I’m sure other quilters have noticed that they are known, not by their names, but by their most popular works. Unfortunately, I shall forever be “The Pig Lady.” Several years ago a group project to make Victorian evening purses turned into an obsession for me and I made LOTS of purses. What to do with them? Silk evening bags didn’t fit my lifestyle. Since, to my eye, they were in the shape of a pig’s ear, I created my most popular quilt, “You Can’t Make a Silk Purse From a Sow’s Ear. Says Who?,” just to have a place to hang them. And the rest is history.
