Are Quilts Art?

Welcome to Open Line Friday!  Anyone can ask a question–feel free to do so in the “Comment” Section below, and everyone answers…

No question is too small…we will try to help…

I loved the responses from my question last week:  “Who taught you to sew?”.   Everyone was so thoughtful in their responses…so nostalgic…great reading.  Thank you!

Kona Color CardToday, I will start the ball rolling with a question (but please feel free to add your question, too!)

Do YOU consider your quilts Art?   Put another way…do YOU consider yourself an artist?

Does it matter?

I think most of us have a hard time thinking of our quilts and projects as “art”–but the danger here is in not taking ourselves seriously enough, and not availing ourselves to established “Art Principles” when we work…

What do YOU think?

I’d love to hear!

PS…As you know, I use a lot of Kona cotton for my tutorials and projects.  I recently purchased this color card HERE.  It is so much easier than picking colors from a computer screen-most are very unreliable.  Another tip….Kona solids are bargained priced at Hancocks of Paducah–just $5.47/yard!
