Quilt With Us

I'm sitting here thinking it's been 11 years since I have been on QWU. I found out about this site through a flyer that came in the mail in 2008. I joined along with many others. Each day they posted members birthday until the members got to be too many to post.  I have enjoyed viewing the the beautiful quilts of the many talented lady's on this site. And the many variations of of quilts I have seen. I was a new quilter when I joined QWU and was amazed seeing all this talent displayed.  I would love to see members old and new posting a blog on when they joined QWU and the impact it had on them of others who have been quilting many years. I think it would be nice also to have a chat with some of the newbie members here to get to know you and welcome you.

I, too, joined in 2008.  Since then I have been buying mostly Connecting Threads fabrics and quilting products.  I met a lot of on-line quilting friends through this blog and we even formed some groups. 

I am thrilled to see that there are still a lot of the folks I have connected with, and I really learned a lot from sharing all things about quilting.

I am still busy quilting, and no matter how much stash I have, I can't seem to make a dent on it, and of course, I still buy new fabrics. I probably have enough fabric and gizmos to last me twice my lifetime.

So to all of you, I am thankful for being a part of this wonderful group.

I have been here a long time too. It seems like I just stumbled onto it. What a gift it was!

I think I found Connecting Threads through a catalog that came in the mail, in 2012 I think. That's when I started making my first quilt through Craftsy and loved the fabric I saw in the CT catalog. Then I signed up for the PerfectPoints quilt-along and completed that quilt, and then some of the mystery quilts (still not finished . . .), then found myself on Gifty Galore with a fun group of people and that's where I do my sharing. I have used this main page to get some questions answered a couple times. Everyone here has been a wealth of information and inspiration and I am grateful for the friends I have made.

Irene, your post made me go back and look, and it’s been ten years this month since I’ve been on this site. I’ve really enjoyed the time I’ve spent here, especially since I’m not part of a local guild or group. I love seeing everyone’s quilts and appreciate the help and support I’ve received from others!

Not sure how long I have been on here, but love all the inspiration I get from seeing everyone's entries.  This group is so generous with positive feedback, and I feel like I can ask question about everything from quilting to making Thanksgiving dinner.  We have shared triumphs and heartbreaks; we've lifted each other up in so many ways.

It has been a long running site! That's because everyone is sincere about their postings and care about each other! I have learned a lot about quilting by just seeing others projects. If, ever I had a question, it has been nice to have someone that has the answer!
