I'm a better quilter now then I was then because I've learned to set aside my fear that what I make won't be perfect. I've come to accept those imperfections as creative challenges and now I almost look forward to sewing myself into a corner, because it means I'll have to figure out how to get out of it. 

Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.

I am a better quilter now because I have learned so much from this group, from our retreats, and from my LQS.  I have learned that I will never be perfect, so I no longer stress over that and just enjoy what I'm doing and what I've created.  I'm getting braver at trying things that are more difficult and being rewarded by being able to do them, maybe not correctly at first, but practice has made the difficult a little easier and a little prettier.
