cutting remarks and quilt police

well, I have got myself in it again. I volunteered to make a quilt for a little girl whose parents are going through a bit of trouble. pink and purple, so I am cutting, cutting, cutting along with the pieces I already cut for Ann Smith's next summer mystery. Cutting, cutting, cutting.

now about those quilt police, I read a wonderful post from Nicole at Sister's Choice quilts on how she approaches making quilts. It was very liberating for those of us who are still wary of the "Quilt Police".

And speaking of Nicole, she met a wonderful challenge, from Camille at Simplify and Carrie from Miss Rosie's quilts, to post your first and most current quilt. Very brave woman. Me, not so brave but I am working on it.

A big warm smiling Hellos to another woman who shares the same day of birth and also occupation in my most loved place, California!
Let me also send you my wishes to have more and more years to come in health, happiness and love dear Mary:) May this celebration of ours on every Aug 12 continue with no interruption.

I loved to read your note, very many thanks from the heart. I had a magnificent day. Hope you too.

Hugs & Gods forever love~

what a great challenge. I even have the FIRST quilt I ever made, umm, well, a LONG time ago! I was 11 yo, and I'm a grandmother now! I have great memories of that quilt--it was inspired by my grandmother in an effort to entertain me during the days all one summer. hand quilted by my mother, grandmother, and I. well used. tattered. precious.

Ahh those darn quilt police. I'm glad this is an older post so hopefully you've squashed those concerns by now. I still get the sweats over my quilting imperfections around those certain few quilters...I have one quilt police member in particular who LOVES to rip apart my work. But you know what? I think that means she's a little bit jealous. Lol* So phooey on her. :)
