    I loved making the monster baby quilt! I used appliqué (which I loved) and had to stuff the legs and I even used fabric markers to add faces or spots or toes. Loved the whole process.

    I love the 1/4 circle blocks made from the Crazy Curves templates by Elisa's Backporch. No pins! You can make Drunkards Path and all kinds of patterns with them. I've done 3 so far, and will be doing more. Here are 2 I've done.

    I am insetting circles like a mad woman. Recently I bought the Cheryl Phillips Circle-A-Round template and I simply LOVE that technique. The only downside is that the project never ends. For every circle you inset, there is a circle 1" smaller of the background fabric. Now you have to find a new background for it and so on and so on.

    I too love new techniques! I have just begun a quilt on which I am learning to hand piecei. The blocks I am making are called Carolena's Dove in the Window. This project is full of Y-seams which I have never done, as well. What fun to learn new techniques!

    What are some of your favorite new techniques? I am in the mood for a new
    experience.

    I've got the French Roses pattern on my sewing machine waiting it's turn.
    We would worry less about what others think of us if we realized how seldom they do.

    I've got a couple of books on fabricc folding. It too is waiting it's turn. It's looks hard and usually I only learn a new technique I can teach my students.

    Quote] In a perfect world, I would have 6 or more identical machines set up to FMQ each with a different thread color so I could just move my quilt from one machine to another and not have to change thread too often. Quote]

    What a concept! Why didn't I think of that? lol

    I have 7 machines. I use them all at different times, but it never occurred to me to set them up with different colors for thread painting. Too logical I guess! lol Thanks for the idea.

    No particular method for me. I just find a quilt I would like to make, and if the technique is new, then I do it! I do like machine applique, and have a couple of projects in mind for it.

    Tammy those are awesome. I love Drunkard's Path becasue it creates so many optical illusions although I hand piece my blocks (by preference since I like to have a hand project going during any of my big machine projects...)

    I really enjoy the stained glass wallhanging I made and I am still trying to perfect landscape quilting.
