Whether it be information, hugs, prayers, pats on the back, or even sharing of real items it soothes my soul and makes my heart smile.


    For me, Lauriejo's post says it all.

    It is great to be able to post a photo of a quilt in progress and get opinions from you all, and it is rewarding to provide information to new quilters. Sometimes I've received advice that has taken a quilt in an entirely new direction. I love seeing photos of your quilts with dogs and children - they bring a smile to my face.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Continuing friendship with several dear members is my most thankful treasure!!
    Eye candy every day when I see all the pictures of quilts made here.
    Traveling the world from my chair at home with those who share their homes and world with us.
    Tips, tricks, and tutorials freely shared.
    The acceptance and lack of complaint/criticism/condemnation from members on this forum, that's the best!

    You are all such a wonderful group of people who go out of your way to help those who are looking for help in learning our craft. You are there to give support to those who are having problems in their lives. You bring beauty by sharing your art and laughter by sharing your humor. It is a wonderful place to be and I am so happy I found it. Thank you all for being here and thank all of you who work so hard to bring it to us and keep it a good place to be,

    I love this board because I know without all the things I have learned about machine piecing and quilting I would never have made any quilts. Now I am venturing into raw edge applique and freehand drawing my own items for applique. I constantly have new ideas for projects and it's all because when I come you folks open my eyes to all the possibilities. Thank you QB and everyone who shares on this board.

    Amen to that!!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    For me, this board has been a source of inspiration, education, encouragement, knowledge, reassurance, laughter and friendship. Every day I learn something new, see a project I'd like to do one day or find a link to a fabulous website. The amount I have learned in the past couple of months has been incredible.
    I am so grateful to you all.
    Lang may yer lum reek. (I'm a knitter - hence - 'Knit-ette'. Confuses a lot of people!)

    I am so grateful for the inspiration, answers to questions, and generosity of spirit I find here. Like a couple of others have said, I don't have any friends who quilt and my relatives live far away. On this board I can share the excitement of a new sewing machine and commiserate when we run out of a particular fabric. Now, I'm about to do some cyber-quilting today and post a question. :-)

The day I discovered the QuiltingBoard was one of the best days of my life.
    I'm thinking that many of us feel this way...I didn't want to join a guild because I didn't want to be obligated to do anything...I'm still decompressing from several years at a corporate job (translation-in a body cast!) and this Board is where I come to find friendship, information and good ideas. I became a quilter because of the generosity I saw and that generosity continues on this board.
