    I am Addicted!

    to quilt tops on Etsy! I love quilting, not so much piecing. Plus, the quilt tops I've bought have paper piecing and curved piecing - 2 things I haven't tried yet. Is there an Etsy anonymous group I can join?

    I've never looked on etsy. Are they expensive? I guess, since you keep buying them, that the quality is good, right?

    I'm. Sure quality can vary, just like on CL or eBay, but I've only bought from patchmaker on Etsy. She does a lot of New York Beauty designs along with some other designs. Obviously, I really like her stuff!

    Same here but I do want to look on there & see if they have any cute pincushions (which I've decided I need to be addicted to also). Any tips?

    I buy a lot of tops on Ebay. I love to look at them, even if I don't buy them. I'm not a piecer either. I don't even like going to the fabric store, but I "make" myself when I need to buy backing! The only "problem" I have with it is it's impossible to find matching fabric to back and bind the quilt and you're stuck with the size you buy. I've only bought from 2 dealers, and one of them uses pretty decent quality fabrics, but the other one could be a little better. But they are beautiful and inexpensive. I'm sure if you paid more, you'd get better quality. When somebody wants me to make them a quilt, I tell them to go on ebay and etsy and buy the top they want!!
    You can have any design you want. As long as it's loops!
