    Okay everyone, I was inspired by a different thread to get everyone's reason for loving the Quilting Board. I can't wait to hear everyone's answer.

    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 love it because the people are so friendly and helpful. It's like having an online family! And let's not even get started on all the quilt ideas I've gotten from here....

    I agree with Buckyfan and Raggiemom-I'm able to surf a little when I have nothing to do at work and everyone is so friendly. Not to mention the ideas that start to go on in your head about more and more quilts. Makes you really start to be come....creative! :)
    Hugs to all my new found friends.
    Thanks!!

    It's peaceful. I've only been here for a few weeks but I haven't seen one fight!

    I work in my home and when I am not working I am babysitting grandkids.
    It is my only outlet for quilting. It has great friends and good ideas to get me motivated.

    You lot are almost the only quilters I know, so everything I learn now is either inspired by, or directly from you! I usually browse at home, but when my workday is just awful I like to come here to remind myself that I'll get to go home soon and be happy again!

    I love it because people make you feel welcome and no question is too daft to get a constructive answer. The search button is fab too. I only wish we had one like this in the UK bcause so many of you seem to get together.

    It is great as there is so much useful information and the tutorials are great. Also a great way to meet other quilters. By the way, I noticed you're from Wisconsin -what city are you from. I'm originally from Wisconsin being the city of Colby (home of Colby Cheese).

    I've been a loner with a longing all my life. I feel a part of this warm and wonderful group of people who accept me just as I am. I can sit here with whatever I wish, coffee, clothes or just my puppy and enjoy your help, humor and humble generosity. I feel so blessed to have met you all. I'm connected. Thank You. Ruth

    I love the QB because of all the wonderful people. I can learn so much from everyone that I don't have to spend money on classes....which gives me more money for fabric :D :D

    I love the QB for all the advice given to this newbie. From choosing fabrics, to thread, to color choice. It's all here. And if it's not, it's because I haven't asked! Thanks for being...

    I love QB because I'm a newby and it's opened my eyes to all kinds of things about quilting: questions (complete with answers), problems (complete with proposed solutions), techniques like bargello, cathedral window, and SO many more (complete with tutorials and links to other sites), etc. Who knew there were so many different techniques, so many ideas, and so much info out there?

    Each day, I read the threads that contain technique info that I should absorb. (I read pages and pages.) For dessert, I look at every photo. They inspire me to keep building my skills until the day I can make something really special. (I'm almost at the end of Volume 1 of Harriet and Carrie Hargrave's book series, The Quilter's Academy, and I'm taking the 4-Seasons Beginners Bargello course at quiltuniversity.com - both of which I learned about on QB! )

    I honestly don't think I'd have the patience to be so deliberate if it were not for seeing, every day, the fantastic quilts y'all produce!

    With gratitude,
    Sue

    I love the QB because it brings me in touch with wonderful people who share the same hobby as me. They are supportive, funny, encouragers, that don't scold me when I blow the bank at the fabric store!

    I like it so much, everyone is friendly and helpful. I have written and book marked so much info in 3 months, it is like I took a class for a semester. It is the greatest.

    I love the pictures for inspiration, the tutes for knowledge, the helpfulness if someone is stuck, and the funnies that are posted for a daily laugh. I also love the support for the lonely or those with emotional needs and the CLASSIFIEDS that feed our habit!

    There is no way I would have access to all the websites, info do you realize when you are searching for an answer that at any given moment 600+ people are searching for you? Many people here inspire me to do things for folks other than family. You cannot be apart of this board without becoming a better person! and one of the most amazing things is meeting people from all over the world!
