The words might seem redundant, but on that long road from quilt idea to quilt completion, a ‘quilted quilt’ means you’re nearly to the finish line. And that’s where I am… with the last of the quilts I sent out for quilting now home again, and only their bindings left to do 🙂
Overall, it was a good experience – the trying out of different quilters and their styles – and along the way reinforcing for myself a few lessons about working well with others. (We’re always learning, right?)
#2 Be appreciative of the efforts others make on your behalf. If results don’t match expectations, acknowledge their efforts graciously and move on. I didn’t love all the quilting equally, but I don’t doubt that each quilter did her best for me. Practice gratitude.
#3 Collaborative work between people with a common passion can inspire everyone involved. I work alone because it satisfies my introverted soul – but working with others allows me to encourage and be encouraged to new ways of thinking and doing. It’s all good.
