Please indulge me…I’ve been quietly quilting and thinking….
Why do we quilt? Why do we cut apart large pieces of fabric into small pieces only to sew them back together again?!
Why don’t we just go to a department store and buy a blanket?
Why do we spend hundreds of dollars making a quilt, when we could buy one for less?
Is the desire to be creative innate?
Do we do it because we enjoy the process or the product?
After writing about the comfort of quilting yesterday, I realized that I often enjoy the process more than, or at least as much as the product.
But then…if we enjoy the process more than the product, is it necessary to finish our quilts? What if we love making quilt tops, but hate quilting them? Perhaps the process is the important part…it’s challenging and comforting. Is that enough?
Or is that an excuse to skip the hard part of finishing?
Maybe this is a month of Open Line Fridays?
Quilt Process or Product? I think there’s room for both!
What do YOU think about when YOU quilt?
We’d LOVE to hear!
