Time for another look at some of the great work featured in the forums at Craftster. Note: Although they’re the pick of this week, they may have appeared before this week.
To paraphrase* an infamous American Supreme Court decision, “I can’t define art quilts, but I know them when I see them.” When I saw Seamlessgem’s post on craftster, I knew immediately her project was at least as much art as it was quilt.
She made this for her man for his birthday and included both her and her son’s hand prints in the quilting. It’s a ancient and powerful image, the hand print, and a wonderfully personal inclusion in this wonderful piece.
*This is what is called “taraphrasing” around here, since I’m wont to misquote. Ahem.
Tara Fields a.k.a. "TheMistressT" is a scumbler and plastrix by day and a craft dabbler by night. Her mottoes include “any excuse for a costume” and “there’s no such thing as too much carpincho.”
