I decided the teacher knew best and I find I still put alot of yellow in my quilts. I don't remember what the QP looked like, but I will remember her words for ever,
    I was told the same, then I started adding the orange. LOL
    By the way I am also fond of sea turtles.

    I am always out of yellow. The second quilt is the one that brought out the quilt police. LOL

    Yellow is happy. I painted my farm house yellow.

    She abuses logic by contradicting her own statements. She loves words like "lovely", "should" and "BUT..." (It,s lovely But you really SHOULD havedone etc).

    I have met one. She owns a popular LQS here. Took one class and refuse to even shop in her store now! She looked fairly normal. I think they are very hard to spot!

    Not sure. But I don't think my quilts are well received.

    Some beautiful quilts there AnnaQuilts ..... if the 2nd one doesn't have a name, perhaps it should be Caribbean Sunrise ... lovely presentation, and reminds me of time spent in the Caribbean.

    And pffffffft to your QP encounter!

    They have beautifully quilted riot gear and instead of Billy clubs they carry really big seam rippers.

    OMG! I think I've met her. I KNOW I saw her at the Market in Houston last year! She has several clones, too, but they all have that same hawk-eye, and the nose turns slightly upward. You probably know her, too. :lol:

    Believe us you will know when they show up. They will know it all and let you know everything you are doing wrong.

    Love it!!!! They're always wearing quilted jackets with matching skirts, aren't they? And carry a scrapbook under their arm of all the quilts they've ever made, with closeups of all the matching corners, and perfect miters.

    I think we're all venting here a little bit, aren't we? :lol:

    Usually found in pairs, often found in quilting guilds, making snarky comments to each other, feeling oh so superior. They are to be ignored. May their thread rot!!

    AnnaQuilts, that second quilt photo is absolutely gorgeous!! I just want to run over to it and wrap myself in all that sunshine! And someone was critical of that?!?

    I think the quilting police are the people who have to cut down everyone else's efforts in able to make their own efforts seem better. Nasty horrible (scared, insecure and probably lonely) people.
