The Quilt Maker

From “The Quilt Maker” by Angela Carter

” In patchwork, a neglected household art neglected, obviously, because my sex excelled at it – well, there you are; that’s the way it’s been, isn’t it? Not that I have anything against fine art, mind; nevertheless it took a hundred years for fine artists to catch up with the kind of brilliant abstraction that only ordinary housewife used to be able to put together in only a year, five years, ten years, without making a song and dance about it.”
