When I see a new quilter in a store I want to just hug them and say, "You are going to have so much fun!"
    You said it.... Jenny has ushered hundreds of new Quilter's into our world! I know she brought me bac....after nearly a year of nit even touching my sewing machine.... She has a very special...and rare gift..... She's a natural teacher.....and quite willing to laugh at herself... She has encouraged us alll.... Telling us that yes...we can make pretty quilts.... We can do it... Jenny and precuts were made for each other....and we have all benefitted....

      Re: Defying the quilt police

      I am happy to follow the rules but I always want to know why and how? So I do tend to test the 'rule police'. LOL My teacher fussed at me in my first class to not 'whack it off' but make it line up correctly. LOL She was right of course, but it became our joke that I was the class person who wanted to know why or I would make up my own way. ;-)

        BeckyHatcher, I agree there are so many rules for us to follow in life it is fun and freeing to enjoy the quilting process. I usually end up changing my mind at least once (usually more) from when the quilt starts to when it's finished. Along the way I've made my share of mistakes and also learned as I went.

          I haven't read these type of posts when giving advice to newbies. I find this forum really varied in the methods, colors, and patterns we use. I like reading all the different advice. I really haven't seen anyone get upset or demand someone do it a specific way.

          Because I don't appreciate being called names - like Quilt Police (which is the title the OP used in this thread)
          I don't get offended when someone goes with a different border color or chooses to use a different thread or pattern. I give my advice based on my experience and knowledge. I shrug it off and move on.
          She's calling me QP when I give advice that steers the OP from doing something different? She's the one who is bent.

            Have mercy.

            A low post count member who never singled anyone out is accused of singling someone out.

            Very friendly and welcoming.

                I did not see YOU mentioned at ALL in her post. In fact, she even stated it wasn't even from this board. So why are you so twisted about it? Guilty conscience?

                  This is the second time within the last two weeks someone has brought that other board over here. I could care less. And the QP thing is like beating a dead rock.

                      True. But no guilty conscience here.
