No scope for imagination

Any comments? 

I recently listened to an audio version of the classic novel "Anne of Green Gables", and was sure I had heard the heroine comment, "there's no scope for imagination in patchwork."  So I found a paper copy, and sure enough, here's the exact quote:

"...there's no scope for imagination in patchwork. It's just one little seam after another and you never seem to be getting anywhere."

Too bad she couldn't have seen a quilt show like our recent Voices in Cloth!

If you run across a similarly, um, LIMITED view of quilting, could you post the quote as a comment on this post?  I'm sure quilters will be amused.  -- Rachel Holmen
