Inspiration … Ruth B. McDowell

October 30, 2008 at 8:28 pm 2 comments

Ruth B. McDowell came to our quilt guild the other night. What an amazing talent. She brought about 8 quilts and presented an hour slide show. I have to admit that through it all I was mostly thinking… Man, I’d love to see her fabric stash. I envisioned an art quilt a few years ago. Luckily, I didn’t get very far back then because I’ve learned so much in the meantime and even more from Ruth’s talk. Someday I’ll get back to it. In the meantime, I’ve got this to inspire me, signed and all.

    I think there’s a good number but there’s also a lot of commercial and other cottons… clothing, home decorator. She said, “If you see a fabric and think why on earth would anyone make such a thing, you obviously need a fat quarter of that.” HA! Someone else once told me that ugly fabrics make the most impact (positive) on an art quilt. Go figure.
