WINDOM — What if …?
Those two simple words figure prominently into Anna Johannsen’s life, whether it be in her job as a teacher or her creative endeavors as an artist. They are the words she lives by — along with a few others.
“My mantra is ‘what if?’” explained Anna. “What if I made that into a quilt? That’s how I get my inspiration. My other thing is: How do I know if it will work unless I try it? That’s what I always say to my students. Another one is: Too much is not enough. That’s the Victorian theory — if your house is gaudy, it’s not gaudy enough.”
WORTHINGTON — The number of quilts Dorothy Cummings has fashioned in her lifetime likely stretches into the multiple hundreds. She’s stitched up quilts for family, friends, acquaintances and many strangers.
When one is done, she’s eager to move on to the next project, so she doesn’t get too attached to her creations.
Quilts are featured artworks in local gallery
WORTHINGTON — Quilts are fashioned from fabric and thread, but there is also a human, creative component to their design and construction.
The unique artistry of the region’s quilters will be on display beginning this weekend for the third biennial quilt show at the Nobles County Art Center in Worthington.
