When others whine and complain about not being able to do something it always irritates me. How do they know they can’t do it unless they try? Then I heard myself complaining and whining about not being able to machine quilt. I was looking at the latest AQS Magazine and moaning over all the fabulous quilters and how I could never do what they do. Well, of course I can’t. I’ve never tried very hard. A few attempts now and then, but when my workmanship is less than ideal, I give up. So today I decided to start working at it – practicing. Yes, practicing. If I practice a little each day I just might eventually improve.
I gathered all my books on machine quilting and the things I have printed out from the internet, and I sat down to read and study. Then I went to the machine and practiced different types of machine quilting.
