This is the tidy, trimmed version:a small section of the back of what I have been stitching for a week. Am I under arrest?
I remember some years ago I was at Quilting By the Lake, which is ostensibly art-quilt oriented. That year, Nancy Crow, Miriam Nathan Roberts, and many other luminaries of the ART quilt world were teaching there and their work was displayed for all to admire. Imagine my surprise when so many of these ART QUILTERS pawed and turned over the pieces as though they were at a pipe and drape show and exclaimed in shock and horror at more than one famous quilter's piece, "OH, look at that BACK. How AWFUL!" Humpf.
And here is the front of a different piece - blocks sewn together from the other night. It is boring: what was I thinking? Well, I do know what I was thinking, but I can't tell you.I just know it seemed like a good idea at the time.
