Process Patchwork : Taking the Pledge

I’ve read something about patchwork blogs lately

It seems many blogs are written

About quilts made and finished

Having no problems along the way

At least none the maker is going to share…

All completed

In a rarefied cloud of

Perfectionist Patchwork

Reality is rarely like that

At least my quilt experience isn’t

The idea behind

Process Patchwork

Is to share the whole

Rather edgy


I have to own up

I am not a Perfect Patch worker

Those precisely pieced quilts

Winning competitions and shows

Looking more like printed fabric

With so much fine, fine detail

They are beyond me

The quilts worked and re worked

On sewing machines are beyond me too

I am an artisan of modest means

I do aspire to perfection

However rarely, if ever attain it!

I have no need to work deliberate errors

As the Amish are said to do

Sadly there are enough errors

In my quilts to leave no one in doubt

I am not close to emulating

The Creator, in any way!!!

So my Patchwork notes carry

The ramblings of Process Patchwork

Therefore I am taking the pledge

I, Denise Stanford, pledge to talk more about my processes, even when I can’t quite put them in the in words or be sure I’m being totally clear. I’m going to put my thinking and my gut feelings out there.
