|Quilter's Tile - Flower, I Felt|

All week long I've had second thoughts about continuing my quilted tiles. It seems even after all these years, my mom's comments still hit me. As I was showing my niece some of the tiles I had done, my mom asked "Why are you taking the time to make all of these? What are they, potholders?"
Can you really justify yourself to your mother without feelings of guilt?
Why am I making these? It did make me stop and think.
I see them as little pieces of art. And why do we make art? Today my answer is ...........To release our creativity by having fun, showing our spirit, and exploring new ideas.
Sorry, mom, potholders or not, there will be another quilted tile.
(Details about making "Flower, I Felt" can be seen on my blog.)
The BIG question is "Why Do We Make Art?" (Or should we spend our time doing other things?)
What are your thoughts?
