I cut too many circles, so cut the extras in half and put them on the borders.

Fortune Cookie
Fear and Desire...Two sides of the same coin

Two weeks ago when I visited the quilt exhibit with my family, we went to lunch afterwards. Each of us read our fortune cookie fortunes and they all related well to quilting.

So many times I have the desire to try a new quilting technique, even though it scares me a little bit.

Determination is what you need now

When I am a bit intimidated trying a new technique, it is always determination that sees me through.

Take the first step today

When you are feeling intimidated about trying something new with your quilting you need to just jump right in....what are you waiting for.....take that first step, and it will lead to the next step, and before you know it you have mastered a new technique to put in your quilters tool box.

Never does nature say one thing and wisdom another

This rings so true for many quilters. Take for instance choosing colors for your quilt. This can be intimidating to so many of us. Look at nature, look at your flowerbeds. Every color of flower looks wonderful next to all of the others. One flower does not take away the beauty of another. We can definitely take our color clues from mother nature.

Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort

As quilters we can all relate to this fortune...

May Your Bobbin Always Be Full,

  1. Such perfect fortunes! I'm going to print them out and post them at my sewing machine to keep me going when I'm a little unsure! Thanks for sharing!
