    I have been reading this for almost a year now. I have admired all the quilts on here. I am new to quilting and will not show the few quilts I have made because they are horrible compared to what you all do. I finally decided to join so I could comment on some of the spectacular quilts I have seen. I am disabled now so I have lots of time to learn to quilt (when my back and hands let me). Everyone is so wonderful and encouraging on this board. You make anybody feel like they could do anything they put their mind to. Thank you all so much.

    I've read it lots of times here that there are NO quilt police. You came to a good place. We all love to quilt and it's so much fun sharing with everyone. My quilts aren't the best either but I enjoy quilting and that's a good thing.

    Hello and welcome from SW Iowa. Glad to have you here. Don't be afraid to show your quilts. We would love to see them. You are your worst critic.

    Welcome from Wisconsin! I read so many topics and love to see all the quilts too. You will love it here! Trust me, I felt the same way about ever showing a quilt because I was afraid mine weren't good enough, but everyone is so kind. I agree with littlehud, you are your worst critic! My 1st wall hanging that I ever made has a huge oops in the middle. But anyways, most people never even notice the pucker until I point it out, so guess what, I won't tell anyone anymore and they think it is nice! :)

    Greetings and welcome from Northern California. The beauty in quilts is they are works of the heart and warm the soul. This makes them priceless treasures to all who are lucky enough to be given one. Delight in what you have created.

    Welcome from Wisconsin! I did not quilt for the longest time thinking I would never get an accurate scant quarter inch seam. Then I decided I wanted to start and my rule is that it just has to be "good enuf". So I have mistakes and goofy things in my quilts and every time I make something I learn a little more. I know this is nothing you haven't heard before but for me it really works! Happy quilting and glad you're on the forum!

    Welcome to the site! Please post pictures of your quilts. I would love to see them. We are all learning here. Beginner quilts are nothing to be ashamed of. Be proud of what you have done.

    Welcome from I guess what I would consider middle NY state :lol:

    We are a very friendly bunch and we are not in a competition here. Please post pictures of your quilts. I find we are often our own worst critics. We like all quilts from the simplest strippy or 9 patch to the most elaborate art quilt. Please do not feel you should not post your quilts because in your mind they can not compare to other peoples. That's just plain silly! Every quilt and quilter has something to offer and this is the place where they are all loved!
