Not that I want to age myself here, but I’ve been quilting for about 18 years. The last few years I have gotten pretty serious about it and I now have close to 60 quilt tops completed. A friend of mine is the coordinator of evergreen artists’ market, a fair with local artisans held in prince Albert in November. She asked me if I’d like to have a table in the fair and for some reason I said yes! Its becoming painfully clear that if I don’t get my act together, I’m going to have only 3 quilts to sell. My problem is that I have never been particularly confident in my abilities. I realised several years ago that in fact, I’m a perfectionist. I’m not the control freak type who won’t let anyone else do the laundry cause they won’t do it right. I’m the type who won’t finish what I start because it isn’t turning out the way I anticipated. It’s funny, because USUALLY, if I persevere, I am very happy with the results. My problem here is that I’m asking other people to pay me for my efforts. What if it isn’t good enough? What if people think I’m charging too much? What if someone tells me its crap? What if I don’t sell anything? What if I don’t have enough variety? I could go on and on. I have to give my head a shake and get to work. If others think it’s good enough to sell, then I should too! Wish me luck! Here I goooooooooo!
