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
