Perfectionism is not required to create a beautiful quilt. If you find yourself stressing over color selections, or pattern options, take a break. Come back to it in a few hours or the next day and see how it looks. If you still can't decide what to do next, check in with a few quilter friends for their opinions.

​Marking your quilt

Instead of using a marking pencil with a quilt stencil, try using a foam paintbrush. Dip it into loose chalk, and dab it over the stencil. It's really quick!.
