I got a call last night that the quilt is done! So after work today we are going on a field trip to pick it up. Hopefully this will be my initiation into the quilting world–I’ve noticed that established crafty ladies (usually older ladies) are really unwelcoming to newer crafty ladies (usually younger, like me) until you’ve sort of “proven” that you’re not a dilettante. It took me months at the knitting store for the knitting ladies to accept me, and I noticed that the quilting ladies I’ve encountered during this process have a little of the same attitude.
Overall, though, the quilt ladies been more welcoming than the knitting ladies. Maybe it helps that I came in with a completed quilt top, so they don’t think I’m completely clueless.
Anyway, I’m excited to see it turned into a real quilt!
I agree. Everyone wants you to prove yourself. What happened to welcoming newbies with open arms?
Excited to see your quilt! Good luck!
