    My DH says I am not the least bit creative because every time I sew, quilt, bake, garden, paint, write, etc. I do my own thing instead of following a set pattern, or rule, or recipe, or guide of some type. He says creative means doing EXACTLY what the plan says and not changing it one tiny bit. I say if I want it the way someone else does I will do their way, if I want it my way I will do mine.

    What are your thoughts on being CREATIVE?

    That's the weirdest definition of creative I've ever heard. It seems to me that doing your own thing is MORE creative than following a pattern, plan, etc.

    this is the exact opposite of creative.

    creative people develop/design original ideas and therefore rules/plans aren't even a consideration yet - they are developed along with the creative idea.

    this is why people design an original quilt and then make it before they actually prepare and sell a pattern for the mass public to use.

    I say your DH has it completely back wards. His way is not creative infact it restricts all creativity. You can tell him I said that. :-).

    I believe being creative is being able to adapt something from its original form to make something different. Just keep creating your own designs. keep up the good work

    I think you are more creative when you create the pattern as well as the quilt. Without your creativity it wouldn’t even exist this way.
