Don’t You Have Enough Quilts Already?
As a fairly prolific quilter, I’m asked regularly “Don’t you have enough quilts already!?”. The answer is “yes”, but what has that got to do with it? Quilting is my art. No one would ever ask a painter if they had didn’t already have enough paintings, or a potter if they hadn’t already created enough pots, or a sculptor if they hadn’t already created quite a few pieces. There is something about quilting and the product of the art form, (and I think it is because they’re so very practical unlike most art) that evokes this question from people.
Well folks, this is my art, and probably while I’m alive – God willing – I’ll be creating quilts, quilts, and more quilts! Thankfully my sweet husband is hugely supportive. He suggested years ago that I buy a Bernina since I needed good equipment, and last night, as I was putting the last few stitches on the binding of this quilt, he wanted to know what my next quilt project would be.
I’ve said it before, but quilting is the one craft that I’ve found where I love every aspect along the way (okay, perhaps not the pin basting), and then love love love the product that I get at the end.
I’ve got a lot more quilts in me, can’t wait to get started on the next one!
May your spool be endless,
