The Fabric Arts

I've heard it said that quilting is an art. Hmmm, let's discuss this for a moment.

If we really think about it, quilting is taking perfectly fine, generally good looking pieces of fabric, cutting this into little bits and then, for god's sake, sewing them back together.

I'll let you think on it.

  1. If you are just sewing squares together, it is not really much of an art. But, if you are making intricate patterns and jumbling small amounts of fabric to make it work out, and you are sewing more than squares, I think you could be a quilt artist.

    It is not something I aspire to, but I appreciate a well made quilt.
