    I have only been here since the end of January and I have already learned:

    What real hand quilting looks like.
    How to test for fabric bleeding.
    How to make hexagons. (made a block for applique)
    Paper peicing! (BOM made 2 blocks already!)
    How to make my own pattern! (with all the math!)

    And lots of other things.

    I thought I knew how to quilt.
    Now I am learning how to quilt!

    But there is a problem... Now I want my own sewing room, a cat and a long arm.

    This sure makes learning fun doesn't it. If you're this addicted already, hmmm, maybe you want to stay away from the Vintage Machine shop or you'll be collecting those along with us LOL !

    LOL, You are on the mark! I too want, want, want!! I have found that reading here is always a learning experience as well as a "I need one of those too!" or "I really would like to make that!"

    Welcome to the board everyone who is new to us. It is a wonderful place to share and learn and make friends. It is addicting and there is not a 12-step program for withdrawing so be verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry careful. LOL
