    Default 1888 Singer Improved Family with Apple Blossom Decals

    Hi everyone! I've finally finished my 1888 Singer Improved Family machine with Apple Blossom decals. For some reason I'm not able to upload a picture right now but a bunch of pics are available for viewing on my blog.

    Shucky darn. For some reason my ancient computer and browser won't bring them up. A possible reason you are having trouble posting here is the size. When you start to add an image it says the maximum size is 5MB, but they won't load unless they are smaller than 2MB.

    Just for a refresher for posting on QB -
    We like pictures. In order to post pictures on Quilting Board, you will probably need to reduce or compress the picture to a file size that is smaller than 2MB. How to post images can be found at https://www.quiltingboard.com/attach...020-01-17-.pdf
    Don't forget to scroll over to the far right to find and click on the "Upload" button.

    I have found that only the big red "Reply" button or "Quote" work to give me the paper clip icon to work for adding pictures.

    Some additional info regarding reducing images at post #4 and images for the scroll and upload button can be found at #5 of quilt block ID?

    Another way to post pictures can be found at 2021/2022, 2.5 Birthday Swap

    Or simply - Make sure pictures are smaller than 2MB
    Click on red "Reply" button
    Click on the paper clip icon
    Click browse - choose picture/s. (only 5 allowed per post)
    Once they show up as being loaded, Scroll over to the right side and click on "Upload"
    After the pictures show up as being attached, you can close that window and go back to the screen to finish posting your post.

    that is a real beauty, you've got some neat machines in your collection - some of the rarer decal patterns.

    If you ever head to South Dakota, let me know. I moved a few years ago and downsized from about 150 to 100 machines, and am going to be needing to downsize again for a "big" move when I retire (moving to GA).
