    If I can help someone, I am willing to do all I can. Just PM me.
    I forgot to say I can't PP very well.

    Some one who can help me learn to do paper piecing can adopt me. My son choose a pattern and I said Ya Right! But he keeps asking I have no clue and I want to enlarge the blocks and just do like maybe 4 in the center of the quilt. Let me see if I can find a link. Here we go is he expecting way to much? Looks like it to me.

    I really need a mommy! I know how to use a sewing machine, never touched a long arm machine. I would love to learn hand quilting. I'm not saying that I won't machine quilt, I just want to be able to hand quilt. Please adopt me :oops:

    I do love to paper piece, as well as piece and applique :D:D:D

    Amma, pick me...pick me please! I started learning to quilt in 2008. Right after my first class, my daughter and grandson moved in with us and I lost my sewing area. She's moving out in two months and I want to get serious about this. I'm on the board almost daily and I love to learn. PP and applique are two of the things I'm most interested in learning right now. I have no idea how to attach either on my own.

    :oops:

    I'm with quazyquilter, QuiltingGrannie, Amme and Sewnsewer2. I've sewed for 41 years and quilted for 15. I've done beginner blocks, curved, PP, applique, some machine quilting and absolutely love hand-quilting. I know I don't know everything because there's too many areas to specialize in, but if anyone has a question that I can answer, please feel free. I'll do my best. PM me if you would like. :thumbup:

    I would love to help someone, though I will admit I'm a little intimidated by having to do it in cyberspace. I am a fairly experienced quilter but a "techi" I am not!! I can help with machine piecing of most sorts, I love hand work, such as applique, embroidery, hand quilting. Love the design process, rarely follow a pattern exactly, and love to choose my own fabrics and colors. Can't help too much with machine quilting, or machine applique. If it sounds like I could be a good "mom" for you, let me know!

    What I have learned or been taught is via a co-worker and here on the board.

    Or am I one that is 'stuck in the middle"?
    I feel like you, It's been only a little while since piecing my first quilt, I too have so much to learn.

    Not an expert at all but willing gladly to lend a bit of advice, and if I dont have it I can find the answer. The only dumb question is the one you didn't ask. So.. newbies.. PM me I am glad to be help.

    This is a great idea, I have been quilting for just a year, but have done lots of a variety of different things but lack on finishing components, such as binding and quilting. Am not interested in hand quilting in the least... So needless to say I don't have any questions right now but would love a quilting mommy!

    I think anyone who feels confident enough to answer questions and "walk" someone new through the process can fit the "veteran" category.

    I am so excited about this new endeavor :D:D:D
    I wonder if we can get it stickied to the top of the Main section? That way it will be seen by more, and we can get more adoptions going :D:D:D
