More "Quilt Me a Story"
Maria Tortolero's quilt shows her village in Mexico where she grew up and Chicago. I love all the detail that Maria put into her quilt. I love even more that Maria has caught the bug! All she wants to do is quilt! I think this is an amazing first quilt. I hope you agree with me.
I do want to share one sad story. Maria shared her quilt with two quiltmakers who were visiting the musuem and they immediately started telling her everything that she has done wrong. I wanted to cry as she shared this experience with me. My teaching philosophy with beginners is expression first and the skill level with improve. We all need to be kind to each other and ourselves. Happy creating! Karen
