Join us on a TQS exclusive 12-month journey into the land of childhood memory with a charming quilt designed especially for TQS by internationally-known Australian designer Lynette Anderson. Lynette combines simple, unpretentious folk art style appliqué motifs with patchwork blocks for a quilt that will be lots of fun to make. Each month we will provide photos, detailed directions for a portion of the quilt, and full-size patterns. We will once again be offering monthly companion teaching videos as well. It all makes for a year of fun and learning!

Thanks to Renata & Marilyn for expressing this so well. And, Terrie, just so you know I am going where the chocolate is being served. Yum! No calories.

I should have brought these to the NYE party for Maureen.

Maybe people would go where the chocolate is? I could give out out virtual chocolate on the forum. Maybe Lotti can contribute once in a while.

The 2015 BOM Category is now available in the forum!

I don't know what the status is on improving the Show and Tell gallery. I know it is not at all what it should be right now. It's probably a project that will take more time. John advises Bob on priorities for the website and there are other things they are working on, too.

Thanks, Kathy. It just means we will have to monitor 2015 BOM information in both places because you can't control which of the two places people are going to use to post... as you know, some are willing to explore the new feature provided by the Group community section, others feel more comfortable and find easier to navigate the Forum. In the end, not providing a clear structure for the BOM is likely to add to the confusion and frustration some members are currently experiencing and certainly will not provide a one-stop place for the BOM dialogue. Not the end of the world, but not efficient from a strategic perspective either.

As for the advantage of posting pictures in the Group area, that may be so, but the features of the old Show-and-Tell were far superior to what is in the Group area. If you are not familiar with the old Show-and-Tell for the BOM, I'm sure someone on the TQS staff can show it to you. Several people have raised this issue already, but it seems to have fallen on deaf ears. Either that, or maybe it's too difficult to bring it back and no one is telling us.

It will be interesting to monitor both the Forum and the Group to see where the bulk of comments are made regarding BOM 2015. This might give the TQS leadership a better feel for how the membership is responding to this new concept of "Group."

Thanks!

Well it's worked well with CWs to talk here on the forum and use the group to post pictures.

I'd prefer to stay here it's easier to read and follow posts and no one feels excluded, whereas the group you have to join or be invited.

Kathy, will there be a section here on the forum for the 2015 BoM?

Yes, I sent Bob a request. There is also a group for the 2015 BOM. Use either or both.

Kathy, thanks for sending Bob the request. Does that mean that the group discussion section for the 2015 BOM and the section for the 2015 BOM on the Forum will be linked so that you post in either place and be able to read it in both?
