The TQS website has grown far beyond our initial vision. It has become a world-wide quilt guild and it is a vast playground for quilters of all types. We will continue to bring new features to the site. However, with so many new members now on board, we want you to share what your favorite links are (quilt gallery, member blogs, forum, BOM, etc.) and why. Your input just might lead someone to an area they have not explored. So - - - What is your favorite place on TQS? Raise your hand and speak up now.

Here is a closer look at the Quilts shown behind Liuxin Newman.  Liuxin explains how she kept looking for better techniques so she could impress the judges at shows.  She had to become more skillful.  Be sure to watch the show and hear her story.  Just click on Liuxin in the banner on the right border.

Heather Purcell of Superior Threads just sent me this picture of the BOM quilt for 2009.  It is a great picture but still does not do justice to the original.  So how is Sue going to cut this into 12 monthly pieces? 

 Be ready for a lot of learning and fun.  Also, check the purple bar and click on Show and Tell  and then click on "BOM Only".   There you will see the BOMs for 2008 and 2009 set up. We have just set up this part of the site and people are starting to put up their pictures.  Try out the sorting by selecting just one BOM month.   Go over and take a look.

This was also a very large quilt.  Probably 10'-15' across and 5' in height.

This is a very large quilt.  I think it is about 6 feet tall.  The flowers just jump out at you.  Barbara Olson was in our show 105.  Click here.  Or Get the DVD. Click here.

Grandma sent Alex a bag of unfinished Grandma's Flower Garden blocks. Then for the final unit needed to graduate from college, Alex created this quilt. For the exact measurements--see "bathmat" in the dictionary.

There are rumors that "Project Runway" was conceived after viewing this picture.

Here is one of the wonderful presentation areas for Alex at Houston.  It even had noted celebrities dropping by for a photo op.  Come back later today for the first quilt and early signs of sewing talent.
