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.

Is anyone still active in this group?  I'm new to quilting, and love the look of modern quilts.  I was hoping to join an online group, and this one caught my eye.

Hi there, is anyone commenting on this post? I am going to make a more modern quilt for my niece for her wedding this year. I have the fabric and the pattern, I just need a couple of retreats to get started on it. :)

Beautiful quilt. Thanks for sharing. I love the colors and the quilting looks great. I've never used a long arm. I quilt everything on my Juki.

Wow, I've visited Craftsy but haven't joined. That quilt is wonderful. At first glance you can't tell it's a DWR.

Wow, what a gorgeous DWR.  Thanks for posting this pic Laurie.  I just recently joined Craftsy.com but haven't done much on it yet.
