The Uncommon Quilter

I have a clematis that flowers in the fall. This picture is what it looked like a few weeks ago, as the flowers were forming.

The flowers have now opened, and they smell great!

In 2003, when I was making a small quilt each week, I made this quilt about the same clematis. This quilt is not one of my better ones, but it's a lesson that being persistent in making art on a regular basis, leads to more creative thinking and risk taking (art wise).

Over the seven years of making a quilt a week, I made three clematis quilts. You can see directions about how to make the clematis quilt shown above, on page 101 of my book The Uncommon Quilter.
