Sometimes I have a lot of self confidence.
Other times, not so much.
One of those times is when I go to quilt group.
I feel like a complete outsider.
Something to do with the fact that I am not independently wealthy, going to be independently wealthy, or related to anyone that is independently wealthy.
So instead of wallowing in self pity, I'm going to glory in my differences.
Here's my stickin'-it-to-the-man quilt.
The quilt that I made where 99% of the fabric is from an estate/garage sale, free, or from Joann Fabric. Those women 'don't go to Joann's'.
The quilt that I made is completely random and I didn't pick out a pre coordinated fabric kit from a local quilt store and it will not be backed with Minky.
I made this quilt, not in a sewing room, but on a table in my sun room while the girls fought over toys, Meg did play dough or colored and Spencer played on the floor.
This quilt was ironed with an iron that is over 8 years old.
I will not be paying some one to quilt this quilt for me.
It was sewn using a needle that was too big because I had broken all of my other needles while attempting my first machine quilted project, Spencer's baby blanket.
And my machine is not a Bernina.
When I showed the 'ladies' the quilt....?....."That's actually cute."
