“developing an eye for quilts”…

Why Quilts Matter is a nine part video series on the history and meaning of quilts.  Bill Volckening, a guest writer on the WQM blog, presents some interesting thoughts on developing “an eye for quilts”.  Certainly, his suggestion that developing that “eye” requires looking at thousands of quilts, is something I will pursue.  He suggests that eBay is a good starting location for finding thousands of quilts to examine.  Got a few free minutes…. go to eBay and practice developing your “quilt eye”.  Meanwhile, I’m finally organizing my Loft Studio today, shopping for furnishings for it on Saturday, and will be back messing around with fabric, paints,  sketch pads and all sorts of media soon!
