The clip The Rules of The Quilt from How to Make an American Quilt (1995)
I don't know what I'm gonna do about that yellow patch.
It throws the whole damn balance off.
Constance, what are you doing to me?
As I understood it, the theme is supposed to be "Where Love Resides."
For me, love resides in Chickie's garden.
You could have put some pink and blue flowers in Chickie's garden.
Chickie's roses were yellow.
Constance, there are a lot of colors we all like to use...
...but we have to respect Anna's opinion.
Why are we being so strict? It's a love quilt, for God's sake.
It's for Finn, Mama. It's not for competition.
I don't care if it's for the First Lady or a whore in the street.
We will follow the rules of design.
Sometimes you have to break the rules to keep the work alive.
Une couleur laide, ?a n'existe pas.
Don't give me that French crap.
I live with someone who's been breaking the rules for 30 years.
And I don't come here to have it rubbed in my face.
I show up here...
...and I sew.
You know, Constance...
... Em has been a part of our group...
...longer than you have, and we're in a rather...
...uncomfortable situation here.
I really don't care.
