People who make quilts, be they traditional, art quilts, or anything else, understand that it is not always about the QUILT. The process, the colorplay, the fabrics, the textures, and many other things are part of making this creative process so enduring. Not that the finished product isn’t wonderful, but for this quilter, the process is so much more fun.
Sometimes my view on quilting, and the antics that go with it, takes an irreverent turn, and I write about that too! Nothing in my life includes visions of creating perfect quilts, idyllic sewing rooms, or even following directions.
But with every project I work on, I find myself coming up with questions. Big ones, trivial ones, intriguing, and mundane. I am tackling some here, and if you have questions too, I hope you will share! Perhaps the answers, if discovered, will enlighten us, or even inspire us to try something new. Come along for the adventure!
