comfort zone

So I really want to get good at

wonky feathers, but when it comes to quilting them, I feel so much comfort going back to quilting patterns that are easy for me. This quilt I did some flowers, leaves and swirls. I feel good about those, eventhough at first they were hard to do. I know that if I keep practicing the feathers, I will one day get good at them, but it is so hard to try something I don't feel good about doing. I think I will bribe myself to do one comfort quilting pattern for every difficult pattern I try. I also need to watch the DVD again to see what I'm doing wrong with those feathers. I want to see improvement quickly! I am not a patient person :( Grump.

Comfort zones, it sure is hard to leave them!
