I just watched a short film on the quilt makers of Cairo> I am so inspired how wonderful. and they applique on canvas. they are spectacular. It makes you want to quilt more but oh where oh where do we find the time to do all the quilts in our heads?

then you look at all the quilts on here and you get so inspired all the artists out there who just think they are just making a quilt,everyone of these quilts is a piece of art in the making from the simple scrap quilt to the most elaborate applique, you are making art.You did it with your imagination and love of fabric and color.It maybe simple but it is your own creativity that makes it. I have never seen a realy ugly quilt.now I will get off my soapbox and go do some piecing. You are all artists. Dottie

was that the video here on mqp? i watched that several times. she did such an excellent job with explaining it. wish i could see them! especially i want to examine the canvas they use. she said it isn't like our canvas here in the states, but lighter and thinner, but listening to the sound of the needle as he pulls it thru the layers of fabric, and looking at the size of his shears...wow. but they are indisputedly beautiful traditional art works.

i really enjoyed reading your two blogs here. i have felt the same way ever since i joined mqp and saw the incredible works of art poseing as "quilts" here on these pages.

and you, as far as i am concerned, can climb up on your soap box any time you like. you state your case so well. and make such enjoyable reads.
