  1. Michele says:

    I’d have to say intermediate. I’ve been quilting for a long time, but I do a lot of my piecing by hand. Getting better at machine piecing, but when things have to match up, I do it by hand

  2. Lisa McGriff says:

    I would say I am an intermediate quilter!

  3. Debbie M says:

    I’m in between intermediate and advanced. And, though you didn’t ask, but you sometimes do ask, my favorite block in today’s post is Ruffled Feathers by Jennifer Oden. Love the fabrics she used!

  4. Jan Horton says:

    Intermediate quilter. Always looking for new ways to use scraps and perfect my stars…

    I am an intermediate quilter. I love this blog hop and enjoy visiting all the different designers. I love the Snow Star block that you featured on Tuesday.

  12. Ruthie Butterfield says:

    I’m somewhere n the middle. I’ve been doing ‘patchwork’ quilts since I was a teenager, but am learning that the craft has come a LONG way since my Gramma taught me so long ago. I’m having fun learning new piecing techniques, etc. & am planning some quilts that would feature my hand embroidery. Thinking of trying my hand at hand appliques also to add a new flair like Gramma used to do, but she never had a chance to teach me.

  13. Ruth says:

    I guess I would have to say intermediate. I still haven’t mastered all techniques, but am working on hand appliqué now.

  14. Mary says:

    Definitely a beginner….and wanting to learn
