Reminders

I chatted with a friend yesterday that was full of reminders, good reminders. In the quilt life we need good teaching, teachers, and good reminders.

Here’s a few good reminders:

You can machine quilt. It takes a little time to find the best way for you to do it, however You can machine quilt.

You can make quilts that make YOU happy. It takes a little time to find the fabrics that make your heart sing, it’s possible, and glorious.

two of my favorite tools, seam ripper and stiletto

You can cut well. Finding the rotary cutter, ruler, mats, and other tools take a bit of time. You’re worth the time and investment to find the right tools.

Seam rippers were invented for a reason.

There’s more than one way to quilt and whatever we choose is the right one.
machine quilting whole cloth quilts of my own design, check!
competing – check (yes, this makes me happy)
teaching is the best experience!
writing is fun
I’m unique, and interesting, and weird.

Comparative thinking is part of what we do, it’s self-damaging, and getting over that is the one of the best things we can do for each other.

I’m available to come teach here’s the link to my classes. If your guild would like to hire me to come lecture and teach or  you have any questions please contact me terificreations at gmail dot com.

Happy quilting!

  1. Great post – yes, we CAN!!

    Love your little tins! My mom wasn’t a seamstress, never could use a machine, but she could sew by hand! I have her “Charles Chips” tin with her sewing items in. It is a treasure!
