    Hi there!

    I remember you from a recent FQ swap. I'm not proficient at FMQ but I can suggest that you practice on a big scrap sandwich piece - - - maybe 18x18 or 24x24. Use that for practice rather than risking your pretty quilt top. Just a thought - - -

    This is so me! I ditto this!

    I wouldn't call me a pro at quilting, but I sure would love to learn from a pro Art Quilter! If no one adopts us from the Art Quilters ring, maybe we can learn together TK.

    So, I wonder how this really works. I've been piecing since 1999 but I still don't know everything. How do you know if you know enough to be a veteran quilter? I'm willing to help someone if I can. I love doing table runners, I've done a few wall hangers where I hand and machine appliqued but I wouldn't say I'm an expert by any means.

    There are some "newbies" out there that would probably welcome our help and guidance and have lots of questions that maybe they are too shy to ask, or they may not know how to ask about certain things, for fear that they will be considered "dumb questions".
    So, QUILTERS,UNITE!!!

    p.s. don't take butterjoy, she's mine! :lol: :roll:

    I think you mean flying geese, nana. There are a few different methods on how to do the Flying Geese. If you are a real newbie, then you may not want to start with triangles or curves. Instead I would recommend to get the basic terms and processes under your belt with straight-line work. 4-patch, 9-patch, Disappearing 9-patch, Rail Fence are all great beginner patterns that allow you to learn the 1/4" seam and basic construction WITHOUT the need for perfect points. Then move on to triangular patterns.

    I could use a lot of help! I want to hand quilt from start to finish because I wont be able to get a sewing machine until Christmas time.
