I played hooky one day last month to attend QuiltCon West, a quilt show hosted by The Modern Quilt Guild. I've always had a thing for quilts, but I gained an even greater appreciation for them — a deep love, really — after seeing them hanging on walls like the works of art that they truly are.
The exhibit was a visual feast. I was floored by the incredible, and sometimes unexpected, use of color.
I was mesmerized by the clever use of negative space.
And I felt heartsick for the gorgeous patterns and texture.
I almost didn't get out of the studio that day — I had so much to do — but I'm so glad I did. I came back to work energized, refreshed and wholly inspired.
