There were a lot of responses, and we thought it would be fun to share them with you. You can read all the answers, and add your own at the American Quilter's Society Facebook…

Welcome to the newest online community, exclusively for quilters. We want to make you and your work the primary feature of the website. There are plenty of books, magazines, TV shows and other things that show you what others are doing. But, at the American Quilter's Society, we feel you should have a place to let everyone know what YOU are doing.

Please take some time to create a profile, add some images, and join a group or two.

To get started, here's what we…

Tell us about yourself
The American Quilter’s Society mission is to provide a means for today’s quilters to expand their horizons in quilt-making, design, self-expression, and quilt collecting. Our magazines, books, products, shows, contests, and workshops all strive to inspire, instruct, and nurture the art and skill of quilt-making.

The AQS publishes its flagship membership magazine, American Quilter, along with the new The Quilt Life. Each are published 6 times per year. Readers who subscribe to both receive unique quilting tips and quilt patterns every month.

AQS marked its 25th anniversary with the Paducah event in April 2009. The AQS Quilt Show & Contest is considered the premier international quilting event. Each year's show brings more than $20 million in economic impact to the area and at least 37,000 attendees. Quilters and quilts are everywhere––even the gas stations hang quilts. More than 10,000 quilts have been displayed in Paducah and more than $2.5 million in cash prizes have been awarded.

hi! one of the members here @ mqp, carla walton, has made an incredible quilt that recently won a blue ribbon in the abilene tx quilt show. a couple of us in the gardening group would like to change the photo avatar there to a photo of carlas quilt. we think a quilt depicting the seasons harvest would be a nice avatar. here is link to her album page showing her quilt and her permission to use it.*HHQV1XMfPG54M/SAM_08173.JPG__that second link is the full view page of the photo we want to use.__thanks. not sure this is the proper proceedure for what we are asking. if not please let us know how to ho about changing the gardenining group avatar. again, thanks

I shy away from "baby"quilts as they become toddlers too quickly- so I do basically a two sided quilt. One side has the child's name in large paper pieced blocks, and a pocket for a toy or a book in matching fabric. I keep the background simple, like a white with, multi colored dots. The other side  could be any simple pattern- the last one I did was big half square triangles with the bias pattern stripe coming together and arranged in rows with the same background as the front. Binding was the striped fabric of the pieced letters and the triangles.

Just a thought, it would be nice if we could sort the "Quilter's Page" by location so we can find quilters in our area without having to go through 100+ pages. :)

THank you so much for the birthday wishes.  It's been a great birthday - one of the best things is that I got an old 1930's White running like new (took me sooo long to figure out that the needle goes in sidewise, and the wheel turns BACKWARDS) but it runs better than my newer machines.

AQS has always had a fine appreciation for red and white quilts. When I have offered related workshops and lectures, they have always been successful. Redwork is beautiful, affordable, and easily created.
