THE QUILT POLICE!!!! August 27 2014
WHO ARE THEY?
Well, okay. They are working on a fictional television crime.
THESE GUYS ARE NOT COMING AFTER YOU!
This woman is not under arrest for a "QUILT CRIME"!!!
She did something much worse!!!!
You will NOT have to answer to "CHARGES" if you make a mistake.
THERE ARE NO QUILT POLICE.
THEY DO NOT EXIST.
Nobody is perfect. True enough, we all want our points to match up. You want your stitches in the right place, but let's face it. Mistakes happen. And if they do, so what? Learn from them. Correct them if you can. But do not let it stop you!!! Keep going!!! You would be hard pressed to look at any quilt and NOT find a mistake. BIG DEAL!!!
But if you are frightened of 'THE QUILT POLICE', it may be holding you back from finishing a project, or trying something new.
ARE YOU HESITATING FROM TRYING A NEW METHOD BECAUSE YOU HAVE DEEMED YOURSELF NOT GOOD ENOUGH?
GOOD ENOUGH FOR WHAT?
Oh my good grief! You're kidding. GET OVER IT!!! If we all worried that our quilts were not good enough to go to the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky, then NONE OF US WOULD BE QUILTING!!!!
GET OUT THERE AND TRY SOMETHING NEW!
