THE CRAFT OF ART QUILTS: Debates about the “art” verses the “craft” of quilts attempt to address the aesthetics and processes of quiltmaking. In this presentation, I discuss the qualities inherent in what we do as quilters and common hallmarks shared by all quilts. Quilts from many eras as well as my own work serve to illustrate how quilts are inherently both “art” and “craft”. I am happy to take questions from the audience. (1 hour)
