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 All, I am finally back!..had a rough last year!..I had foot surgery, then fell and broke my pelvic bone in 4 places and my arm..so I have spent lots of time in bed..good to feel better again!..
Jamee, your Western Washington is wonderful..I love all the colors!..it is just perfect!..especially the fabric in the borders..that was a lot of work! Great job!!

It's beautiful!  I love the fun focal fabric and the sampler quilter blocks.  Do any of your blocks have a story associated with the hop?  Great job!

Hi Everyone? We have been silent to long..what is everyone do this summer? What are your guilds doing? Anyone working on new project? I got a guild book of all our guilds on the West Coast..Wow we are loaded! You all have a lot to share! please come out and play..
Comment by Kathy Koehler Holm on June 29, 2013 at 5:46am
Thanks Jamee, that is exactly my thinking..I haven't joined the local Quilt Guild yet, because it I has been hard to get away with taking care of DH, then I just had foot surgery, two weeks ago..so at times I do feel isolated..

I am so thankful that you told me about Quiltville..that too has been at fun thing for me and so helpful! I probably have gone overboard in joining all these groups..but you are right.,I keep reaching out for connections, especially now that I have to stay off the foot for 2 months!..that sure is not me..it is a good thing that these pain pills make me rest..or probably that foot would never heal! Thanks for sharing with me!
