Intermediate if you are talking about piecing, but when it comes to quilting I consider myself a beginner.

Piecing would be a different rating than quilting.
A very good point!

I always call myself an advanced beginner. I can make several "styles" but I don't seem to get any better in quality. Don't really care too much.

I am an un-experienced quilter. In other words I really don't know what I am doing most of the time. I have only been trying to learn to quilt for about 2 years. A friend
showed me how to hand stitch a quilt top my grandmother made . I finished it in one year. But since I have made very plain small quilts. (I am learning how to quilt through this site and just trying things on my own.) I also sew quilts together on the sewing machine. I don't know if I will ever do another by hand.

I love the fact,no matter where you are, you ALWAYS learn. Whether it be large or small.

Piecing intermediate began in 1960's. Hand quilting also intermediate began in 1950's. FMQ beginner have done less than a dozen quilts began last December. Appliqué beginner have done very few over the years.

I like valsma's mention that she is in it for herself. I feel that the point for quilting for me is that I enjoy doing and learning the techniques. I'm a beginner below beginner in FMQ. Don't seem to have the patience for getting it right. I can piece really good now that I have a 1/4 inch foot for my sewing machine. Before that my machine sewed all over the place!! :)
