This is a great place to educate yourself to an art form that is intricate, yet completely underappreciated. Is it because women would "gossip" etc. over quilting bees? The installation I witnessed last summer was nothing short of incredible; recreating parts of a topographic map...More

I am not a quilter, but I am a photographer. I love art, any kind of art. Quilts are practical art. They are often called "comforters" (although they are not precisely the same things) because they provide comfort and warmth, but they are also art....More
