    I have seen the quilt police and they look like this puckered mouth short lady with eye glasses on her head. The sounds she makes are clicking of the tongue,hmmmm....then she raddles off all the bad things about the quilt stomps her feet then insults your quilt that you are working on. Ohhhh she also carries a big purse and gives you a ticket.

    "O" No" I think she lives down the road from me. She looks just like your picture except I haven't notice the Q on her shirt. I going to have to keep my eye on her. Thanks

    Police: "That is such an old fashioned way. I would...."

    Quilting is a very fashionable way of expressing ones self.

    My quilt police who judges my quilts so harshly looks very much like the lady I see in the mirror. Mind you, this police woman only picks on me. Her voice says "if you are going to put the effort into this, you need to make it your best effort. This seam could be moved over just a whisker."

    I wish she would be quiet sometimes.

    Just look in the mirror! You are your own QP.

    and often with beady eyes looking over her nose in the air!
