Speech, Speech, Speech....
I was asked by a friend and fellow quilter..."What are we going to do with all these projects????" The tone in her voice had a little bit of concern...judgement for herself...and, I could have heard a little bit of OMG. So, here is it...I have given up that part of my quilter conversation. I don't care how many projects I have or how many quilts I make!!! I LOVE the process of taking fabric and turning it into something wonderful. It doesn't matter to me that I don't have wall space. What I do know is that I can rotate quilts on the wall for the seasons or just because. I do know that when I find out someone in my life might need a quilt hug...I have one to give them. A new baby on the way...lets see which one would be prefect. The result of this change in thinking...I don't have many quilts lying around...I have released them out into the world like children...and there is real joy in knowing that I had fun making that particular quilt or using that fabric line. So there...that is my speech, lol. I hope you are not over thinking the quilt joy in your life!
Today's slide show is the student work in progress from the Contemporary Folk Art Workshop. It is amazing the variety of creation. Some students came with works already in progress. Others, like myself came with a blank slate. I encourage you to step outside a comfort zone and sign up for an in depth workshop...it is amazing what happens on day 2 or 3! Enjoy!
