Somewhere, in this conglomeration, I know there’s an art quilt. I repeated a quote to a couple of friends the other day:
“Creativity is about making mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. “
Those of you who were at the retreat will recognize my luminosity piece and that I have cut it up. This was a mistake I’m not keeping, but I still feel that it has some virtue and am trying to salvage some part of it. After looking at the piece for over a week, I finally cut it up last night. That first slice was hard to do. Now, it’s easy. Some might say that the photographs of the flower are enough; it’s beautiful, leave it alone. But, I consider it inspiration and want to honor it in fabric. It will come.
