Here's the description:
This lecture on modern quilting describes my journey as well as giving the lay of the modern-quilting land. I cover what I see as some key aesthetics of modern quilts, I ponder the appropriateness of the term "modern" as it applies to quilts, and generally get nerdy on a number of topics that relate---in my brain, anyway--to modern quilting. Among them: wabi sabi, simultaneity, linen clocks, and Bewitched.
Many thanks to Running With Scissors for inviting me to lecture. Also, to the wonderful audience! Please excuse the soft background noise, it's the building's ventilation system. Also, I'm sorry that I appear in outline most of the time, the priority was on the attendees being able to see me and see the slides; this didn't always read well on the camera.
A note to parents: there is one minor swear word in here, right after I talk about elephants. You'll know that it's coming. :)
While in the original keynote presentation, the credits for all photographs were visible, that is not always the case in the video. Thus, to do my due diligence to copyright, allowing anyone who sees the video to follow any of the examples to their originators, you can check out these flickr galleries, which contain the source images:

I don't know if it is just finally getting this edited and up, or the fact that it is finally Friday, or the fact that I'm off on a mini-break to see Elle get married (!!!) but I'm very cheerful today! Yay!
