After having been asked how many quilts I've made, who I'm making this one for, or that one for or why, and how many quilts do I think I need....
I came to the following conclusion:
I am a creator, an artist, just as much as a painter is...
Does anyone ask a painter who he is painting for or why he is painting yet another landscape? how many pictures/portraits he has painted? How many canvases or paintings he needs?
Does a painter stop wanting to paint because he has reached some number that symbolizes the end of his need to paint? "okay, that's #100, I'm done now..."
I create because I am driven to create. My medium just happens to be fabric and thread, instead of oil or acrylics on canvas..but I create for the same reason..to express myself, to share myself, to experiment... Even if the quilt doesn't have a purpose, a recipient, a reason. Quilting is my voice.
