I am a long time member of "Quilting With Us" (QWU). I used to give virtual workshops here. Like many others, I have ventured out as QWU became more quiet.

We are getting the warning that QWU is at risk of being disabled. I fear this is a sign that QWU will one day be no more.

It has become like family here and the thought of losing the friendships we have developed has giving me a sad heart. Like many dark clouds, there is a silver lining. When I ventured out, I created a quilters social network, much like QWU. I never mentioned it, for it was a conflict of interest. However, in this dark hour, it is time to let others know there is an alternative. It does not have to end here.

I would be honored for QWU members to join "Pattern Pastiche". If needed, we are more than happy to create a group for your new home.

Hi Melissa I love the baby quilts and booties but am still waiting to be a grandma. I was wondering if the tutorials will continue. A few of us would like to finish scary techniques if that is possible. I made a baby quilt for a young couple I know in Western Australia. It was the first one I actually quilted with more than a straight pattern. The front is simply squares but the back or reverse is a bit more unusual. I called it gentle waves (I think).

Just finished a darling Personalized diaper bag for my daughter's friend that is having a baby girl. Will try to post pictures later today. I designed this one myself. I love it.

I've sent a message to CT admin regarding "iwanta newjob". If you look at how long ago this was posted, I wonder how many of us were out of bed. It seems kind of like those e-mails I get that are advertising something or telling you that you've won won (something too good to be true) They always arrive during the night.

It appeared in every group I belong to on QWU.
Comment by Jan from Iowa/Arkansas on November 4, 2009 at 7:24am
I wondered about that also. I always am concerned about getting something for nothing!!!

Here is the post again from iwanta newjob. This looks fishy. Can someone check this out? She's appeared on another group and I'm a bit concerned with the posting. Thanks

Hi, All! I joined this group pretty close to the beginning and haven't had time to comment! I have a granddaughter, Adelaide, who's 1st birthday is this Halloween and another "honorary " granddaughter, Gianna, who's 1st birthday was on the 6th. Addie is a very *big* little girl and Gianna is petite.
I made both girls the booties from the book and I used the 12 month size. Trying to get the shoe on Adelaide made me feel like the prince's emissary trying to get the glass slipper on Cinderella's step-sister! LOL Got it on, but she'll probably only be able to wear it about a week! : ) Haven't tried Gianna's on yet.
I'd also made them both the sundresses. Addie's fit perfectly and Gianna's was *roomy*. I was just so busy this past Summer, and it was so cold here that I just had trouble thinking *sundress* weather!
I'm impressed by any of you making those booties smaller than 12 months! Everything was fine, but I thought putting the in-soles (lining) on was a bit labor intensive, to say the least!
There's no doubt that they're very cute when you're done with them!

Hello everyone, newbie here! I just started quilting the last 6 months or so. I started on a baby quilt from Amy Butler's little stitches and got hooked. I sewed a lot of other things over the last couple of years, but as soon as I had Ethan's quilt done I had to do another (it's kind of addicting). I just finished a quilt from some of my scraps and this weekend I'm starting on my first applique quilt. I'll probably do the pieceing on the machine and the applique by hand. Hope to gather a wealth of info from this site:)

Thanks for the 'heads up' on sizing. I hoping to find out if our new one is going to be a boy or a girl.
