    Hi Amy

    I do both hand and machine piecing. I do my quilting by hand, not good with a sewing machine. I like all different fabrics. I do mostly appliqued baby quilts. I just finished one on dinosaurs.

    I agree. Post some of your work. I love pictures.

    I machine piece.
    I enjoy quilting by hand but I'm not very good.
    I like the speed of machine quilting but I'm not very good.
    I am seeing a pattern here.
    I may have to join you with the URR. I got the book but that's it.

    I am almost totally scrappy.
    I love homespuns, civil war and 30's repros. I prefer darks but also love girlie pastels.
    I only do traditional quilts.....even design traditional.
    I hand quilted as a business for 20 years then became a longarmer 11 years ago.

    >I am totally in love with Civil war repros, but like all 1800's era fabrics
    >mostly scappy if its for me, but that can vary also

    I machine piece. I machine quilt, and practice is helping to improve my quilting. I love traditional quilt blocks. I really like fall colors for my quilts. I'm still a beginner, but I really love quilting. Everyday I get new ideas from this site. I need to live to be 100 to just come close to making them all. :D

    I machine quilt and mine generally are themed I guess you could say. I like to make anything that catches my eye and is within my skill level.

    I machine piece and machine quilt. Love traditional patterns and have very seldom run across a piece of fabric that I don't like. I am a fabri-holic! :lol:

    I machine and hand piece depending on the project, love paper piecing and trying new things. I hand quilt, but prefer machine because it is faster. The fabrics I like really depends on my mood and what I am doing at the time.

    I machine piece and machine quilt. I kinda lean toward the traditional but would try any of it. I want to hand piece and hand quilt 2 quilts before I get to old to do so. For my daughters as a family Heirloom. Boy I had better get busy, I am already a senior. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Hi again! I machine piece only, and I got a short arm machine with a frame to do my own quilting. It's a "starter" set, and I am learning so much. I have tried paper piecing, and will go back to it some time in the future. I have tried some machine applique (little bit), and will most likely go to that in the future. I am still perfecting my machine piecing, so that is my main focus.

    I love all fabrics and mix and match freely! I like traditional blocks, but also have an interest in arty stuff (although I haven't tried any yet). I have posted some of my stuff on here, and it's really fun to get the feedback.
