    I really enjoy the people. I learn so much on here. Also it is a nice place to come when you have just had 3 teeth pulled and have don't feel like quilting. lol

    It's nice to share your work with people who appreciate what goes into the process. I think people in general can't tell the difference between a pieced block and a printed one. Quilters "get it" even if they don't particularly like it.

    On the flipside, it's wonderful to see other peoples creations. I've learned so much and am constantly inspired.

    I like QB for all the good info and reinforcement that we all pretty much feel the same way about quilting and I love to look at all the quilts people make and it's just been a very nice experience so far.

    Sorry to hear you've been in pain. Hope you're better and back to stitching soon.

    ...it's so friendly. where else do we get problems listened to, sometimes solved, loads of advice - the kind you pay heed to!- praise of all our sewing efforts, self esteem boosted, ..everyone is so lovely, a community of people with quilting in common but with such diversity that every aspect is touched upon. The only downside is that I spend so much time here reading, oohing & aahing at pictures, replying to some posts that time at my sewing machine has reduced. Not complaining though!!

    where else can I come and tell folks I just bought a 60 degree triangle ruler 'cuz I'm so excited by OBW's and can't wait to try them or that I also just got a 1/4 inch paper piecing ruler for the same reason and everyone *gets* it?

    or who else will tell where every fabric store that's having a sale is?

    or tell me about a great new cutting board called Alvin that I love?

    an then there's the tutes, how-to's, encouragement,...

    what's not to love?????

    The same for me too. I love the friendship and helpful hints given to who ever requests help. I been into all the links provided and found some great free quilt patterns which I print out or book mark the page so I can keep going back for more information. that is how I found QB in the first place.

    I love the QB because all skill levels are represented and nobody is turned away. There are amazing postive vibes here, too... And so many points of view. It sort of helps one to think outside the box, or re-evaulate one's own perspective.
    I have seen one nasty conversation, but I will stick to my original generalization about this great bunch of ladies & gentlemen.

    I like this QB for the friendliness, inspiration, wittiness, motivation education, imagination, examples, insight, artistry, friendliness, eagerness to share, encouragement, friendliness, (oh did I say friendliness? I really mean it). I thoroughly like this QB!!!

    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).

    I used to belong to a quilt guild in Ohio. It met once a month for 2 hours. The first hour was spent re-hashing the minutes from the last meeting. I joined to learn from those who had more knowledge than I did. I have been on this blog, forum or whatever you want to call it for 2 weeks, posting for 4 days and I have learned more in that short time than I learned from the guild in over 1 year. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I have so much fabric and I was in a rut. Looking at all of the posts of pictures from people who take the time to post them gives inspiration. Not only to me but everyone who looks, reads and posts. Even to those who don't post are inspired.

    I like it because there are no ego-maniacs that I've noticed. The links have been inspiring and educational. I almost forgot that I even owned a sewing machine up until last week. It was just sitting there collecting dust and a catch-all for mail. I've received the inspiration to complete some UFO's, provided BU BU lets me. You guys make me laugh. Some of your stories about where and who you sew for make me proud. Thank you all for being here.
