Functional Art

I ran across this quote today:

“Democratic nations…will therefore cultivate the arts that serve to render life easy in preference to those whose object it is to adorn it.  They will habitually prefer the useful to the beautiful, and they will require that the beautiful should be useful.”  –Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

This quote brought my mind to quilting as quilts are functional art.  And yes, I know I’ve said this before and I will certainly say it again and again…
