    Smile So glad to have found this site

    Hello, all. I am new here and to proper quilting. I've done some free form utilitarian quilts in the past, but never a pieced one from a pattern.

    Welcome from Miami and I think if you do "free form" or use patterns you are a quilter. I make lots of charity quilts and I keep em easy and often do free form. I even did a crazy quilt and it was great fun. Talk about "free form" that one was just so easy and was a big hit!

    Welcome from Indiana

    "proper quilting" "free form" - Just remember there are NO Quilt Police - so 'free form' quilting is allowed....I think they even call it 'art quilting'...some of the most beautiful artwork in the world.

    LOVE BOTH styles!
