Default Virtual Quilting Weekend--August 5-August 7, 2016

Welcome! It's time for another Virtual Quilting Weekend. For newcomers, I hope you can join us as we share what we're working on this weekend and encourage each other over. All you do is post what you're working on and feel free to share photos of your projects too. But don't be surprised if you pick up a few ideas for future projects when you see what others are quilting! And for those who are cleaning/organizing their rooms (or shopping those sales this weekend!) yes that counts too!

I have several WIPs (works in process) that I would like to finish this weekend so I won't feel guilty about starting new projects next week.

Before I forget, the next VQW will be September 2-5 (Labor Day for we Americans).

And yes, I realize it's only Thursday but since I'm going to be quilting all day today, I figured I would start the thread a day early!

Oh goody. I have two scrappy quilts on the go. I'm making one top with 16 patch quilt blocks made with 3" squares and the other will be scrappy string blocks using paper towels for foundation. I'm having a blast working on these trying to use up some of this fabric. I made this string block this morning.

Can I join you? I feel quite sheepish doing it, since I'm totally new. But I am already planning on trying to quilt my first quilt this weekend, and it would be nice to have company! I was going to try to post a photo of the finished quilt top (it's the "colored happy" kit by Valori Wells), but can't seem to find the "insert image" icon to do that (maybe can't post photos from my iPhone?)

I am going to try to finish up the Bible bags I have made for my friend who will be going soon to the Philippines.

I'm working on a quilt for my grandson with Apple Hill Farm line of fabric. Tried to post a pic but it says failed. Oh well, maybe I'll get it figured out eventually.

beckyboo1 and McGargantuette, I don't know if this will help you to post pictures or not, but this is what the website tells us to do. And welcome McGargantuette! Of course, you're welcome.

Posting a Picture

To insert a picture in your post, select the “insert image” icon on top of the message box. This icon looks like a framed picture of a tree. Once you select this icon, you have the choice of attaching a file from your computer or entering the url (web address) for the image. Please note that the url must be for the image itself, not the whole website. You can usually get an image url by right-clicking on the picture and selecting “copy image address”.

When you add a picture using the url, there is an option below the uploader that reads “Retrieve remote file and reference locally.” This will save the image file to Quilting Board’s servers rather than link to another website. We recommend leaving this option on, so that the other website cannot change or delete your image.

What a happy surprise to open the menu and see a VQW has started! Thanks Raggiemom. It's always a pleasure. I will be working on whatever suits my fancy, but I'll keep you posted. I love seeing what everyone else is doing.
