    3) That I do not have to iron my binding before sewing it on
    4) Tutorials - I have used about 4 of them!
    5) Pictures - I am a visual learner and I love having my morning coffee and looking at all our creations
    6) The ability to buy and sell - why not support our sister/fella quilters
    7) Encouragement and recognition that my personal quilting is not too shabby
    8) The ability to help others when they are in need of a block or two, or to know where to find something

    It was Canadian Thanksgiving yesterday and I am thankful for all of you!
    I couldn't agree more. Since I became a member it has given me so much help & inspiration that it would take me forever to list all my thank yous. I had so much trouble with a quilt I was making when I first joined this Board (I was a newbie then & probably will be for a while yet) & my DH suggested I put it out there on this forum. I had answers from across this fantastic world & they were all so helpful & helped me finish the quilt. Thank you to all & the other thing is I love looking at everyone's wonderful quilts. They are such an inspiration.

    Well said carslo. Many times I have said that even though I have been at a machine most of my life, this board has taught me so much.

    And for QB members like you, Carslo, who have blogs where I can roam even more & see more beautiful work, such as your watercolor & Box of Chocates.

    I too appreciate the education we get from each other for FREE! Such lovely people, always willing to help and sometimes keep us from making mistakes by being willing to tell us what they did that didn't work as well as all the wonderful suggestions for things that do work. Love the tutorials, pictures, funny stuff, and just general comraderie. Thanks so much to all of you for taking the time to make my day!

    I certainly agree with all of you and want to thank you all. My 85 year old mom says she doesn't know how I quilt all alone. I do not have friends outside of QB that quilt and I do not belong to a guild. In her time thay all got together to quilt each others quilts. I remember playing underneath the quilt they would be working on. She had 4 or 5 quilting friends. What do we have here, 100's if not more? I don't feel like I am alone. I don't post much but I certainly enjoy my time with you each morning and sometimes night.
    SEW MUCH FUN!

    Well, I can't read this and fail to add my thanks and agree with all the comments made here already! I was also a new quilter when I found this board and there is just no putting into words the world of difference it has made having all the encouragement and support that we find here.
    But for me the main thing is acceptance and courage to be myself in my quilting and to keep letting my fabrics talk to me and not be afraid to listen. LOL... I make some fairly "unique" quilts and you are all so supportive and that means so much!!
    I also love having the opportunity here to reach out to others and share ideas, fabrics and my support when it's needed.

    Like Rhonda Lee, all of you are my quilting friends. Right after I started quilting, at age 75, I discovered this board. I have learned so very much here! Were it not for you, I probably would have given up on quilting. Now I quilt, at least for a few minutes every day. I have lots of work in progress and am having so much fun quilting. When I have a quilting question, I look here. So far, I haven't had to ask, the answers are already here. I always check the Board on my iPad when I get in bed. The Board is my favorite bedtime reading! Thanks to all of you for being the very best friends ever!

    I've learned so many things I can't even begin to count. And the great think is you keep learning new things like this one.

    And a big thanks to the moderators who keep the board running smoothly, who put up with all our complaints at the beginning with the new forum (which turned out to be much better I might add ... change is SO hard) and who keep us all in line!

    DITTO....DITTO....DITTO..... It was a great day when i found this Board !! There's lots of unpleasant "stuff" out there in the world....but coming here to the Board...seeing the beauty that's being created ... sharing ideas, tips, trucks....getting support...laughing.... sometimes crying.... it's a great community of wonderful folks. So thank you one and all.
    Of all the things i've lost, i miss my mind the most.

    I am new to quilting (took classes last Mar) & I, too, have a great appreciation for all of you. Each time I log in (everyday) I learn new things. We are full-time RV'ers so I don't have a LQS (every store is a LQS for me !) or friend to share things with so I rely on input from this Board. Thanks.

    I for one have learned a lot and continue to learn, if you are reading this then YOU are awsome! I have also had the chain-reaction learning where something someone does or says triggers another thought/idea that I never would have thought of on my own. The quilts here are outstanding. Because of the techniques I have learned I am proud of the things I make and realize they don't have to be perfect to be loved. Like others I start my day or relax after work with all of you, thanks to the funny post that give you that chuckle, Ditter43 comes to mind but I know there are others as well, sometimes its just the way things are written. what a great group of caring people and I'm glad to be a part of. Thanks to the moderators that keep this a positive place to be. open 24/7 what could be better?

    I also have to chime in. Ditto to what all of the other posters have said. The QB is the best. I have made so many virtual friends and one very best friend on the QB. Every day I am so inspired by all of the wonderful quilts that are shared, the quilting hints. Oh, I could go on and on.

    Amen to all of the above. I don't have any quilting friends around me either, so you guys are all my quilting friends. I like the fact that I can ask a question about fabric, quilting, a vintage machine or something totally off the wall, and I get so many answers. Thanks to all of y'all, and many, many thanks for the QB!

    I constantly learn and am amazing at the loving remarks and encouragement so freely offered. That is the most wonderful part of the fourm. The rest is the cake under that icing. (Gosh...hope that made sense)
