I love reading the message board and find it so interesting and helpful. I started quilting last fall and think I'm already hooked on it. Also am getting hooked on the message board and find myself spending lots of time reading and seeing pictures of other quilters' quilts. They inspire me! My avatar is of my first quilt, finished 2 days ago! I learned a lot making it and hope to get better and better at it. Thanks for all the fantastic information you all send in!
