Fiber Arts Exhibit: Something for every taste

FL Sister id tagHigh on the list of “Most Ridiculous Remarks Ever Uttered” was the one from a woman of questionable taste (I realize that I’m not very objective here) who told me, “I can’t imagine ever owning a quilt myself. My home is not really the style for quilts.”

I am seldom speechless but I truly didn’t know where to begin at that point.

Quilts cover a wider range of styles and tastes than ever before. The “something for every style” point was elegantly made in the artwork displayed at the Community Quilt and Fiber Arts Exhibit in Blue Ridge, Georgia where we traveled recently.

Now, tell me, what kind of house would be a house where a quilt doesn’t fit?
