    if somebody will offer to organize this as an activity, i'll stickyfy it. by organize, i don't mean making it all complicated or setting rules. just keeping track of who wants to be a mentor, who needs a mentor, and who's been matched up.

    if readers see results, the topic will hold more interest and generate more participation.

    Even though this was my idea, I am not computer savvy or knowledgeable enough to do this, is there a volunteer out there?
    (please, please, please)

    I would be glad to help someone who is just starting to make quilts.
    I have been quilting for many years. Have done several different patterns but tend to stick with simple block designs, strip piece when I can.
    I sew one an old New Home machine, and just learning to do a little quilting with it.

    If anyone thinks I may be able to help you get started, let me know.

    You will get more interest if you would post some pics of projects along the way. Things that you are discussing between Mommy and adoptee. It doesn't have to be a finished project. A lot of young(new) quilters would benefit from seeing an idea from begining to finish or to see your attempts to master a technique. Please share whatever you can. Too many only want to post the end product but the process of learning is beneficial to all too.

    I am open to adopt anyone. I noticed farnsworth lives in Maine, I live in MA.
    Scrap quilts and log cabins are my favorites, I don't know anything about art quilts (except that they are beautiful)!
    I love redwork and needle turn applique.
    I am willing to take on a beginner or advanced beginner, or anyone interested.

    Who would like me to be their Mommy?

    I too would like to be "adopted". I know only how to do "basic" (1/4" seams) blocks. I would love to learn art quilting as well as paper piecing and how to stitch in the ditch. I can't seem to stay in the ditch no matter how slow I go.

    TerryL, I will adopt you if you think I will be able to help you.
