The great purge is on!!!!!!!! This will be my first purge of quilting books which I've been buying as regular as groceries for 6-7 years. I've reached a point where I know what I will and will not pursue. As much as I love pictorial quilts, the likelihood that I will ever feel compelled to create them is slim. When I began this journey I wanted to know how to do it all and I wanted to do it all quite well! I invested in books in a variety of artistic styles. Since then, specifically the last 3 years, I moved toward defining my style as an art quilter. I know that what I do with cloth when I'm at my best as an artist is a direct emotional response/release to living. Abstract marks/stitches/shapes feels more freeing to me than trying to convey in pictorials. Doing Crowbonics: The Scroll was the deciding piece that said to me...let what doesn't fit me, go.
In celebration, I'm hosting a give-a-way!!! This is a great book for starters to dyeing...uncomplicated and a fun approach. And a oh so cute pair of rubber gloves (size M) that have never been used (didn't fit my hands). Release your inner gigabytes and leave me a comment telling me how quilting helps define or impacts your identity or life. Everyone who comments on this post will be entered for the book and gloves and a name will be drawn on Sunday.
Look for a new tab at the top of my blog for the books that I'll be selling sometime soon. I'll also list on Amazon. Thanks for hanging out here at Seamless Skin ;)
