    Yup, those are the quilt police :mrgreen: I meet some every once and a while, thank them for their opinion and do what I want on MY quilt.

    Just ten or so days ago, I was at a quilt shop with my paint cards to pick some fabics for a lone star...a lady there asked me what I was shopping for, and I told her I was participating in a challenge to make a quilt using colors only from two paint cards that were selected for me, they were in shades of peach nd orange and I was going to make a lone star. She said that would be pretty and went on to ask me what color I was going to use for the background...I showed her the faint peach batik I picked, and she went on to tell me that it won't work unless I used a white or black background :roll: I thanked her and told her I will think about it. Well I made my star and guess what olor background I used :?: And it seemed to work just fine.

    They are the three bitty witches who came in the quilt shop and examined every one of my eight bags and had the owner put a pin in the three places where there was a bobble. They had to turn things inside out and pull and tug, but they found them.

    The rest of us look at a quilt as a whole and appreciate the beauty. We say done is best. WE do not criticize especially when we could not do any better

    From the ones I've met,(have to say I've only come across one or two) they seem to be the ones who have quilted for years and used to doing things the "old way" and not interested in learning something new.
    I've taught myself how to quilt and would love to have the help of someone who's been "around the block",so to speak but don't want someone who thinks their way is the only way. I may not being it right but if I'm happy with what I've done; what difference does it make if I made a few so-called mistakes. I might like learning if I need to do something better but maybe I'm just happy that I could do it. Chris
