I am not a quilter. I follow various quilting blogs in my efforts to glean little pearls of wisdom about quilting but many times I come away more confused.
I haven't quite cracked it.......haven't walked across that magic threshold of quilterdom......haven't passed into the hallowed halls of fat quarters, cake thingys, charms, and jelly rolls.
What I really need I guess is a good quilting book but I know myself too well. I would look at the pretty pictures and not learn much. I'm one of those people that need to see how things are done visually......and hands on. Once I do, I'm all set and away I go.
So when I find a little gem of a video like the following I have one of those AHA moments:)
I didn't know what a Y-seam was or a Tumbling Block but now I do.
As I watched and learned, I also had an epiphany. I realized I don't want to be a quilter. I think it's possibly too structured for me and that's why I have never really put my heart into it fully. I enjoy looking at it, watching it being made, seeing the end product and marveling at the talent of the many amazing quilters out there. But, I don't want to do it myself. Ah well.
