    Was at a quilt retreat at Our House in Milford, TX and one of the attendees showed us a tutorial on QB, I signed up that day. A couple of months later I took the time to really explore and I've been hooked since then. Spend way too much time pursuing the board.

    I started out on another blog but they had to many negative post on shops,people,that I didn't enjoy. Then I saw a post on it form a member on here she motioned this site. So I started LURKING on it. To say the least I quite the other BLOG and I spend all my time on this one I LOVE IT. If something is posted not quite right It vanishes Thanks to great team here.

    I found it by accident too. I think this is such a positive blog, the photos of quilts made are exceptional and truly inspiring. Everyone is very encouraging and helpful. Like one giant family with one thing in common to begin with and so much more when you get deeper. If someone needs something be it cards (which I had requested for my daughter in the army) or quilt blocks for a sick friend the response to participate is amazing. Best accident I have ever had. I too by the way spend oodles of time here but its not TOO much time. How can it be too much if it feels so right?

    Can't remember, but it got (is getting!) me through recovery from bilateral total knee replacements and has inspired me so much that I have finished 3 quilts and started 2 more since coming home from the hospital last
    september! OK I am not a fast quilter (piecer), but I used to do only one or two a year! Love this place.

    DITTO :thumbup: :lol:
    In fact .... It is so bad that I am answering from my phone (blackberry) because I have had so much going on for the last weeks that I can't get to the sewing machine or computer! This board is keeping me sane!

    By accident, don't remember exactly how I found it, must have been looking for something quilt related.

    Well let's see! I was pregnant with little man and my hormones were going wacky giving me daily panic attacks. I didn't sleep much and had to find something to occupy my mind. I sat at the computer all night long several nights a week. I typed in quilting in yahoo search and it took me here. I lurked for 3yrs. before becoming a member. If they ever locked me out I would probably lose my mind.

    Was on a year long search for block swaps. Gave up searching for "swaps" and typed "forum" Up it came, and to my delight had a swap section!!!! knew I was in the right place, joined a few weeks ago, and have been here daily. It just amazes me how much is available on this site, and the people are truely wonderful.

    I can't remember, but must have just been surfing the net, probably looking for baby quilt patterns. I love this Board. It has become a friend to me and a daily learning experience. I just LOVE it here!!!
