Yesterday, I read in Morna’s blog about picking up a piece she had THOUGHT was finished, had put up for sale, and returned to, because it WASN’T finished.
I have many pieces that I don’t like. This doesn’t stop me from trying to sell them, because, lo and behold, the pieces I don’t personally like often go the most quickly.
But lately, partly because of my disinclination to be in my basement studio, and partly as a result of the provocative discussions in Slow Cloth circles, I am enjoying the process of picking up a piece and really adding to it, reworking it… If we were talking painting, the first go ’round of design and quilting would be the equivalent of priming the canvas.
I have added many new rooves, and am turning some of the black areas into roads. The quilt sprang out of a road trip a little later in the year than this, last year… Eventually, this quilt will be ‘binding worthy’.
