    The words don't bother me. They are in fact, just words.

    I hate being told what to do. That's how one of my quilts is named "You can't put orange with that"..of course there's plenty of orange in it.

    You may not agree with my choice of color or fabric. If it takes my fancy its what I will use.

    I think the fun and the creativity is when you break all the rules of quilting . I'm working on 4 quilts now that if the quilt police seen them I would be put away for life with no parole. LOL, Besides, I'm never going to win any awards for my quilts so why not do them the way I like. All my quilts are to be used and to be enjoyed.

    Same with mine! They are my own and I need them to challenge me.

    Just call me a born rebel, and an independent sort. Reminds me of that song "I did it my way".

    There are no quilt police here. Only in our own minds.

    No such thing as Quilt Police! Quilting is our hobby and meant to be stress-free. Of course there are certain things you should do, but hey, have a good time! If we stress over stuff, it's no fun anymore, right?

    They are in my mind to guide me to the best way something will look when it is finished. And I, too, usually don't do anything I am ordered to do. March to the beat of my own drum.

    Quilt police never bother me. Give them a doughnut and away they go.
    Truly, I never worry what someone else thinks. I make my patterns when I see the fabric. Delexia has it perks.
    Color choice is yours to make. My daughter wanted her quilt primary colors with orange sashing and borders.
    I followed her plan, everyone that sees her quilt wants it.
    PS. If a burglar was to break in her room I am sure the bright colors would scare him off. (HA HA)
