    My favorite is piecing. I’ve enjoyed the group that I work with once a week and we all
    learn from each other. This is an addictive hobby and so much fun.

  4. Susan Davies says:

    I would have to say machine piecing and qui;ting are what I do best. I am just starting to try my hand at other techniques. I am hoping to become profiecent.

    I like all types but I like to do machine quilting the best.

  7. Doreen Huston says:

    I am torn, really! I just love fabric and putting it together to make it live amongst us. Not sure what technique I prefer because it varies, depending on what I’m trying to create. The book would be a helpful and inspirational addition to my expanding imagination.

  8. Darlene Crosby says:

    wish I could paper piece

  13. Barbara Smith says:

    Been quilting for a few years and have recently purchased a Bernina 820, Quilt Motion and a 10′ Grace Company frame.
