"Artist" or "Engineer"

Yup - gonna love these books (see previous post). The ABCs of Longarm Quilting starts off with a definition of two different types of quilters: artists and engineers. So which are you?

Artists: pattern directions are merely suggestions; there are no such things as "perfect points"; and unscripted and spontaneous methods provide inspirations.

Engineers: accuracy is everything; measuring and pre-planning lead to perfection; and knowing exactly how the machine works is important.


I'll not be judgemental toward anyone else, but I spent a lot of today putting together some unscripted and spontaneous gifty things for some special people. :)

Back to "real work" tomorrow. Have a great week!
