Description

Quilts, wooden toys, pillow cases, and other handmade objects are items we treasure or hate. They are the record of the human urge to create. Creation is not the sole domain of poets and artists but an integral part of all peoples; creation is life We make things. The results are accomplishments but the end product is not always the goal. The process or the act of making is the core of the creative force. That process can encompass frustration or pleasure, but the desire to make continues.
