Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Another one could be:
"How do I print (transfer) my photos onto fabric?"
I think we just need to make a short list to have directed to the answers or people already here will be afraid to ask questions. I check the search option but sometimes can't find just what I want, so I post a question, now I got to look up y seams. we have a lot of new quilters. :-)
How do I square up my material?
How do you cut one trip when you have a large piece of fabric, say a strip 14x 15 " from a yard of fabric?
Calculations for corner triangles when setting on point.
Another question (and I am one that has asked)
How do mark the quilt top?
When hand quilting which frame, hoop, etc are good
What to use for basting.
How to do English Paper Piecing
What type of stitch to use for applique, or how to applique
With me being a newbie I do remember asking these a lot. Hope this helps :)
Additional catagories for questions:
1. Information on marking quilting designs, pencils, etc used for the marking.
2. A list of some common terms used and their definition: squaring, dog ears, on point, etc.
3. A list of any other special sewing machine pressure feet, besides the walking foot that cold be useful in the quilting process.

don't start getting chicken about asking questions. especially since you've spent so much time looking things up for everybody else and answering a zillion questions from others. we'll make you sit in the bowl on Kathy's porch.
