    Very well said. I feel the same way. I know when I go to QB, I will learn something that will benefit me in becoming a better quilter.

    I'm fairly new to quilting -- only about 2 years. I love this board for all the wonderful quilters who answer my questions. If I need a question answered, it doesn't take very long for me to get a response from one of you. Thanks to all of you who are so quick to answers the questions when we "newbies" need help!

    I appreciate the trust and open-ness. I love being able to ask a question and get a kind, immediate, helpful answer, and I love the encouragement given to me and that I see given to others. I have learned so much and seen so many beautiful works that have inspired me. I feel like I know some of you, even though I am still a pretty new member!

    I belong to only one other forum on the web and it is run with an iron fist (to prevent spammers, apparently). The information I get there is excellent, but the "feel" is totally different, and you are always very aware that the Mods on that site know waaaaaaay more than you ever will...very very different from QB, and it made me realize how special QB is!

    I say Ditto to all of this, I have learned so much from all these wonderful people. I'm new at quilting and need help and encouragement. So grateful for this site and I read it every morning, lol....sometimes it really makes my day. I seem to know you all even if I don't. This is my favorite place to be when I first get up. Everyone stay safe, healthy and keep sewing, love you all!!!!!!!!
    Life is SEW great!!!!!!

    I simply love everything about the board, I am always talking about the information, patterns, referred links and the beautiful quilts I see here. I don't remember how I stumbled on the site, but I am forever thankful for finding it! I wait every morning (impatiently) for the daily postings and never delete it until I've gone over every inch at least three times. Everyone is so kind and helpful, thank you everyone for sharing you skills with a new quilter who espires to be justs like many of you.

    I have experienced many extremely talented individuals who are so unselfish and giving of their knowledge. The people on this board are quick to help a fellow quilter and ask nothing in return. They are generous in sharing their talents and photos so that the rest of us might be inspired. This board is truly a gift.

    This board is one of the first places I go each morning. I love all the information and pictures. Many days it inspires me to get in the sewing room and get busy. I feel like I am with friends when I am here. I love this board.

    YOU GUYS ARE MAKIN' ME CRY!

    Excuse me while I go get eye wipers. I have learned so much on this board. My favorite thing is finding an address to a site that I can just click on to get a tutorial or a picture. Thank you all sooooo much!

    As a new quilter, when I joined these boards everyone made me feel so welcome. This group of folks is always there to lend a hand and guide you thru what looks so hard to us, but easy to them. Never once have they complained that they have had that same question a million times before, they just answer it with warmth and care. To me this is a very special place, and I visit here more than I should. I would get alot more done!!

    I second this statement. This QB is the most amazing, helpful, inspirational, thoughtful place anywhere on the internet & a lot of that comes from the moderators who share their time etc. to help those of us who need the help.
    The members are the best. I have received so much help from this board that I cannot count the number of times I have been stuck with a problem or whatever & someone here always comes thru for me (& I am sure for many others). Thank you doesn't seem to quite fit the bill but a huge thank you comes from me. The highlight of my day is to check the QB. We, as members owe a huge debt of gratitude to those who are generous with their expertise & I too, hope to reciprocate to others. THANK YOU ALL.

    We live in such a remote area, I had to find 'like-minded' humans to learn from. I love to quilt, and have learned so many tips and tricks, video links, suggestions, and some wonderful personalities on this board. I'm grateful to have you to awaken to each morning with my first cup of coffee. I check this board before I begin my quilting, housework, or even preparing for whatever the day entails. I'm grateful to have you all - and am blessed so many will share information without asking me to open my wallet....

    I joined several quilt yahoo groups but this is the one I love! The people on the QB are caring individuals with a common goal - to enjoy this addiction we call quilting!! Everyone is helpful and I get so much help and information not to mention the inspiration!! Thanks everyone!!

    I wanted to take a minute to thank all of you here on this board for the free sharing of information on products and techniques and sources. I've received the equivalent of a PhD by reading the posts.

    For days now, I've been searching on You Tube for a quilt video I wanted to make. I lost it after a late Saturday night's browsing and had to do a system restore on my computer, which took out my history. This morning, in reading a new post, I went to one of the suggested links and found the thread that took me to the lost video. Thank you!!

    I got to thinking about all the good things I've gotten from this board and so far, my favorites include: pinmoors, Triangulation software (oh the joy!), the June Tailor ruler (make my own jelly rolls), Bailey's longarm quilting machines (in the dream category.)

    What have you found that has made your life, as a quilter sooo much better by finding it on this board?
    I greatly appreciate that this QB and the people on it are so very kind. When life has been hard, I'm always able to get on and find things and people that can make your day (or life), better. I have learned all kinds of sew and quilting tips. I have learned that NO rule is set in STONE. I've found that we ALL differ in our quilting styles and likes, but still have open minds to helping each other with fabric, software, machines, videos or just a shoulder for crying on. Some times the Rat Race gets too much, but the QB can make you laugh or get that UFO finished. My fabric stash has grown and so has my heart with all the kind things that I see and read about every day on the QB.

    I am so grateful to you all.
    I agree wholeheartedly. I start my day with the board and so many ideas form that I can hardly wait to begin sewing. I have learned sooooo much over the last couple years because of you. I, too, have no close quilting friends so the friendship and sharing is fantastic. Thank you one and all !

    Being self taught on sewing/quilting and crafting- its nice to go to a board and learn something new and then implement it. So many wonderful people on the board who share a common interest with hints about this or that- makes it very nice. Then for the "newbie" sometimes a frustrating item to them is a hint from another on here that was learned by accident and passed onto help that new person ..
    Thanks to each and every one of you who started this Board and those who add to it .. from me & Brie ..(the avatar-boss lady of the quilting-who makes sure its right !LOL)

    I like all the tips, generous sharing of knowledge, but most of all, the friendly spirit of all who inhabit this space. Thanks to all who log in on this great space. Thanks to the moderators who give so unselfishly of their time.

    The people of this board are always inspiring, encouraging, helpful, generous, smart, and funny. When in doubt, I always check the board first.

    I am totally amazed at the wealth of information on this quilting board! I have been fortunate enough to have found another common interest with my daughter through this board, strange as that may sound. She gave me this subscription for my birthday and I thank her again every time we see each other!

    I can see I haven't spent enough time on here, though, since I'm not sure what "pinmoors" are, nor "trangulation software". I guess I need to go do some research! lol

    This board is part of my morning ritual. I get up and get my coffee and look at the picture from our quilting family and if I have time I read the rest of the postings. I have learnt so much from this board. I just love it here. I got rid of a lot of my other daily emails as I found this one to be the most satisfying.
    Thank you to you all for making the best board around. Hugs to go with your coffee or tea!!!
