Style vs. Personality–Open Line Friday

Bird, FMQ, Tutorial, LKennedyGood Morning, Quilters!

Last week, in my post, Inspired! I wrote about my early days quilting traditional feathers, stippling and grids. A few people protested when I said it lacked personality…

Classic Feathers

It is definitely a style:  Traditional.

But it doesn’t have personality–

Or is it more correct to say   “It doesn’t reflect my personality”?

What is the difference between style and personality?  Can one have a quilting style without personality?

Perhaps it is just a matter of adding a few personal touches to traditional quilting motifs–like tucking a bird in among the feathers…or adding spirals around the grid?

Does quilting personality matter to YOU?

We’d LOVE to hear!

Hint tomorrow on Fine Art Saturday.

May YOUR stitches be filled with JOY and PERSONALITY!
