Giving it a second try
I recently read Elizabeth Gilbert's new book called 'The Big Magic". Her book addresses the fears and pressures of creativity. She had so many wonderful pieces of advice that inspired me to try creating small quilt based on quilt artist Merle Axelrad. We were able to visit Merle Axelrad in her studio Sacramento when we were up in the area after the Sano Reunion. I found a wonderful picture that I wanted to try to make into a quilt. I then set about cutting up small pieces of fabric and placing them just so that you could actually see the shadings etc.
