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!

Too many ideas - how to choose?
Drawings using watercolor blobs as inspiration
Finding an idea for my next quilt has rarely been my problem. I always have a list of ideas to try or new techniques to experiment with - the problem is narrowing down my list and PICKING just one. And the drawings that I am creating from this new book are a perfect example. This first picture is more of the watercolor technique. I like them all but some more than others.... I think what draws me to certain ones is that they have a personality to them.
Drawings using Picasso technique and scribbles
The second picture is a bunch of drawings from the Picasso technique and also some from another new technique where you just start with a scribble and then see what it becomes. Truthfully a lot of those end up in the wastebasket because they don't turn into anything but scribbles! But I really like some of them. You can tell the Picasso ones from the scribbles because the Picasso ones have different sized eyes. Barbara
