"Buttonholes," Design and Image by Wendi Gratz
I highly recommend popping over to Shiny Happy World to read the story of how Wendi Gratz is reclaiming her happiness in quilting. She used to make quilts for shows and galleries, until the pressure of those venues became just too draining.
But after a long hiatus, she's making quilts that please her, and that's made a big difference. As she says:
"These quilts will never appear in any gallery. They’ll never win a prize in a show. But they make people smile and they keep people warm and they’re really fun to make. I’m not stressing about points or matching seams – I’m playing with color and shape and cuddly monsters and cute puppies. And I love it!"
