I have always been quite upfront with the fact that my quilting is much better than my piecing. Free motion quilting in particular makes my heart sing. My piecing? Meh. A means to have something to quilt. I know this is somewhat unusual for a quilter.
This picture is for all you fabulous quilters who look at free motion quilting or free motion quilting with rulers and think, "I hope I don't mess this up." Because that's pretty much my feeling as I piece today.
But we don't get better if we just stick to what we've always done. One thing I do know is that facing our fears and push past our comfort zone is where we really grow. Maybe it's quilting, maybe it's something else.
Face them. Push on past. Keep on stitching!
