I have seen many people here unsatisfied with the results of their machine quilting, ready to quilt, and unhappy about it all together. I always think that the only way to get good at it is to practice, but it never occur to me that what we sometimes are so upset about is a master piece for the untrained eye, usually the eyes that belong to the head buying the pieces. We struggle for perfection, while the buyers can't tell one from another. I bring this up because I found a quilt artist that owns a gallery and apparently makes a living with it. Please keep in mind that I am not criticizing, just bringing up the point that even though is great to aim for improvement, is OK not to be perfect from time to time.
