QUILTERS ARE NICE PEOPLE
As I've been blog hopping in the Red White Blue Blog Hop, it occurred to me as I read through the comments left on each quilters blog site, that everyone received nothing but Praise, Encouragement, Pats on the Back, and a Big Ol dose of "You Go Girlfriend, Job Well Done!"
Regardless of each other's level of proficiency, every one was left feeling they had done a good job and their work appreciated. How many places can you go in a day and get 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, or
more"Atta Girls"? I doubt that many of us get that much validation in an entire year or even 10 years! I guess women and even some men have known about this mutual admiration society for a very long time,

I had a non-blogging quilting friend ask me about what I was working on in my latest quilting projects. When I told her I was making blocks for the RWB Blog hop she wondered if I didn't feel intimidated by all the * professional* quilters showing their work in the same blog hop? I admitted that I did feel that way in my first blog hop but it didn't take long for me to realize I was in the company of some of the nicest people ever! How many of us novice quilters can get appreciation for our quilting creations from an actual Quilt Designer like Amanda Murphy or such positive encouragement from an entrepreneurial spirit like Madame Samm anywhere else but in our on-line quilting community?
I don't know about you, but I'm a better quilter, more open to trying new techniques, and inspired to put my work out there for the world to enjoy (Not Judge) due to my associations with all of you. I've even made lifelong friends with other quilters and had my Faith strengthened through the prayers and kind words left in my comments/emails.
