Yesterday I was showing my SIL a table runner I was making for my mom. While looking it over, she noticed the hand quilting I had completed and said "I don't know if you realize this or not but there's an easier way to do this. You make a tie in the center of each square." She then proceded to tell me step by step how to accomplish this technique as if it was the newest thing in quilting. When she was done.....and it was a long lesson :)...........she finished by saying "I'm so glad I could contribute something to your new hobby. If you need more help, just let me know." I was trying not to laugh or be ungrateful but I thought I was moving ahead in my quilting education/journey by attempting hand quilting or FMQ. Maybe my hand quilting wasn't quite up to par. LOL How do you all handle well meaning advice????
