    I've always been curious about how this site started, who started it, and who our moderators are. Would you all share how you got involved with this site and what you enjoy most about it? I'm so grateful for having this place to get encouragement, instruction, friendship, and help. Thanks to you all!

    I happened upon this site by accident one day last winter. I enjoy it so much. It's like eaves dropping on the best conversations! I don't know much about what can and can't be said. I find the contributors to be tasteful and fun as all get out. I always learn something and see the most fantastic quilts imaginable. I do wish I knew the name and patterns of some of these fantastic avatar quilts. I love the show n tell too. I would post some if I didn't spend (waste?) so much time here and spent more time sewing! giggles! :lol:

    Currently we have a senior moderator who helps out with everyday issues:
    PatriceJ

    Additionally, the following users are also moderators who agreed to help out in cases of severe abuse of the board:
    Butterflyspain
    Jim's Gem
    kathy
    k_jupiter
    littlehud
    sharon b
    Up North

    i've started a few times to attempt compiling something to roughly outline our history. i think it would be a long and colorful story.

    but i'm easily distracted by shiny objects and pretty fabrics. :lol:

    I got on it after needing to know if I really should wash my quilt before I entered it in the fair. Everyone told me yes, I did. Got a blue ribbon, and love this site. It has been less that 2 months but I'm addicted. Couldn't get back to sleep, so am on hear at 3:45 AM! LOL

    I stumbled on this board when I was looking for some fabric. It popped up in the search.

    There was a thread here once about the start of this board, I'm sure that someone will find it. I think the origianl owner/ moderator just left the board last year after getting married and getting a life. Someone correct me if I'm wrong I could be thinking of another forum.

    Ditto to deebopper. Would think being a moderator is difficult at best. Thanks for doing the job.

    We appreciate all the moderators efforts. You make it easy for the rest of us. What a wonderful site to "hang" with our friends. It would be fun to see everyone in person.

    "but i'm easily distracted by shiny objects and pretty fabrics."

    Those pretty fabrics, you gotta watch out for them......

    I started getting the quilted paradise newsletter first back in late 2007. I would occasionally look at the most visited topics. It wasn't until I was stuck at home for over 3 1/2 months after shoulder surgery that I checked out the board and joined. Had lots of time to "play" on the computer then.
    I am on here way too much for my own good, especially since I am no longer working.

    Thanks to all the moderators and the work they do. I cannot imagine how much time it sucks up.

    I really like this site and learn something everyday. It has helped me improve my quilting, when I take the time to walk away from the computer an do some sewing.
