    Your cute.

    Latest update we have a new mom and a new newbie.

    Please let me introduce Brushand thimble who is interested in adopting. She likes scrap and log cabin patterns and enjoys redwork and needle turn applique.

    And tlp is looking to be adopted and is currently fascinated with rag quilts.

    I'm loving doing this and hope that we can keep it going.

    I would love the idea of adding a thread in Pictures with all the fun stuff we are learning to do. Let me know if anyone is interested.

    I love how this is getting organized :D:D:D

    I wonder if you would be interested in utilizing the same Group Activity section as the swap leaders use? Then we would have all of the adoptions listed there, and we could add links in the comment section to the projects we are currently working on together...

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/group_activity_list.jsp

    We could still keep this topic alive and current, and Patrice could add the link to the group activity page onto page 1 of this topic so it is easily found by everyone.

    Amma that sounds great. Do I need to get permission or anything? Or do I just follow the link?

    I looked on that page...and I didn't see a way to start one, so you may need to ask Patrice or Shadow Dancer about how to start it :D

    Congratulations to brushandthimble and tip our newest adoption.

    Please cross dingle off of the Moms and Dads list. I misunderstood her post.

    Re: Activity Section. I better see if they are willing to stickyfy us first before I start asking for more stuff maybe?

    Still looking for someone to adopt me! :cry: I sort of feel like the last kid picked for the kick ball team. I am mostly interested in learning how to quilt my quilts so they look fabulous. So far, I have only made sampler/scrap book/personal quilts that are for or about specific people. I have machine quilted the tops using the stitch in the ditch method (yawn) I've really enjoyed it but would like to branch out and would LOVE to have a quilting buddy that I could ask my questions.

    No need to feel like that, honest! You are merely pointing out that a mentor's skill level has to be matched to the "student's" need. You need someone who is good at quilting - a very different requirement and much harder to teach long-distance than some other skills.

    :D:D:D I think you met the first requirement by offering to be our leader :D:D:D I don't think that Patrice will mind another question/request :wink: Activities like this was why Admin added that section :D:D:D

    If you knew how cute I was, you would adopt me.
    I have been quilting a little over a year, but not very productive so I don't have much experience.

    Hello, I have been quilting since the summer of 2007. I have completed a few quilts but have lots to learn. I have never mitered corners, FMQ'd or paperpieced. I definately need to learn the last as some of my nieces quilt will be so. I would love to help out anyone.

    Maybe we can have a verteran, a middle of the road person and a newbie all together b/c I know there are a lot of us who fall in middle of the road.

    I machine piece and hand quilt. My name is Michele, let me know if anyone wants to pair up!

    Kyia
