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!

Can You See What I See
Sometimes a piece of hand dyed fabric just yells "don't cut me up". This was one of those pieces so I stared at it until I found different flowers within the colors. I started by inking the most dominate ones and then outlined them with thick, black thread. Using Tsukineko ink to give shadows, help define them along with thread painting. Machine quilting and painting are two of my favorite things to do.
The class sample is now finished and I will be teaching it in a couple of weeks. Hope the students enjoy this process as much as I do. Jan
