    I went to a lecture and they said to be a good quilter you need to have patience, good knowledge of geometry and a precise nature. Do you think that is true?

    It might help but I think if you are more relaxed you might be able to make wonky quilts and those are so darn cute. Well I got the geometry and precise nature but what is patience?
