    I obviously need to be adopted. I have no idea what all of the initials stand for!!! I have gone beyond the normal 9 patch, and miter corners quite well (thanks to step by step instructions from sister and internet.)

    I would love to learn paper piecing and many other things.

    I want to adopt someone!!! :mrgreen:

    I love block quilting and am kinda' traditional, but also love the batiks and all the cool stuff you can do with them.
    I can paper piece and actually really, really like it.
    I can handquilt, but am too new at it to be too much help.
    I can do very little MQ, so no help there.
    I love country applique, either by hand or machine.
    I think the hardest quilt I've done so far is a Lone Star.
    My favorite color is blue, but I won't hold it against you if yours is not!

    I'm a grandma, a dog and cat lover, don't like any domestic activity to interrupt my quilting, but then feel guilty about house being a mess! My hubby and I celebrated our 21st anniversary yesterday. He's my second and he's a keeper! I live above San Francisco, CA and have kids who live on the East Coast; how dare they!

    I hope someone wants me to be their mommy.

    I dearly love teaching newbies, or anyone who needs a helping hand. I have been quilting and piecing for lo these many years and have made at least a thousand quilts. I am still learning also. It is an ongoing thing. I mostly do hand piecing and quilting. But I also do machine. In fact going to the machine more and more since I am a VERY senior citizen.I still have so many I want to make. lol jolo

    Wow Jolo. I bet you have hundreds of ideas that a lot of newbies here could use. Could you list the most important things and maybe4 post pictures of what you are talking about?

    I think probably the most important first thing is cutting and then the same size seam. I know 1/4 is what the quilt police say ,and I agree with that, but some new sewers find they cant do this til they buy a foot for the machine. It will make a difference in the size the block finishes. Does thia make sense.?
