I am a fiber artist and as I look around at what others are doing, blogging about or selling, I realize I have a few tricks up my sleeve to share. This is the beginning! There are some really beautiful quilts out there, but they are not art- 'just' quilts made from a pattern hundreds of thousands of other people have made. Star quilts are a perfect example. A star quilt is a star quilt is a star quilt, with 45° angels and 8 points. Yet every now and again you get one with a center applique or an elaborate background then there is an ah ha! The picture I am posting is an ordinary star, a quilters quilt not a fiber artist quilt.
