    There is alot of talk about the quilting Police and since I break so many rules. :twisted: I think I might like to know just in case they show up at my door. Also If I knew what they looked like It might be my next Halloween costume. Descriptions Please!

    They have good disguises, and look quite like normal quilters.
    Check their tongue .... as that's the true indentifying factor!!!

    Well, I'm not 100% sure, but some of the quilting fairy godmothers at paper panache look pretty suspicious

    They do look scary. I don't think I would open the door for most of them.

    Hmmm.... I always picture them as really strict librarians with the "eagle eye" that finds every minor fault and holds a magnifying glass just in case they don't see an error right away ;)

    Yeah, they wear alot of disguises, but they always end up wearing a 'church lady' look on their faces when they happen upon someone elses quilt

    Trust me ! You will know .. they come in many forms , but give themselves away pretty quickly!
    They typically start with phrases Like : "I would never", or "Is this your first quilt?" or the most obvious "why don't you....."
    Or the most offensive "a good quilter would have......"

    I have seen the quilt police and they look like this puckered mouth short lady with eye glasses on her head. The sounds she makes are clicking of the tongue,hmmmm....then she raddles off all the bad things about the quilt stomps her feet then insults your quilt that you are working on. Ohhhh she also carries a big purse and gives you a ticket.

    "O" No" I think she lives down the road from me. She looks just like your picture except I haven't notice the Q on her shirt. I going to have to keep my eye on her. Thanks

    Police: "That is such an old fashioned way. I would...."

    Quilting is a very fashionable way of expressing ones self.

    My quilt police who judges my quilts so harshly looks very much like the lady I see in the mirror. Mind you, this police woman only picks on me. Her voice says "if you are going to put the effort into this, you need to make it your best effort. This seam could be moved over just a whisker."

    I wish she would be quiet sometimes.

    Uses a lot of ...
    * you should have's
    * pointy fingers
    * stern, disdainful looks

    and often with beady eyes looking over her nose in the air!

    I think she looks like this woman I keep meeting at the cutting table who feels my fabric and informs me that the fabric I have chosen is too thin for a "quality" quilt. The fabrics that I chose don't seem to blend as well as she thinks they should either, and the fabric is all wrong for the pattern that I am using. She has burgundy hair and zebra striped glasses, two inch nails and a king sized quilted purse. I wish I could plan my shoping trips better so that I could avoid her all together. :roll:

    SCARY!! This looks like the profile pics of one of QB's members. She also looks like one of the more stern Fairy Godmothers people were creating

    Mine was a little more ummm "healthy" looking and she added the usual....what machine did you use, well blah, blah, blah works sooooo much better...and what thread did you use...well mumble, mumble, mumble is a much better brand, and you bought your fabric at a yard sale....well I never!!! Yep, blah, blah, blah, and mumble, mumble, mumble, and oh yeah, I KNOW YOU never.....that's why she's the quilt po-po, and I'm not

    :P :P :P

    I quit going to our local group because they criticized my shortcuts-

    haha, I just realized it really is a shortcut when you fold your fabric four times and cut across the WOF with a short ruler!!!
