Quilt show thoughts
I went to a quilt show today with a friend. It reminded me that when I am looking at the quilts done by others, there are two categories:
1. I think I could do that! (someday)
2. There's no way on EARTH I could ever do that!
Some of the work was really amazing. I am very fascinated by the quilts that look like real people or places. It requires a way of looking at fabric from a different sort of perspective, as an individual entity of color and texture and shading. There was a lot of thread painting and bead embellishment on quilts as well. Just fantastic.
Of course, we also visited the vendors. Shockingly, I did stick to my list, mostly. It's no fun if you can't say "mostly" - you need to get a few of those spur-of-the-moment fabrics that grab your imagination!
