Quilting Community AQS News

Join AQS and Quilters from Around the World on Facebook

Here are the results for last week’s questions.

by Sylvia J. Thomas

On August 12, 2009, AQS launched its Facebook page. We have had a great time discovering a whole new dimension to the world of quilting. AQS now has over 4,200 fans and is still growing. Our Facebook mission is to keep you updated on what is going on in AQS with all the shows, publications and magazines while providing a place for everyone to “meet” to get new inspiration and information to make your quilting experience more enjoyable and satisfying.

Last week we started asking questions on Facebook. The topics were fabric color & organization and patterns & pattern designers. From the comments received, the color blue is in the lead and most of you like to store your stash in clear containers organized by color. So far the traditional Log Cabin pattern was mentioned most along with Eleanor Burns as the favored pattern designer. If you haven’t commented or read the comments, take a few moments. It’s a fun way to spend some time and maybe get ideas for that next project or to finally complete those UFOs.

It’s not too late to add your opinion to the mix. This week’s questions will be about mystery quilts, so don’t forget to post a comment and read what others think.

We are also asking quilters to share their most recent project. Post a photo and description of the technique, pattern, etc. on the AQS Facebook page. You can even let us know how you will be celebrating National Quilting Day on March 20th.

AQS is enjoying the interaction of Facebook and hopes that you are having a good time, too. Let us know what you are doing, how we are doing, and what we can do for you.
