Liberated Quiltmaking II

It's midnight and my husband (Hubs), son and FIL are at the ballgame, top of the 13th inning....I am ensconced on my couch, happily perusing my Liberated Quiltmaking II book by Gwen Marston that was delivered today...

I love this book.   She writes "I think your chances for doing something innovative, something beyond what you think  your capabilities are, improve when you plunge ahead.  Just start making something.  Make something small. Write your own rules, and don't try to be "artsy" (That won't help.)  I'm not kidding about this.  Life is short.  Do your own work, have a good time, and be nice to everybody...including yourself." (Gwen Marston, Liberated Quiltmaking II., p. 10).
Great advice for beginner's like me!
