Default My quilt board history

What a joy from scrolling through threads I have posted.

I have posted 7 years. My quilts have been preserved by this quilt board. I am fortunate. Not one quilt for me, wonderful to see my loved quilted friends ( my quilts). I call them friends because I have lived/ laughed/cried with them from start to finish.

I never thought of QB as a history of the quilts I have made.

I agree. There is a history of my quilting on this board. I have now been quilting 6 years, and this board has been with me every step of the way....starting with the first time I changed the blade in my rotary cutter and didn't know if I should wipe the excess oil off of the blade before I put it in the cutter. I asked the question here and got an answer immediately.

I find it handy to go look at threads I started, like when I started my first Bargello and asked for advice. I got so much good information from that thread that I revisit it when I am selecting fabric for a Bargello.

And I am pretty sure I have posted a picture of each quilt as soon as it was finished.

This is a good place to be, and I hadn't thought of it being a history of my quilting, but it certainly is. .

I never thought of it that way but it is true. Just the other day, I was reading an old thread which was about prairie points and surprise, there was a reply from me. I had a picture of a quilt I made with information about the size of the HSTs, which were in the top, and the size of the prairie points. It is a nice history.

What nice memories, but maybe you should save some pictures too. Just in case something happens to all this electronic world we live in. It is however very nice to be able to look back.

When I click onto "The Quilting Board Daily Digest", I find my board name at the top. A click on that takes me to my profile. I go there every day to see who has replied to my posts. I can never remember to which posts I have sent a reply. And I go there to see if anyone else has viewed my threads.

Good thought. Now I wish I had them all posted here. I know someone once said she used the quiltingboard as a log/journal of her quilts...as a blog maybe? I can't remember now but it would be nice to have record of them all in one place. And what better place right?
