    All of the above....some days I wonder what I'd be doing if I hadn't found this board. Probably bored to death. Sitting watching TV and eating and eating......

    I can't remember how I found the QB. I think just googling. I know little to nothing about quilting but am learning by trial and error. I usually am on the QB every evening after the house is settled and it's quiet. All the "learners" and "knowers" are great, kind and helpful to one another! Thanks everyone...

    Because QB helps promote quilting.
    Ditto and well said!!!

    I love QB because it is the BEST motivator and helps me fill in the slow hours of the day at work (when I have to be away from my sewing machine).
    :)
    Me, too!!!

    And I cannot remember how I found the QB either, but you have all sure helped me a lot when I was panicking about why something was not coming out right. And- it seems like someone is always there, any time of the day or night.

    I Love it for lots of reasons. But most of all everybody shares their mistakes and their accomplishments, and that's great.

    I am a lone quilter...none of my friends or family quilt.

    This is the place I come every day for inspiration, help, tutorials, a good laugh (thanks Ditter) and to be with others that have the same passion for fabric and quilting as I do.

    The people here are so generous with their time, support and expertise....there are no "cliques", plenty of heartwarming pics and we are all welcomed....beginner right through to professional....the artists, the frugals, the traditionalists and the modernists....an eclectic and wonderful assortment (bit like a mammoth box of chocolates or a giant box of fabric scraps).

    So thanks everyone and Long Live the Quilting Board.

    How well you sized us all up! Very heart-warming on a cold night, even in Texas.

    Ditto, ditto, ditto. In reading all these interesting threads there are some really obvious 'common denominators' aren't there. No matter how we arrived, what has kept most of us here is such a strong sense of community. Everyone here starts with a love of quilting, even if it begins with just looking at the beautiful work being shared in the Pictures section. The tutorials are so incredibly well done, questions are asked and answered with respect and courtersy, and the value of the combined knowledge and expertise of 22,000 craftsmen cannot be measured. But my favorite part of the board is that it is genuinely helpful. There is never a sense of competition, just a heartfelt desire to promote and support the quilter's craft. I am so happy to be a part of it.

    I am officially taking names, so that when I get to heaven, I will have my list of people to look up. I have no doubt you will all be there. :thumbup:

    I am not a member of a quilting group, none of my friends quilt and so I don't have anyone to "talk quilting" with so it is my outlet.

    I love the inspiration I get here. No matter what my day has been, it's always better after I've spent a while here.
    MANY THANKS TO EVERYONE!

    I love QB for the fellowship, ideas, encouragement, pictures, inspiration, answers and tutorials. I'm sure there is lots more that I can't put words to.
