I sometimes find myself searching for the right phrase when someone asks me what I "do." Mention the word "quilt," and people may tune out or, more often, respond with a story of the wonderful bed quilts their grandmothers used to make; it takes a bit of explaining to describe to them how my work is different. So . . . what do you think we should call ourselves and the art we create?
