North Port area, South of Sarasota. I am brand new to quilting, but have found that I really love it! Being self taught, I知 not sure what I知 doing most of the time, but have been told I知 doing a good job!
I am also brand new to a forum, and am having trouble figuring out how to use it. Are there any instructions anywhere? I can稚 seem to find photos or tutorials, and frankly, not sure if I知 even sending a reply correctly! 🤷‍♀️
I really hope to get some help and inspiration fir my next quilt. So far, I致e completed 3 quilts! 🤗😉💕💕💕

Welcome aboard, I'm in the Seattle area so about as far a diagonal line as we can draw across the contiguous states.

Posting pictures can be hard for many of us here, we do have a help section here:
https://www.quiltingboard.com/qb-help-center-f27/

For most of us it is that our file size is too large. Although we have a maximum amount of 5 mb per post, each picture needs to be quite a bit smaller. I use this site to reduce my images (I have an old school digital camera). For me, I just drag my picture there, use their defaults to download, and then upload over here.
https://www.reduceimages.com/
I have no affiliation with the site but they are quick, easy, and do not set of my various virus protections and such.

Once you've gotten this far and attached the images, then you have to resize the window that contains the attachments to the far upper right so you can actually click on the upload button. I still miss doing that about half the time. Add to all that and a very short time limit to edit and it often takes several attempts...

But good luck and keep at it -- we love pictures of all projects great and small

Welcome! There is a new quilt store, Bold Notion Quilting, in Brookwood, if that is anywhere near you.
