    nhweaver asks a reasonable question.
    so far, the answers have been factual, informative and respectful.

    no demerits or detention slips necessary.

    I subscribe to other blogs, but this is the one I can't wait to read every morning. I confess, I'm a lurker. However, I have learned so much from reading the posts on this blog. I gotta admit, the folks around here are so helpful and are so very nice. I get more satisfaction here, than I do at my local guild. Thank you Quilting Board members!

    I have signed up for a few others, but honestly have never visited them but the one time. This is home for me.

    I discovered this board when I did a google search for a particular fabric that I needed to finish a quilt. I'd tried the manufacturer and a slew of fabric sites, but there was a photo of it here in the for sale section. In order to buy it, I had to sign on as a member. Now I'm here twice a day looking at others' projects and getting inspired to try new patterns, new color combinations and getting great advice all around. No need for other boards.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    No, this is my one quilting board.
    I want to thank ohiobuckeye who noted the site about what quilters are blogging about today. That is a fun site.

    I've never felt the need to expand to other quilt boards as here I've found comraderie, talent, joy (and even some tears). You are all so open and wonderful and I'm happy to share part of my day with you.

    Used to belong to a small, local quilt group which had too many critics in it. Joined a guild but, have since dropped out. I learn alot from everyone on here and have grown tremendously during my 3 years on this board. Although, the change from the original did trip me up for a while. LOL

    No other boards for me. I simply don't have the time. I do subscribe to The Quilt Show and I think its worth every penny. I learn all kinds of new things way cheaper than taking classes all the time . And I can go back to the very beginning any time I choose.

    THIS IS THE ONE!!!!! This is my morning fix for sure and the best one out there. I remember not too long ago when the format changed and many said they were leaving and didn't like it. Yes, it was a change and now we are all used to it. And I for one did look at some others, but nothing out there compares to home!!! This group is the BEST and most informative and just all around family. I don't post much, but you can bet that I am here every morning first thing. I love looking at your pictures, someday I will get it together and try to post too. Thanks to all of you.....
    Happy Quilting.....QuiltSister....C.

    If you remember, this is what you told me to say when I thought it might go there. LOL.
    GOod to see you here. When you posted, I got a few pm's saying Oh-oh........
    Had to explain this to them.
    Nope no turnip truck for you......

    SO glad we don't have demerits or detention slips. I personally haven't been to the principal's office in over a year.


    I may have been born at night, but not last night. ROFL.

    Besides, it's Janet's/Ghostrider's fault. I like to follow her around.....She mentioned something I posted last year and I had to come and check it out. LOL. GOing to my time out chair now....

    I too prefer the online grouping as stated no politics, mean nasty people etc.. This way I can learn something new and then practice it without someone saying you didn't do this right or that .. If I ask for help that is one thing, but to have someone just come up look at my quilt and tell me things . Ummmmm.. well no thanks I'll pass. NOT big at all on the backstabbing thing either.. (found out I didn't like the guild thing after a few rude women well .. ya know don't need to bring that old subject out!LOL). Don't get me wrong a few friends from the guild and I do get together for quilting about every 3 months as time permits for all of us. We ask for ideas, help and tips from each other, we feel each others input is invaluable. When one has a problem we put our heads together to solve it, and move forward.
    That is why I like the board here, helpful hints and when someone needs help and asks for it- everyone rallys to help out not criticize. Have pm'd with some "most wonderful" people on here and love it.

    I have never liked or read blogs - that is until this one. I find every one here is so helpful and polite that I never even thought to look somewhere else. Can't imagine that I could learn anything anywhere else that I can't learn here.
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, WINE IN THE OTHER, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!"

    Hi Everyone,

    Have to agree with 2 blackcats. I found this blog by accident and never looked back. I also have received much good advice and enjoy seeing the pictures of quilts. Just had to add my "two cents" worth.

    When I first moved here to Tn I went to our Club House here and they have a quilting group that meets once a month. I thought yes that is a good way to get some info and also to meet some people. Oh no, I didn't stay very long, (this is mostly a retirement place where I live even though the most land you can purchase is 5 acres), anyway I am not from Florida and my husband was not a policeman so needless to say we were not very welcome. When they found out we both retired from the Post Office I guess they thought I would go postal. I know get all my info from this board.

    I, too, have meandered around some and visited other quilting sites. But this is the one I come to every day to visit with my friends while having coffee. I think it is the best run also. Kudos to the facilitators.

    I did a search for "quilt forums". There are quite a few. Looked over all the ones on the first page of the search and was not impressed at all. They are not up to the quality I expect, you have forever changed how I look at forums. I expect a forum to be easy to navigate, have tips, instructions, comments etc.. I'm happy here!

    This board is my one and only. I have learned so much from all of you. It's amazing. This is how I spend my lunch hour at work. Thanks always for sharing your knowledge.

    I also belong to quilting haven, but didn't find the friendliness or skill level that exists here. If I have a question/issue, I KNOW I will be able to get the answer here, so why even try anywhere else?
