Advice for new quilters
Posted January 9, 2009on:
My tech guy says i should always impart some of my phenomenally extensive wisdom on this blog. (FYI, I have a dry sarcastic humor, don’t take it personally)
So here goes: I know that a lot of you new quilters are afraid of making mistakes so you are afraid to try something new. We would all be laying in our cribs drooling and saying “googoo” if we didn’t try something new and different.
For me, its challenges. I join the ones I can to push myself to try something new that i wouldn’t think to try on my own. There is no such thing as bad work. Say it LOUD, say it often! If you love what you’re doing, who else should care? After all these years in the business, I’ve come up with one motto [albeit about clothing construction]: if it’s perfect and all the stripes match, its home-made, store-bought never matches.
