Hashtags are a way to "tag" your photos so others can find your photos on a certain topic. I used the hashtag #madronaroad as I instagrammed the progress of my challenge quilt.
Hashtags are also a way for you to search out photos on a topic that you would like to see. I, along with many others, used the hashtag #quiltcon during my trip to Austin last month.
I also used the Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild hashtag #mmqg to entice members with some yummy fabric that I was bringing to our fabric swap.
