What is your personal style? I think that mine is confused sometimes. I like modern and clean yet I love vintage. It's okay. I try to blend them all. I love vintage furniture but the reality of where I live right now doesn't lend itself to that look. I can admire though.
The beauty of quilting or any other craft is that you can try out a different look each time and not feel invested in it. I can grab a piece of fabric and distress it, paint it or do whatever I want with it. Liberating! Lately, I've let my kids have a piece so that they can draw monsters on it. Then i sew around it and leave an opening for stuffing. Instant softie and they made it themselves.
