I wasn’t sure how to start this post off so I figured that’s how I’d actually start it. So I did.
With that said.
Though some might not know it (I know I didn’t at first), quilting is considered an art form as well as a craft and my lady of “Long Meadow Farms” has recently become a member of the “Wooden Horse Arts Guild” of Northeastern Vermont. Now, I don’t know all the ins and outs of being a member and all that since I am neither an artist nor a quilter but one of the things that each member is asked to do is submit a “palette” that reflects their art/craft to the “Palettes of Vermont Project” of the Vermont Arts Council. To wit:
Palettes of Vermont is a fun, inclusive project designed to unite people and communities through the arts. Since January 2006 we have distributed more than 7,000 Vermont maple palettes and 31,000 die-cut paper palettes to participants from every part of the state, every walk of life, and all ages and abilities. The palettes are being created using many media – paint, pastels, paper, ink, fabric, etc., or they can be incorporated into other creative activities such as theater, film, music, poetry, prose, dance and/or multimedia. From Memorial Day through October 2006, the palettes will be exhibited in more than 70 Vermont communites.
