Day # 18 Challenge: My Greatest Insecurity!
I have sewn for years..clothes, costumes, decorator items, and since retirement, I have gotten big time into quilting....traditional and art quilts...preferably the fiber arts. But try as I might, I am not good at machine quilting. And my hand quilting is not the greatest! I love to put color together; creating my own designs; adding embellishments, etc. but I am very insecure about my quilting!!! And judges agree with me! When I have entered my quilts in shows, my critiques from the judges are always "love the color, love the design, but the quilting is really crappy!" No, they don't really say "crappy"; they are much more tactful, but that is what they mean!!!
