Random or planned
« on: November 25, 2013, 09:10:25 PM »
I always love looking at quilts and the patterns they have. Are these random based on spontaneous bursts of creativity or do quilt-makers plan their designs before collating them?

Quilt-makers often rely on bursts of creativity, but they do plan out the design of the quilt. As the novel Grendel says, human beings are pattern-makers. These dear quilt-makers rely on patterns that are planned and that are executed properly during quilting time. I remember the stories I read about the Dreamweavers. These are women from the Cordillera Regions of the Philippines in Asia who weaved fabric with designs that come to them in dreams. What a lovely activity -- from dreaming to pattern-making.
