Must see quilting documentary!

I just stumbled across this documentary.  This link is for a 15 minute clip to the original documentary.  However, if you are a quilter this is a must see.  I absolutely love it and will probably order the full length DVD.

Quilts in Women's Lives

Check it out and let me know what you think!

"Of the seven women seen during the course of Quilts in Women's Lives, some are indeed painters using scraps of material for their medium, and they take traditional painterly attitudes toward their work. But over and above painting, quiltmaking develops into a metaphor of life itself. Quilts in Women's Lives is visual anthropology. It examines by implication quiltmaking as a system of communication, record-keeping and structuring principle. The film, like the quilts, embodies the reassuring care, the forgiving attention to detail and the fascination of detail and emerging pattern that animates the best of life itself."
