Default I had to quit looking at the Pictures Section

The Pictures Section is my favorite section, but I had to quit looking there. I decided not to buy anymore fabric except backing and when I look at everyone's quilts, I usually end up asking what fabric line their quilt was made from and automatically buy lots of that fabric. So, sadly, I can't go to Pictures. I've done well so far. I only bought fabric for a baby quilt for my pregnant niece. Usually I'm getting packages in the mail daily. But I miss everyone's pictures. Anyone else have this problem? :-(

I quit looking for two reasons:
1. Even the "my first quilt" were better than mine!
2. I can't load my own pictures onto this site. I know, I'm so computer illiterate. I can do it on other sites but not here.

Hi Jeanne! I have been on a fabric diet for a year now and have only stumbled a couple of times. I still go to the pictures section because I love to see what beauties everyone is making. I have, however, quit downloading patterns. I have so many quilts planned in my head there just isn't room for anymore! If I stumble across a quilt pattern that I really like, I just pin it to my Pinterest board. I've also given myself permission to NOT finish everything I start. I never make the same quilt pattern twice so each new project is trying a new block or technique. If I find it too difficult or I just don't like it, I don't force myself to finish it. I keep all the fabric for the project with the unfinished top because who knows, I might decide later down the road to finish it. So many quilts, so little time to work on something that doesn't make me happy! I have also started just making quilt tops (flimsy). Piecing is what makes me happy, following the quilt to completion- not so much! But if I needed a finished quilt quickly, I can throw one together pretty quickly from my flimsy stash!

If the computer requires me to do more than just click on a tab, I am lost. I cannot load pictures from my computer to QB. I can load directly from pictures taken with my iPad because you just click on the little tree and then follow the prompts. I am trying to finish UFO's this year and only buying fabric to complete them.

I have cut back on my fabric buying for the last year. I did that by staying away from fabric stores, unless I need something to finish a project or on vacation. I have a good stash, so don't need much.
Tartan, can you please PM me, so I can find the little tree icon. I need to learn how to download my pics from my I-pad. I keep looking for the tree icon, but can never find it. Thank-you.

I'm not Tartan but, the Tree icon is the 3rd from the right at the top of the 'quick reply' box.

PICTURES is the first place I look when I get into the QB!! I've cut back considereably on the fabric buying but it's the printing of the patterns and pretty pictures of quilts I need to work on. My binders are piling up! I can't do pictures and I don't know how to save to the computer, so that's the price I pay. So I will continue to get inspiration from all of the talented quilters on this board.

I know what you mean about the pictures, but it is the first place I go. Trying to stay strong and just enjoying everyone else's work. So beautiful.

I try and have my morning coffee with the pictures from the QB. I get a lot of inspiration for my quilts from here - it helps me to use up the fabric I already have. "Resistance is futile" according to the Borg and that about sums it up for me

I'm not one to look at pictures..... guilty!! I'm sure they are wonderful but I just look at Main, Vintage and UFO challenge mostly. If I spend too much time on the computer, I don't spend as much time sewing. That's a problem when I need to get things done.

But, I think I'll check out the pictures this morning.......
