Every member of my staff has their own unique talents and artistic gifts. Today one of my artists, Mary Beth, brought a beautiful quilt that she hand stitched from pieces of fabric we designed for Benartex. The patterns come from our Kansas Song collection. Quilting is a wonderful art - dear to so many families as the craft is often passed down through generations. Mary Beth used the same pattern that she learned from her grandmother years ago. Beautiful works of art are created in the unique hand of each quilter and embody wonderful stories throughout our history. Our family has old quilts passed down from both my grandmother and Al’s grandmother. They are heart-warming heirlooms as they always remind us of them. For all of these reasons, I love incorporating quilting elements and themes into my paintings. Please share your own quilts, quilting stories or other crafts with us at Winget Art, you can post a comment below or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to hear from you!
