I have also learned about your pain.
I have learned that you have Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, chronic pain, and like me... Ankylosis Spondylitis.
I have learned that sometimes the pain is not physical but, emotional.
Yet, here we are... quilting through the pain.
For me, quilting helps take the pain away. Quilting takes my mind to another place where pain is a distant memory. Only when I take a break do I realize, WOW I hurt.
I have seen a lot of posts recently about quilts being "good enough" or being too easy. I hope you will remember from this day forward...
Your quilt is perfect in every single way. Every quilt you make is a true masterpiece. Your quilt is a work of art. You sat through the pain to create something from your heart. Whether it took you 2 hours or 2 years... it was still made by YOU. It was made with love and it is PERFECT. It is a true treasure that everyone around you will love and adore because YOU took the time to make it.
The only quilt police out there is you. So go easy on yourself and be proud of everything you create.
One more thing to remember, you are not quilting through the pain by yourself. We are all in this together!
