quiltmonkey Posted March 29, 2007 Report Share Posted March 29, 2007 I've been reading these posts over the past week (since discussion started) and have to say something. You guys know me by now, I'm a drama queen...I can't keep my flap shut! LOL! Anyway, from a person like myself, in regards to those of you who quilt without the SR and may have what you call "imperfect" designs and stitches....well, frankly myself, I really appreciate and find real true beauty and art in those slight imperfections, and I find the quilts that are quilted this way very charming and personal and human...AND BEAUTIFUL! You all are true artisists and use your thread like paint. So what if every stitch is not exactly the same. So what! Big deal if you ask me. The stitches are pretty darn close to perfect, and I don't go around with a measuring stick and magnifying glass. The thread you use on cloth is like paint on a canvas. Has anyone ever examined a painting to make sure each brush stroke was exactly the same? No. You all keep doing what you do best. I think folks like Bonnie and Teresa do absolutely beautiful work. Don't let the uneducated customers think that just because you don't have SR you don't create a beautiful product. I love quilting, especially the designs that come from the heart, through the fingers and on to the cloth. Quilting stitches that are not perfect are those stitches that come from your heart and straight into my heart. Quilts made like this really touch me in the sweetest way. It's hard to describe, but I'm sure you know what I mean. I love it. OK nuff said. I'll shut up now. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
