I've only been quilting about a year and a half. And I dove right in - didn't take a class, read just a bit online when there was something I needed to know. So needless to say I've made my share of mistakes and done a few things the hard way out of ignorance of an easier way. I had a teacher once who told me, "You will learn more from your wrong answers than your right answers." I've found that to be SO true. You remember the mistakes, and the solutions longer than the answers that you didn't struggle with. So, in that spirit I like to embrace those mistakes as warmly as my successes, even when they require me to rip out stiches or cut the binding (one of my nemesis) yet again.
