    Masterpieces of art

    While looking over pictures on this site I have come to the conclusion that this board appears to be for professional quilters that want to showcase their talents. The workmanship is superb and the quilting is out of this world - something that I would never be talented enough to do or afford to have done.

    With that being said, I do enjoy looking at all of your beautiful masterpieces of art.

    I used to post some of my things when the site was easier to use, but will probably not be doing much of that considering that my photos do not want to load and it is a pain to use - not to mention that my work is, shall we say, not up to the standards that I see here.

    I still enjoy trying to improve my talents and will probably continue to look at your works of art.

    Thank you for bringing much joy to my tired ol' eyes.

    Do not sell yourself short! There are quilters of every level on this board and I can only speak for myself but I like to see quilts made by everyone, no matter the quilters ability.

    I'll second what AuntPiggy has said.


    KSue, If you feel that this is only for professional quilters, then I'm not sure why? I've been here for over a year and have never had that feeling. There's a lot of us regular, average-Joe's or or should I say Josie's here
    .
    I'm a long way from being a professional quilter ... and have no aspirations to become one.


    As for posting of pictures, there's been many helpful threads about this in the Help Centre. Here's a link to the Archives ...

    I'm far from a geek, and figured it out from How To;s that others shared.

    Oh come on, we want to see yours too! I also love to see all kinds of quilts and enjoy them all. I've seen so many quilts where the simplicity just appealed to me so much. We are a very diverse group with many levels of expertise and probably the most friendly forum I've seen

    I think there are several levels of ability on this board. We want to see yours, too. I haven't posted any pictures lately because I haven't figured out how to re-size on my new computer. Hubby thinks he has so will try that later this week, when I'm done taking care of the cherries on my tree. Please, Please don't give up showing us your work.

    I dont show my quilts , but I do not have a camera. And I am not a quilter I just make them, an put them together. My Family loves them an that is all that counts in my mind. And I love to see all the beautiful quilts on here. And I mean all. Some people just sew better ,but that is fine, as long as you enjoy making them. So have fun do your thing an love all quilts. joyce j

    I think quilt photos are often a little deceptive, too. I've seen quilts that had lots of easily visible problems when seen "in person" turn out looking much more polished in the photo!

    Well, I can honestly say I am not a professional quilter. Had my first quilt lesson middle of Janiary 2012. So approximately 6 months ago I started my first quilt. I am fortunate that I recently retired and so have time to devote to as much quilting as this old body can tolerate. I do have to say I am proud of the quilts I have completed!!
