    Modern vs Traditional

    Hi from Oregon. I have been "lurking" on the site. Getting lots of info, learning new stuff and having grins and giggles but decided to join in on the fun. I first learned to quilt long ago and far away when I took a quilt class for beginners. It was hand quilting using templates and cutting everything with scissors. (That was before rotary cutters!) As a working person I had little time but by hit and miss and off and on I taught myself to piece on my machine.
    My sister is a devout quilter, even has a longarm quilting business, encouraged me all the time. But recently a couple things happened. One, I got a decent sewing machine. Yup, that made all the difference. I love my Janone, enough said. Second, I now have time to sew. And finally, I learned to hand dye material so I can get the colors I want.
    Funny thing about my quilts....When I make a full size (bed or crib) I make traditional patterns. But when I make a wall hanging, I go for modern. Am I the only conflicted quilter out there
    Anyway, glad to be here and join this wonderful circle of friends. Taino Jan

    Haven't gotten into wallhangings. I like traditional quilts. May stem from grandmother and great aunt that made traditional quilts when I was growing up. Welcome from Texas.

    I have also been lurking for some time also. I started quilting many years ago with hand piecing and hand quilting. It has only been in the last several years that I have made the switch to macine piecing. Now I need to learn how
    to machine quilt.
