    Yes, guys are welcome. There are several on the board. My DH helps me with quilting and is super supportive. No one will poke fun of you about quilting here. I actually think there are more guys getting into quilting. You are off to a good start and some of your first projects sure look good. Can't wait to see more.

    Welcome from the Suburbs of Chicago.... and former NYS resident. You first quilt is amazing!!! As for not telling you r freinds you hang out here... your secret is safe with us.
    As for liking the piecing part better than the actual quilting... I consider myself a dedticated piecer .. and found using the services of a long arm pro to be the most liberating experience of my quilting life. .. as for the cost of it... well I would rather eat wish sandwiches ( two slices of bread and you wish you had some meat) for how ever long , so that I never have to deal with a big quilt on my regular machine.
    Just a note .. your first quilt show you have real talent , first in color/fabric selection, pattern choice , and construction. I can't wait to see what comes next ... do share.

    Of course guys are welcome here. your work is beautiful. Ignore the naysayers and enjoy. Some men even make a living at this, look at Ricky Tims or John Flynn.

    i am in awe of your first quilt. great job, and what dedication. i am a firm believer in keeping it simple to start with, that way the project gets finished. 4 patches, 9 patches, log cabins, etc. my two grdsns just collaborated on a queen quilt at xmas last yr. and i have another grdsn who is 26 who wants to learn to quilt.
    and of course you are welcome here. you guys show us ladies up real regular.

    Welcome to the board! Some of the best quilt shows I've been to (like in Sisters, Oregon) have entire sections dedicated to male quilters -- and their quilts are always different and wonderful! You did a great job on your quilt - can't wait to see what you do next!

    I used to feel the same way about the quilting part...in my case it was the fear of messing up the top which I had worked so carefully on. But once I got up the courage to plunge in and quilt (in the ditch) I got so excited to see it turn into a "real quilt" rather than just a pieced fabric. Even now, I have to get into the mood to go into quilting mode. Once I'm ready, I love the quilting too. I haven't done FMQ yet on anything but practice sandwiches, and I also just took a hand quilting class which was a lot of fun. Give yourself time. You'll get to love each aspect of the craft. I've only been quilting for about 4 years.
    Welcome

    Welcome! Can't imagine why you wouldn't be welcomed. Always need a fresh and new opinion and who knows, you might turn out to be the greatest designer and give us all wonderful ideas...Look forward to pictures..

    Wow! Look at all of those points and stars for a first quilt! Looks great. I'm new too. The first one I did was a star pattern but I only did a baby quilt because I wanted to try it. My second quilt was a sampler quilt. Only completed that one with a little help from a friend.
