What is a modern quilt? As in, what makes it modern?
A lot of us have a quilting bucket list–techniques we want to try, quilts we’d like to make, and quilters we’d like to learn from. Tops on my list is taking a class from Gwen Marston—I’ve been in awe of her work for years. It appears I’m not alone, as Gwen was tapped to be the keynote speaker at QuiltCon West this week, where she’ll share her views on Liberated Quiltmaking: It’s About Making It YOUR Way.
Ever since I heard it on the radio this morning, I’ve had “I’m going to Graceland… Graceland… Memphis, Tennessee…” running through my head.
Except I’m not going to Graceland, I’m headed to Pasadena, California today – Tuesday. I tried changing the lyrics to suit my plans but alas, it doesn’t have the same flow – which might be why Paul Simon went to Graceland instead of California.
Making beautiful quilts. Collaborating on a project. Doing something for a good cause. Friends. Common bonds. Having fun.
