Wednesday Quotes

“Whether we call it collecting, scavenging, accumulating, scrounging, gathering, or junking, it’s all about the urge to surround ourselves with our stuff, our loot, our stash, our hoard, our mother lode of treasures, and to reap the inspiration that these sometimes inexplicably irresistible objects provide.”

Lynne Perrella – from her book ART MAKING, COLLECTIONS & OBSESSIONS

Don’t we feel that way about our stash?  Our treasures?  Fabrics that we have had for years, that are too precious to cut; scraps that bring back memories of quilts made, clothes sewn, friends gathered around.  New fabrics we cannot resist buying because of the color, texture, design.

What do you think?  Send me a note and let me know.  In the meantime, keep quilting.
