    Since I'm over fifty, and have made the switch to art quilts, I really don't have any preconceived notions about how young or old the art quilters are. Thank goodness that the quilters and the fabric manufacturers have ventured away from the calico's of the 1980's (all that was available when I started quilting).
    If only the pretty calico's of the 80's were available, I don't believe that young quilters would be as excited to start quilting.

    And if all that we had available was Joannes to shop at for fabric, no one would be quilting, and we would instead be waiting in line.

    Back to the film "Stitches," the featured artisans noted that many of the winners had flowers and butterflies. It was the Viewers Choice that the quilt of the African Child was awarded.

    ...now I'll get off my soap box! :)

    A quilt, by any other name is still a quilt!
    You can keep the wine(I've never met a wine that I liked) and I'll take all of the quilts be they traditional or art. Love them all!
