The Source for Contemporary Art Quilts, Exhibitions & Appraisals


John Lefelhocz comments : "The traditional quilt pattern 'Robbing Peter to Pay Paul' visually borrows from itself. Borrowing from one's self, such as using free time to work, or vice versa, can definitely fray you at the ends. It's a thin gray line, knowing when to seek out what is necessary and what is not."
