“Curiouser and curiouser!” cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English).
—Alice in Wonderland, Chapter 2, The Pool of Tears
I found art quilting after a short lived stint as a fine art major and a longer stint as an elementary school teacher. My first quilt was truly unlovely and I soon learned that following patterns was not where I found my bliss.
I found that creative bliss painting on fabric and layering and stitching the paintings to provide texture and structure.
I am a fearless quilter, sometimes I even cut them up... paintings as well as finished quilts.
