Permission to Play, SIR!

(I always picture myself saying that to a big, burly, army office with a glare on his face, and garlic on his breath!)  Anyways, play is how we quilters get places.  Yes, we can buy a pattern, follow the fabric choices, and the cutting instructions, and do things exactly as the designer recommends - right up to "quilt as desired", which leaves most of us at a complete loss.

Do You Know Where Your Needles Are?
