    Am I correct in saying I made a quilt if I pieced the top but had someone else machine quilt it? Thanks.

    Yes. Many people don't have time or equipment to quilt their items. That's why we need longarm quilters.

    Thank you. I am new at quilting and just wanted to make sure I was being honest with everybody when I said look at the quilt I made.

    if you cook supper but someone else serves it, you get credit for a good supper. yes you made a quilt!
    you can give the quilter credit for helping you pull it all together but I say it's mainly you baby!

    The Quilt Police will say you're the piecer not the quilter. But, luckily the quilt police aren't really welcome here;>

    The only time is becomes an issue is if you're entering it into a quilt show, even a small local one, whether judged or not.

    It is both courteous and professional, and the right thing to do, to give credit to the longarm-er (is that a word?).

    However, I've seen labels without it. Not so polite, but not an "arrestable" offense. Sometimes it's from Grandma to Grandbaby and, understandably, Grandma didn't feel the need to add LongarmMary to the label.:D

    But you most certainly can consider yourself a quilter.
