    Hi! I'm Renee from San Antonio, and finally had mustered up the courage to join this forum. I have to confess that I've been keeping up with posts for several months - guess that makes me an x-lurker.

    I've been part of forums before, but it seemed like there were always a few that made the conversations hurtful to some, so had sworn to never join one again. But y'all are wonderful!

    I've learned so much from all of you by reading your posts, and always feel motivated to continue with my quilting when I see the beautiful things y'all have made!

    I've only been quilting since the first of the year, and have learned a lot already. I have so much more to learn.

    Quilting is my form of meditiation. Getting nice and quiet and working on a quilt is about as good as it gets. (Except when my grandbabies are here to play!)

    I'll post some pictures of my finished projects when I figure out how to do that.

    Nice meeting y'all! :lol:

    Welcome Renee. I'm new here too and already I've learned so much. Aren't the projects and pictures wonderful? I too was afraid to join, but I'm glad I did, and glad you did.

    Greetings from central Illinois! I've just recently joined and am having fun. I've not been a part of other online forums -- wasn't really interested -- but I got pulled in here after clicking on popular threads included in Quilter's Paradise online newsletter. I love the positive atmosphere and the humor and encouragement. I'm not an experienced quilter and I'm learning so much. Please do post your pictures! We love photos!
