Jen's work really brings home the concept in quilting what my husband used to express in triathlons. As he passed people riding expensive custom and high-tec bikes on hills and on the flats on his standard "off the line" bike" he would comment "It isn't what's under your feet, it's what's under the hood," meaning you are only as good as the training and expertise you have in your soul and physical body. I have to say, Jen has what it takes in her sould and fingers.
I am participating in Nina-Marie's "Off the Wall Fridays," so if you want to see other blogs dealing with fiber and quilting, check out her blog to find more fiberlicious links. .
