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.

I was reading some of our back 'days'..that we posted..and the think that struck my heart was the site you posted Lisa about the Pink Quilt!..lately, it seems things are quiet about Breast Cancer!..I think I need to make some of those, especially since I have been taking my DH to the Cancer Radiation Center for is Cancer.. I am always so surprised to see the packed waiting room..and you Are right, it does feel go to be under a warm quilt, while taking treatment for Cancer!

Hello All, I am new to your group!..but have been with Quilt with us for a year..I love all the groups!..but I think my passion is , especially with the group Quilts for Kids!..I have reached a point in my life, where it is time to give back! I live in Southern Calif. and retired afew years..right now I am working on Mimi baby quilts for the babies that have passed , and no one has claimed them..these precious quilts are wrapped around then, when they are buried .
Please tell me about all that you are doing and your group!..Hugs!..Kathy

Dear Kathy,  I am also a group of one.  I do enjoy knitting and quilting.  I knit the baby hats  becauce of one special girl.  My sisters granddaughter.   She was born 3 months early.  She weighed 12.6 ounces and was 10 inches long.  Thank God she is healthy and 5 now.  She was in nicu for 4 months.  All the babies are special.  That is how I started this project.

Hey Ruth, I am new to this site tho I have shopped CT for years.  This is the first group I've looked at and was dismayed to see your post.  Tends to make me think the group not so active.  I have crocheted preemie caps as well as belonged to a very active charity group when I lived in Florida.  Sadly, have been unable to find any of the same groups here in Virginia so am starting to form my own, lol.  Right now I am a group of one!

that is so cool... i have a few people say Pay it Forward...good evening... working on a Quilt of Valor quilt.. first time trying this. i used to make smaller ones for the nicu unit when i lived in green bay... and pillowcases but now since i moved back to milwaukee i found other charities to quilt for.. i also would like to make some quilts for the adults in the cancer floors too.. not just for the children.. Adults need that caring blanket .. take it from me.. i know.. a high school friend sent me a beautiful pink lap quilt and it really comforted me when i was going thru my mastecomys and other surgeries.. breast cancer is hard but having a quilt was a comfort.. so let us not forget the adults too

Greetings everyone!   I am so excited to have found this group.   If you look at my pictures, you will see my PIF  ( Pay It Forward ) quilts.  I didn't do many for a while because we were in the process of moving.  In my new town, the quilt groups are very much into giving.  I love it !

Hi, does anyone know of any charities that accept just the quilt top made, as have made a few but have no back or batting on them, is there any charity that would finish and donate them for me? have big full size bed ones, children size bed ones and baby size ones too.
thankyou, any help would be great..
