Is quilting really about patience?
Often times my non-quilting friends and relatives have wondered about my "patience" to create a quilt. All though, I have to admit that at times I have been frustrated in the past over a quilt or two, I am not sure if quilting is about having patience. I believe that any thing we do in life, if done with passion and devotion does not require hurrying the process. In which case no matter how long it takes from the beginning to the end of a project, It is all about enjoying the journey and staying in the moment.
This is a king size coverlet made out of two pieces of whole cloth. The top layer is finished with reverse Applique on a whole cloth!
Talk about patience!
King size! really!!!
The stone panels of these arches were hand carved in short pieces and then put together!
In rural India, inspirations are every where!
Could this carved stone window be turned into a quilt by using the clam-shell patches?
I am certain that the artisans who created these were paid to do so, but I would also like to think that they enjoyed creating such beauties with great passion!
What do you think?
