    I have been quilting for over 6 years and have make 100s of quilts, literally, I hold a Patchwork class to teach newbies but still go to my Quilting Classes in the winter.

    I do ordinary pieced work, PP and applique, the fused kind not the turn edged type :shock: I prefer to FMQ my quilts and am quite happy with binding, double and biased and I have sold a handful of quilts.

    I classify myself as a Newbie going to to lower Intermediate, but looking at some of the work on this forum I feel like a new born quilter :!:

    I think this is the reason I love quilting as you can never be bored or sit on your laurels, there is always a challenge to take one in every quilt you make.

    How do you rate yourself, honestly.

    According to what you have rated yourself, then I suck. :-)

    Same here, I stink.
    Hopefully one day I'll be able to make a block that measures up to the proper finished sized and square.
    :cry:

    I'm a begginer at peicing quilts and i'm not afraid to admit it. I have lots of room for improvement. However I am finding that if I never get my points competition perfect i'm not going to care. I'm learning this for me and my state of mind.

    I try not to rate myself as one quilt will turn out great and then the next one not so.....People love them, so that's my gauge. I have learned that careful piecing and squaring up all the blocks really helps in the end.
