    That the only critic is me and there is so much encouragement and "new to me" ideas to try that I get right back to my machine with enthusiasm, not dread of failure.

    That we are all human and we should never stop learning. Don't rush the process, relax and enjoy it. Life is way too short.

    Everyone has ufo's and no ones space stays neet and tidy when they are in the middle of a project. I also learned to clean up between projects. That way you don't have such a mess and you don't have to take the time to majorly "swamp" it out as often.

    I am learning to do binding. I didnt do it before...I always use this fold around way my MIL taught me, so no binding.

    I learned it is okay to do it your own way! Think outside the box! I have diffrent ideas on quilting than my friends, felt like an outsider, but then I realize that is just my "quilting style" and that is cool!

    i have learned a lot of things on this board-quilting tips, i will always see even more quilts that i want to make and the term "cozy quilter", but i love the organization tips that have been on here. i'm still working on implementing them.

    My recent "learn"....take a picture of a scrappy quilt layout and look at it on the computer. I recently moved the blocks 3 times to change color sequence...and I thought the first layout was good! Also, when doing darks/lights.....take a pic and put it in computer and change colors to black and white. It'll show you whether you have something in the wrong value.
