Creating art quilts is how I can be "plaid" in a "striped" world.

Wine in the Garden 12" x 12" 2012
Because I'm retired and my art quilting is not a career, I can indulge in being a dedicated dilettante (from the Italian dilattare meaning to delight.) According to my dictionary, a dilettante dabbles in a subject without real commitment or knowledge. For me it means I delight in trying new ideas or making new pieces as the mood strikes me. My plate, or I should say my design wall, is always full of assorted, usually disparate, intentions. But I veered away from them all for a day to make this little quilt.... just because. Dabbling = delight!
