|Baby quilt #1, no fancy back on this one.|
On another note, I've come to learn to appreciate a hand sewn binding and will be doing that little job by hand from now on. Look at me growing as a quilter and learning new techniques. But, no, I've been reading on the internet how modern quilters are all dumbing down their techniques - so how could I be learning new techniques if I'm so dumb? This just doesn't compute. Maybe modern quilters aren't dumbing down the quilting movement. Maybe we do what we enjoy and try new things and either like them or don't. Flying geese, bad. Hand binding, good. I like bright colors and simple lines which doesn't make me a bad quilter, it makes me someone who enjoys bright colors and simple lines. Look, no one has to like every quilt that is out there but if you don't like it, you don't have to belittle it and state that the quilter is inferior. Differences can be appreciated without interference by the quilt police. Here endeth the lecture.
