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!

Trouble with Colors and Shapes
This is my newest little creature. His name is Arnold. And I am having a terrible time. One of the ways that I am trying to stretch my creative boundaries is to use color more flamboyantly. So once I decided that this was the next drawing that I wanted to make into a quilt, I chose a border fabric to inspire my color choice. Notice it is RED. So I wanted to use a light color as the background and some other color as the figure. And this is where it stands right now. And I am NOT sure it is working.
Although it may just be that there are no details yet. But there is the problem of my new little guy sort of floating in space.... hmmmm. Need to ponder this one for a while! Barbara
