So for a break, I went to visit A Garden of Quilts show at Wheaton Arts on Sunday. 170 hand and machine made quilts were on display. Some were done completely by hand, while others were stitched via machine. Fabulous computer guided machines were available for sale... a girl can dream... The work was amazing. What really caught my eye were two quilts, both inspired by the civil war.
Since a picture is worth a 1000 words... The first:
|I apologize for not getting the quilters name - but it is extremely intricate and designed beautifully.|
So how do these quilts relate to the 21st Century - well, look at the skills that were needed to create these works of art.
Critical Thinking, Decision Making, Imagination, Creativity, Measuring just to name a few.
Thank you for putting up with my soapbox, but you did come to visit.
Speaking of visiting, make a trip to Wheaton Arts Village; you'll learn tons about South Jersey and the history behind it.
