as a new quilter, i have found the thing i need most is patience.  quilting is not a rush project

it is great therapy, wrap your mind around it and take the time to enjoy what you are doing

for me it just feels great to take my time even though i could probably work faster

Welcome.   That's a great piece of advice.  I find when I take my time and don't rush, things actually go together faster because I make fewer mistakes. :-)

Sound advice!  I find that if I put on music I love that it helps me slow down and enjoy the creative process of quilting.  Music and quilting and quilting are both great stress relievers for me.  When I'm able, I have "marathon" sewing days and sometimes stay in my jammies all day long and just sew sew sew.  I know it's time to quit when I start making mistakes!

               Welcome, Grammie! I hesitated to start quilting for this reason. The whole process of quilting has taught me patience. Also, like Joni, I love to listen to music while quilting, especially my gospel music.   Thanks for the reminder that it is great therapy. Sometimes when mistakes are made and its not turning out the way I like," Frustration" takes over.   Hope you enjoy your time here with us.     Susan

It's what I must have as I am ripping out stitches that a quilter put in but did not look right to me. I don't have to do the whole thing just some of the work. Still it might take me a few weeks...

Patience is a must in this craft!!...LOL

I like the mention of music. I am going to try putting on some great tunes my next quilting day. Thanks

My husband surprised me one day by putting a TV in my sewing room. It is mounted on the wall so it is out of the way. It helps me stay focused because I can listen to it an sew all the time instead of running out to the family room when I hear something I like on the TV. Also, I have a son with Tourette's syndrome, along with ADHD and bi polar. If that doesn't teach you patience, nothing will. He taught me a lot as a matter of fact and that has helped me with my quilting and other aspects of my live. He will be 33 in 3 weeks. I thank God for him everyday.
