    so sorry -- I read posts and look at the pix and sign in awe and admiration but usually don't reply -- you are loved and your work is appreciated and admired

    I often don't comment but just look at everyones pictures, and
    aahh! I usually don't have time to comment but please don't take it personally. We all love seeing the quilts and you have no
    idea how much inspiration you send everyones way. Quilter's
    are busy people, but they have the heart of friendship that is
    unspoken. Keep up the good work, and keep posting!!!

    I work full time and have 7 children. I don't always have time to reply, but LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this site. I hope I have not offended anyone by NOT posting a reply! :)

    This is why I usually avoid making comments on quilts. I don't have the time to comment on all of them and I don't want anybody feeling left out or hurt. Sometimes I comment and almost always feel bad afterward because I'm wondering who is feeling slighted.

    Sorry your feelings are hurt. Any quilt that anyone finishes is a work of art to me, even if I don't reply. I don't even know how to show a pic of what I have done so you are way ahead of me. Will be looking forward to seeing more of your work! :oops:

    I was thinking the same thing about my entries--I have only once gotten a reaction and that was by two ladies who answered a question within an hour of my post. I was so grateful to them as it helped me. But I have decided that I have learned so much from others and their pictures and posts that I am not going to worry about it. And I have to say, I don't often comment on pictures of others' quilts although I do admire them and think they are beautiful. I will try to do better.

    I feel your pain...I'm sort of a newbie in posting...I lurked for several months just reading...sometimes I think my posts don't get a good number of responses. Maybe it has something to do with being on a "buddy list" too...maybe the photos that get lots of traffic are from the same folks who check their buddy lists...or maybe I'm way, way off....

    On the plus side though...I've been searching for two quilt kits for YEARS and within a day of posting I had offers from folks who had them and would part with them. So..forget everything I said...it's probably just timing and coincidence....lol....

    anyway...stay...I'll make it a point to watch for your photos!

    I'm glad you've gotten so many responses to this post. I know I have limited time to comment on every post. I love to see the pictures, too, but only have a few minutes to post responses, so I only post a comment on one or two. I hope you don't quit posting! I'm thrilled to see so many examples of what people are doing and learning.

    I have to agree, there are many, many posts, and reading blogs. I am sorry if I may miss yours It's nothing intentional. I am sure others feel the same way

    I might also add, that I usually don't comment on anyone's quilt. I could not possibly have enough time in the day to get to everyone. I am sorry that your feeling down about this and hope you don't leave the group

    Click on the poster's screenname to the left of their post. There will be a "topics posted" list there that you can click on.
    Thank you.
    OK, I found out how to go back and look at posts. You do beautiful work, but for the life of me I don't remember ever seeing your table runner...which I love!...so I am assuming I am missing a lot of posts. I find myself just going to "recent topics" hoping to catch the highlights. So many quilts pics and so little time. LOL Keep posting!

    I sent you pm and forgot to tell you that I lived in Pasadena for 37 years. My home was on 659 Saint John Ave. At the corner od Congress and St John. One block from California and Orange Grove. I miss my home and Pasadena. I have wonderful memories there.

    When I put a topic up it never shows on the list of topics, I don't know what I do wrong it doesn,t get many returns and I don't know how the people that responded found it, that leads me to believe I miss alot. Maybe yours is the same.

    This is the first time I have ever responded to a post. I just put my first pic post on yesterday. I had about 12 -15 replys which I thought was great. Please don't take how many relpys you get personally. I have very much enjoyed watching the board and am amazed by the support everyone recieves. Please know that I am glad you post and respond to the topics. This is a great community.

    I don't always have time to look at all the pictures or posts-I spend too much time on here as it is. And if I do look at them, I don't always have time to post something everytime. I'm sorry that your feelings were hurt-it happens to most of us. Keep on quilting and posting-don't give up!

    Wow have I ever been missing out. Spend so much time on here but missing articles. I do need to sleep etc. never mind do some quilting.
    I can not respond to all but I do some. Apparently it depends on where you click to get articles as now that I went back I found many I never saw listed. I'm here hrs everyday and can not keep this schedule.

    Please don't feel hurt as all people that send in are actually being a great help and support to so many others
    like myself that need you and your inspiration.
    Sending hugs.

    I'm new to this board and know that I enjoy reading the comments after I have posted. But, if you click on "My Topics" after you log in, you can see how many times your posting has been viewed. I guess that not everyone is going to comment, but it's great to see how many have acutally looked at the posting. I have found, in the short time I've been here, that this is a great group of ladies and their knowledge is priceless! I'm glad you're a member ... keep on posting!

    I am sorry you are feeling hurt. I don't think the number of responses has much to do with how good one's quilt is or not. I often go through the pictures (like now) before bed and enjoy all of them. I rarely post a comment. However, from now on maybe I will at least give a thumbs up to let people know I care. :-) :thumbup:

    I think it may be the time of day. I posted pictures once in the evening and didn't see them on the main picture board the next day. I, too, had less comments than I see others receiving.

    If I see quite a number of posts saying the same things I would say, I don't bother to post. Doesn't mean I don't have an opinion, I just don't want to repeat what's already been said, especially if I need to be doing something else and time keeps flying by as I spend time on the board.

    I am on this site every night, mostly I come to see everyone's work. It gives me inspiration to do more quilts and try new techniques.

    To be honest I rarely comment on them. When I do it is usually on the ones that have received the least amount of responses. I would like to comment on everyone's but I don't have the time.

    Please don't stop posting everyone is reading and seeing your work, don't take silence as a bad thing. This is a great forum and would not exist if we stopped posting.

    I am like many others. I look but don't comment to much. I love seeing all the quilts and everybody's ideas. As of this date, I have not made a post to show anything I've done. Think many people are that way. Time is an issue with me for sure. Please know that most people really do enjoy everything they see - but most don't post.

    But when I post a picture of my latest completed project, I have found that I get a very minimal response from the rest of the board. Most pictures get over 100 responses, many get much more than that, while mine have been averaging under 20. This has happened so many times that I am forced to wonder if there is some unwritten rule I am breaking that I don't know about. I wouldn't ask, except that it happens every time. It's starting to bug me a bit, even hurt my feelings a little.

    I love this board, but I'm not really feeling the love in return. Please be honest, is it me?

    Please don't get your feelings hurt...I'm sure no one meant that to happen! If you will notice, the same people remark every time. If I view a quilt and there are already 8 pages of comments, I don't bother to say anything. I'm sure someone has already conveyed my feelings! I've tried many times for a PIF and am never on the board at the right time. We all love you and your work!

    Thanks for the mini-lesson. I actually couldn't get to the posts either. How quick and easy.

    Click on the poster's screenname to the left of their post. There will be a "topics posted" list there that you can click on.

    I agree with all the points everyone in this 10 page (presently) post has made.
    I have felt like some of my posts were ignored or sidestepped. I have felt like I get more responses to my posts when my profile photo is my hummingbirds than I do when it is a photo of me. I have felt like my responses in posts shut the posts down. The discussion will be zinging away like mad, I make my response and no one comes behind me in the post and makes another comment. This has happened repeatedly.
    I used to make a great effort to welcome the new members and compliment the quilts I love. I have almost stopped posting because of the many posts I have read that give a negative view of 'one word responses', 'redundant responses', 'can't help you but wanted to let you know I care that you live and breathe' responses,. You get my drift. I have been an active member since joining and each time I read one of those posts giving a negative view of these things it sets me back for awhile. I want to say a quilt is 'awesome, beautiful, adorable, etc.' but my fingers won't do the walking.
    I apologize that you and many others are not complimented on your work or given help when asked.
