    Hi Everyone,

    I was wondering what type of a Quilter are you?

    I was reading this article and lots of catergories for quilters.

    http://with-heart-and-hands.blogspot...r-are-you.html

    Which category do you fall in or more than 1??

    1. Traditional Quilter
    2. Folk Art Quilter
    3. Liberated Quilter
    4. Modern Quilter
    5. Art Quilter
    6. Fused Quilter
    7. Crazy Quilter
    8. Kit Quilter
    9. Machine Quilter
    10. Hand Quilter

    You can be more than 1. This should be a fun topic! Enjoy!

    I did not read the article, but I am guessing I am the lazy procrastinating type. Kinda helps if you know yourself, I guess.

    OK, I am all of the above except for Kit quilter. I have only done one kit, and it was for a class that Frieda Anderson taught. It was great getting hand dyed fabrics for the artist herself, and it came out pretty.

    I just like to quilt and I like all types of quilts.

    You also forgot the "talks bout quilting more than actually doing the quilting" category. lol That's where I live lots of times.

    Other than that, I am a Traditional Quilter with a twist.

    Machine quilter and I suppose a combination of it all. I make what I like. I really like the strip quilts. Just NO hand quilting because my hands can't handle it.

    I'd have to say traditional....I love the look of old quilts and the history behind them. I love using my tradle to quilt. I love hand quilting too. Makes me feel very connected with my ancestors.

    I'm to new at quilting to tell you what type I am. When I look at my wish list, there is a little bit of everything on there! So......I guess I'm a "can't make up her mind yet" quilter. :)

    Lately I seem to be more of a block maker than a quilter!

    I'm with you, but I have another type that I actually fit into better. I'm a Topper. I like to piece the tops, but then let someone else quilt them. That part just doesn't interest me a whole lot. But I do like to put on the binding myself. That gives me a feeling of accomplishment.

    I'm a traditional quilter but mostly use more modern, brighter colors. Also, a hand quilter. I have done some machine quilting on smaller projects but love the look of hand quilting.

    LORD HAVE MERCY ON MY QUILTING SOUL, quilter?
    I can't even begin to answer this question. I'm all of the above and more... since I long-arm quilt and have customers, I kit quilts and sell them, I quit my job to quilt... now quilting is my job. How do I answer this question. I'm going to stick with my first answer, "Lord have Mercy on my Quilting Soul Quilter."

    I guess I'm traditional and hand quilter. I do piece my quilts on the machine, and sometimes applique on the machine. Any quilting I do on the machine is by using some of the built in stitches like stipples and big circles.
