- I have never met Rayna Gillman. However, I know when I do, I will like her.
- I am not receiving any money for the sale of her book nor am I working for her.
- I am not trying to recreate a Rayna Gillman quilt nor do I think my work would be mistaken for one of her pieces of art. I think the quilts that I am creating look like my work. Hopefully Rayna will weigh in on this.
- Rayna knew nothing about my fabric challenge until I announced it. I offered this on my own because I thought it would be fun to see what others would do. I happen to like playing with and supporting other artists. People were free to join in (and I'm thankful that they did) or not. I felt it was my right to create my own rules.
And as you can see, I've started another indigo piece. The panel is a Dutch wax print cloth (Hollandaise) from West Africa which I purchased from one of my favorite vendors at International Quilt Festival in Houston when I lived there. It is approx. 12 by 16.5 inches so the size is presenting me with a new challenge. I am so excited that I am having trouble sleeping and I work on these quilts in my dreams! I certainly hope you are having fun too.
