Minding Your Ps & Qs

Have you noticed the proliferation of labels that can apply to those caught up with the world of patchwork, quilting and textile art? For example:
  • stitcher
  • sewer (unfortunate-looking when written down)
  • patchworker
  • quilter
  • quiltmaker
  • art quilter
  • fibre artist
  • textile artist
  • etc

For myself, I prefer the term "quiltmaker" - it's simple, descriptive and functional. Kind of how I like my quilts.
