    So many of you have posted pictures of wonderful quilts.

    The frustrating part now for me is to find "a certain one" again - especially if I didn't think/remember to bookmark it at the time.

    I would like to see each quilt have it's "own" topic - with a name/description of it in the title:

    Examples: Green and yellow fairy quilt for my DGD

    Crazy Log Cabin in limes and purples

    OBW - for SIL - virgin fabric was petunias

    The reason for the suggestion - I want to be able to find it again so I can look at it some more!

    The search feature isn't much help when the title is something like: Another one of my quilts - - - Here's what I've been working on - - - It's Done! - - - -

    The topic of using more descriptive/complete topic lines has come up many times.

    One can always hope????

    I agree, many times I have wished the search feature could check the content of the post, and bookmarks fills up way too quickly! Now we all just need to remember this when we're composing our posts :)

    I try to do that..but many times when I post I don't know what the actual name of the pattern is. SO I make up one.
    If it is my own quilt I always put the name...I also try to put as many details as I can on the post.
    I agree...when I do a search for something we only see a fraction of what has actually been posted....

    Thank you for repeating this and I also hope this sticks. Not just in the Pictures of Quilts category but all posts would benefit from a more descriptive title. My favorite: Help----help with WHAT?? a pattern? naming my cat? If someone puts "help with applique" I know to skip that one; I'd be no help to them but other subjects I may have something to offer.
    I also love it when someone posts the pattern and fabric info with their quilt pic.
    Let's keep our fingers crossed that more people follow this suggestion.

    It would be nice and I do try to make it more descriptive. But there are times when I like the surprise when I click on a post and it isn't at all what I expected.

    :thumbup: If you take the time to pick a pattern, pick fabric, pick a quilting motif, take time to put it all together, I think it is worth the little bit of time it takes to post the information to identify your hard work. Including the pattern and where it was from is very useful too. I do try!
    We have to be more organized than my studio!
    peace
