"Odd Man Out" by Elennah
Quilter's are a curious bunch. We all use the same basic materials (fabric, thread, needles, etc.); however, the end results are as varied as are we. And sometimes those results are not necessarily understood or appreciated by others. Have you ever been to a meeting where an individual stood up to shown a piece of work they were especially proud of only to receive "well that's interesting" comments from the audience? It's at those times that the phrase "if you can't say something nice, then don't say anything at all" comes to mind.
Everyone has their own unique perspective when it comes to creating a quilt. Wouldn't it be boring if we all made the same types of quilts? So the next time you are shown a quilt that just doesn't appeal to you personally, try to find some aspect that you can praise. Maybe you like the unusual fabrics, or the outstanding quilting. Remember we are all here to support each other and the work we are doing. We should be our biggest cheering squad. Go Quilter's!!
