Jan and Barbara are TWO art quilters living in the middle of a very traditional Ozark area. Some folks think we are TOO wild but we have a lot of fun. We decided we needed a place to PLAY and EXPERIMENT and just share ideas. Come see what we are doing lately - and join the conversation!

Alice Has Something to Say!
4" x 6" scan of Alice
The cooler weather has me all energized and ready to go! I just returned from a wonderful week of hiking and kayaking in Southern Illinois and today got to work on finishing my newest quilt. Actually I started it before we left - and truth be told, it was hard to leave the quilt unfinished. So I got right back to work when we got home.

This is another one of my "scribble" drawings and I really enjoyed the design and watching her come to life. AND I got to practice my machine quilting technique. I can really tell that I just need a few hundred more hours to become more smooth in my hand motions..... uh huh! But very very slowly it is getting less stressful and more fun. Barbara
