While doing a photo shoot of a couple of my quilts at a touristy spot recently…
Passerby: What a gorgeous quilt!
Me, very politely: Thank you. You are very kind.
Passerby: Did you do it by machine or by hand.
Me, very politely: By machine.
Passerby looked totally unimpressed. Passerby walked off.
I didn’t think much of the exchange, but my husband felt sorry for me. He thought after all the time invested on the quilts, they were seemingly brushed off nonchalantly… just because I didn’t make them by hand.
Upon further conversing about the matter, we concluded that perhaps sometimes people don’t quite know what to ask when they see a quilt. So, my question to you is — besides “By hand, or by machine?”, what other things might you ask the quilter when you see a quilt?
Thanks for stopping by, Dear Friends. I hope you have had a great day.
p.s. Just so you know, it will be a while before I get caught up with comments/emails. The days are quite blurry for me these days, as I am trying to work down my workload.
