    My additions to this list:
    making mug rugs and other small projects to gain experience
    advice available when I need it
    all the quilting info that's available here or on other websites
    I agree would love it if they put a like or love button on here-sometimes just those two little words means so much

    I to have learned many things here, and seen some awesome stuff too. Not ironing the binding is a biggy!

    Learning to enlarge the screen is another! My ability working a PC has improved! Getting creative with scraps and being encouraged to finish ALL my UFOs.

    This is just a few things I greatly appreciate. Thank you everyone!

    I too am thankful this board is here! I learned about so much; latest being Wonder Clips. With arthritis getting worse, pinning was becoming a huge problem. Not any more! Those clips are heaven sent. Keep on passing on tips and ideas everyone! I need you input more than you can imagine. Thank you all!

    ditto for me. i have learned so much from this board. WHAT, WE DON'T HAVE TO IRON OUR BINDING BEFORE WE PUT IT ON? NEVER HEARD THAT ONE. what do you do, just fold it in half?
    and have never caught about the elmers glue to layer with. elmer's stick glue i use to make points, and melons, etc. like it better than ironing the edges to freezer paper.

    So when I put on my binding without sewing I do it as follows: I cut the required pieces and sew them together. I leave 12 inches unsewn in the beginning (it is needed for the ending method I was taught) then I just fold it in half and then I start to sew it on with a 1/4 inch seam, I sew about 8 inches and then reposition the edges together and keep going. Easy peasy!

    DITTO to all comments made Even when lurking I get such a great boost! This makes all things quilting possible for me. Sometimes I'm stuck or sometimes down & it always always helps to come here & widen my horizons & met such lovely people.

    I so agree with all your reasons, and many more, too. There is so much support and encouragement to be found here. Plus lots and lots to learn. Glad you mentioned it!

    I share a house with my sister who has no interest in quilting so I get my "chatty" fix from this board! She does drop me at the LQS when we go to Billings,MT. so I can get my fix of fabrics. I have learned so much from all of you thanks for being here .

    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!
    Ditto the information and help from this board is fantastic!!!! HAPPY THANKSGIVING to you and yours Yippie U.S.A.

    Love this place! So much good advice, encouragement and yes, I too feel that I have found many friends. When I have a question, someone has an answer. Love the tuts and links. My day isn't complete without a visit to QB.
    We can be so quick to complain, it's nice to say thanks.
