For a while I belonged to two quilt rings, the Artful Quilters Ring, and the Quilt Mavericks ring. Quilt Mavericks is a nice group of quilters who mostly make scrappy, comfy quilts (not art quilts). I guess I have been posting too much about art and artists lately and neglecting to post about my "other" side of quilting. (remember I also make "comfy" utilitarian quilts). To my great surprise, they have booted me off of Quilt Mavericks, apparantly for talking about art too much. I NEVER said ANYTHING that wasn't encouraging or friendly, I just talked about art too much.
It would have been nice to have some kind of reminder or request before receiving the "sorry you don't fit with us" message. So, will the artful quilters kick me off if I post something utilitarian?
Why can't we all just get along?
