Here are pics of my quilt in progress. The wonderful ladies at my church are quilting this for me. I checked progress today and looks like it's about 2/3 done. Will be excited to get it back and get binding on it.

Okay am not getting the pictures to load. So sorry!!

The method that works best for me is putting them in the gallery and then copying the thumbnail and pasting it in my post. This link takes you to the technical threads which give you a couple of options.
Hope it helps.

that's what I use except that I copy the picture, rather than the thumbnail, which gives me a larger image in the thread.

Gimpy the dolphin square is part of a family quilt exchange. That will be a whole other story/thread for another day. (God rest my mother). I will be making one more square to represent my daughter. Then it's my hope to learn qayg and put togther for her. But that is a long way down the road. My Avatar is the block that represents me in the exchange. I will work on putting pics in posts someday soon, thanks much for the link. Everyone is so great, friendly, patient and kind. Even if y'all do throw tomatoes and road apples and other goodies. Oh wait. Maybe it's me that throws stuff.

memaw I think everyone around here has a piece of those greens in our stash!

Whoa there galloping Mamu!!! I am not a hand quilter. Just take that frame apart and beat me over the head with it! My sweet little church ladies are quilting it for me. They were begging someone in the congregation for a top so they have a reason to meet one morning a week, drink coffee, chatter, and quilt. I took pity on them and made the top just so they would have an excuse. They are just the sweetest bunch. Unfortunatly, some of them passed away shortly after the top was framed and the "ringleader" had severe medical issues and was out of commission for almost a year. But they are back at it now. And since the top was made for them to do, it gets done when it gets done. Very Happy

Goodness they are having to go so slow you may have to petition Heaven for a 2nd live to get yours done and back to you. LOL. They are sweet, just not fast. But they are moving faster at quilting than I would, so I have NO room to talk.

The quilt will someday grace one of my beds. I have a pastel green room stenciled with fern fronds as a baseboard. Thought those prints and colors would look good in there.

And by the way, Thanks to everyone for letting me play in your sandbox. What fun!
