"Jenifer, next time you're outlining, try putting a rice bag or something similar right next to the back roller. (l learned this from watching Sharon Schambers video, )it holds the quilt right down on the machine bed, giving you more control…"

"Riana, I'm in the same place as you.  I got my mid arm and frame in January.  After MUCH practice and adjustments, I've completed four quilts, each one a little better than the last.  I'm really starting to enjoy it.…"

"It's been a l-o-n-g time since I was a beginner, (one tends to forget those painful experiences in life-),but recently I've put my new mid-arm machine in a frame. I was under the assumption that I could pick up where FMQ left off'…"

"Karen, you are so funny!  But inspirational.  My quilts are far from perfect, too, but they get better and better with each one.  I think it is fun to try new designs and challenge yourself.  "

"I am lucky not to be a perfectionist so I can just jump in and try anything. That being said I do own some really ugly quilts. But those are old ones and I still use them...the colors are great..just not in front of anyone :) But now I own some…"

"Awesome, Diana!  You have a great attitude.  It's also amazing to look back at some of your first quilts as time goes by to see how much you have learned and improved.  Quilting just keeps getting better the more you practice.…"

Diana Lewis replied to Joyce Restaino's discussion How do I get over making mistakes in the group Newbies
"I am very much a newbie - I've made 3 table runners so far.  I was afraid of making a mistake, but then I realized if I don't just do it, I'll sit here staring at fabric and a sewing machine for years!  For the quilt itself,…"

Cheri Foster replied to Joyce Restaino's discussion How do I get over making mistakes in the group Newbies
"I come from the same school of thought.  If you unsew more than two times the block becomes distorted and the fabric may tear.  I just throw that block away and start over.  Little mistakes dissapear when quilted such as a chopped off…"

Ethelda Hillsman replied to Joyce Restaino's discussion How do I get over making mistakes in the group Newbies
"You have received some great advice. My rule of thumb is 'unsew no more than 2 times'. If it still is not perfect, LIVE with it. lol Vicki's analogy to the galloping horse is a good one to keep in mind. Another quilter friend also…"

Rose James replied to Joyce Restaino's discussion How do I get over making mistakes in the group Newbies
"I second this advice from Jennifer S.  Mistakes can almost always be un-done one way or another, so it is ok to make them. Worst case, you might have to completely remake a block or so. One time I decided a paricular fabric just…"
