Kim E-M Quilts

Kim Eichler-Messmer

the quilt that was supposed to be first but wasn't (or was it?)

Which came first?

or #1?
Number 1 the first came first if an idea counts as existence. But number 1 the second came first if physical form counts as existence.
Number 1 the first was the vision I had in my brain. Number 1 the second was how the vision manifested itself in the real world (after my tricky brain reconsidered her original idea and those pesky hands got in the way). Number 1 the first is the quilt that my brain wouldn't forget and wouldn't forget and wouldn't forget. So I had to make it eight long months after attempt #1. Sometimes you just have to make something. again.
