At a sew day, I asked a lady to give me suggestions on quilting a quilt I’d just sandwiched.

The first thing she said was starting in the center so any excess could be pushed to the edges…..WRONG. That will result in ripples somewhere. If my top isn’t flat, I want to quilt in any excess spots….which better be few.

Then she started fussing with my seams, which I realized I hadn’t done such a good job pressing-not like I usually do.

It went further downhill with her picky fingers on my quilt.

Pet, what Iíve discovered through my quilting and Boom journeys is that there are many ways to do things and what is right for one may not be right for another. Donít be discouraged if you are getting good results. It helps for all to keep an open mind. Have a pleasant evening.

Pet sorry for the discouraging remarks, hopefully you can put this behind and take her comments with a grain of salt
