Rules Rules Rules
Sherri Lynn Wood, over at Daintytime, has a very interesting series going on Mondays exploring improv quilting. In her latest, she talked about rules and breaking rules and asked us to post our "rule memoirs". Here I go:
1. Work with what you've got.
This simple rule, posed to me by Fred Granzow, my high school art teacher, has become my mantra. It is incredibly valuable in all aspects of life, not just quilting.
2. Everything must line up perfectly.
This is one to break.
The quilters of Gee's Bend changed my life forever. Hallelujah!
Ummm, I think that's it.
