Just the other day I thought I had finished documenting my work. I noted I had made 150 quilts in 12 years. I have spent bits of the past few days rounding up images of baby quilts. Today in the middle of acupuncture I recalled a small portfolio I made of my very early work. It contained 4″x6″ photos and I was sure it was still somewhere in my studio. I came home, found it and ay-yi-yi discovered about 20 more quilts. So I scanned those images and documented those and now at last count I have 184 . This includes the four kid quilts for which I am seeking images, and two of my own. One of these was donated to the San Jose Quilt & Textile Museum auction about 7-8 years ago. I remember the title and the squabble that ensued when the woman who purchased it for a song marked it up ten fold and listed for sale on her website! That was my introduction to free enterprise. The other piece I believe was cut up but I can’t find anything anywhere on it.
I am not going to lose sleep over it though. I have well-documented the work that counts, through spreadsheets, photos, a hard-copy portfolio and my website and now the super-duper documentation binder.
Dare I say I am finished with this task?!
