    Cool Hello from Minnesota

    Hello, I consider myself an experience quilter. I have been sewing all my life. I am known to break the rules. I rarely follow a quilting pattern exactly. I consider the pattern as suggestions on how I might do it.

    Welcome from Central Florida! I have always said, "Patterns are merely a suggestion". Having fun is the most important thing! No rules to quilting is what makes it so fun, so get a creative as you like! I've been sewing since 8 years old on my mother's treadle machine & quilting since 2010. I've come a long way in those few years though. I hope you love this forum as much as I do! Merry Christmas!

    Hello from Maryland. Like you, I've never followed a pattern exactly, and probably never will. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing, but it works for me. (I'm curious, are you a second-born? We don't follow rules; we break them!)

    Welcome from OHIO!
    Being a great quilter is 5% talent and 95% pushing yourself away from the internet!

    Welcome from SE Wisconsin. Thanks for sending us all your frigid cold air, by the way

    I love that you consider patterns "suggestions"! I hope to get to your skill level, as I enjoy breaking rules, too. hehehe

    Welcome to this board. I too do not follow a pattern, whether it be for sewing, knitting, cross stitch, quilting or etc...I follow by pic and put to my own size or placement...Welcome from NE Iowa..
