I consider myself an Intermediate. Would love to be more!! Love learning new techniques!

I'm not an art quilter or a follower of trends, I am a judicious learner of new techniques, am generous in sharing what I know. I love what I do, what others create, and get suspicioius when someone tries to make out that quilting is hard to learn or has to be perfect. I do it with joy and hope everyone else does too. How do I rate? I doubt anyone who has recieved a quilt I made will ever forget me. That's good enough for me.

Someone on this board coined the phrase "Cozy Quilter" I love that term and it describes me. It's something that I love, but my quilts are not perfect nor will they probably ever be. But you can wrap up in them and be warm and know that they were made with love.

Getting to be a more confident beginner. Never will be as skilled as some I see on this board but that's okay, I enjoy what I can do.

How do I rate myself as a quilter... well, as far as piecing and actual quilting go, definitely a beginner who is loving the learning process of new techniques (new to me anyway...).
As an "enjoyer" of quilting, then I'm in the Superbowl of quilting! I love every minute I'm touching fabric, buying fabric, re-purposing fabric, cutting fabric, sewing/piecing fabric, quilting fabric, binding fabric, hugging up in fabric, giving fabric (in a quilt) away... sigh.... There's nothing I don't love about this phenomenon!!!! As an "enjoyer" I'm an expert!!!

I am a very "insecure"??? quilter. I can' believe anyone who tells me my quilts are pretty. I just don't believe them!!!!

I have done different levels of difficulty, pieced quilts for close to 40 years, and think that I am still a beginner. There is always so much to learn out there. I have given away more quilts than I will ever be able to remember.

I did tell my daughters that when I die, the custom around here at the wake, is to have a slide show of family pictures, and I don't want that. what I would like instead, is for anyone who has gotten a quilt from me, to bring it and lay it across the back of a pew. That is how I want to be remembered. Hope that doesn't sound to morbid.

Somewhere between beginner and average. I kind of like simpler designs. I have no desire to do a quilt or wall hanging with thousands and thousands of pieces. I do want to make a lone star quilt one of these days and already have my pattern for it. There is a turtle in the star - very pretty pattern I think. I've made lots of quilts for Christmas gifts and baby showers and none have been returned, so I guess I'm doing ok. :lol:
