  •  Just do it! (10+ / 0-)

    What's the worst that can happen? You mess up a few pieces of fabric that aren't doing anything but collecting dust?

    Take a beginner's class. If you have a Joanns anywhere nearby they run less than $50 and if you catch them during one of their specials you can get it for less than that. Once you learn the basics it's just a matter of doing it. Your skill with develop the more you quilt, just the same as anything else. Really, how well did any of us cook when we first began to make meals for ourselves or a family? You get better the more you do it.

    But, be forewarned - it's positively addictive! The simplest blocks can be used to create beautiful, complex looking designs that beginning quilters can do easily. You don't have to get crazy and do what I'm doing. LOL Trust me, I've had to tear out more than a few seams and redo them to get them right, which makes each block take a little longer than it should. But, what the heck, it's going to beautiful when it's finished even if every little stitch and seam isn't quite perfect.

    Come to the Sunday evening DK Quilt Guild diaries. There are lots of folks there who will gladly help you, and the members are all along the spectrum from beginners to advanced. But, all of them are generous in sharing their knowledge and encouraging to everyone. The quilters' motto is "Each one teach one."

    JUST DO IT!!! Then, take pics to share.

    Peace.

    Creativity is intelligence having fun.
