I recently attended my second meeting of the local Studio Art Quilt Associates, carrying a stack of sun-printed fabric for show-and-tell. “I still haven’t made a quilt,” I said. One of my new friends responded with something like, “You can’t say that again at the next meeting.” It has been my intent to quilt (or else why did I join?) and her statement made me pull out my rotary cutter and begin. Now I am a quilter!
I didn’t worry about making mistakes or not doing things “right.” I’m going to pick up more little animals at the thrift shop so that I have a reason to learn more techniques such as making different quilting patterns.
