Check out the video of quilts from the How Does Your Garden Grow Exhibition. Today’s installment shows you my favourites up close with some time to truly appreciate them.
As I mentioned earlier in the week, I went along to this exhibition with my Mum and discovered that as well as enjoying the designs and skill in the quilt there are two important questions for any quilt show:
1) Which quilt do you like best?
2) Which quilt do you want to take home?
Turns out for both Mum and I the answer to the two questions was different – so how would you answer? Are your two answers different? Why?
The other thing I wanted to mention was that there was 4 categories in the competition – primary school age, high school age, 18-24 years, and 25-25 years. Interestingly while you can probably pick the primary school ones it’s much harder to tell what age the others’ are which is probably a good thing, and amazes me how young some people start. Ah well, I’ll just persevere on the principle that practice gets us closer to perfection.
