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!

Chicken is Back!
Back of Fiona showing quilting
Fiona Featherly 17" x 19"
You will note in my last blog entry that I completely gave up on this darn chicken quilt. It was just plain ugly. And then I took a nap - and when I woke up I had one final idea to try. The chicken obviously needed a cardigan sweater to warm her little body up. So I found a CrazyWild piece of fabric with the same colors, fused it over the top of the finished quilt, and Voila! She looked SO much better. So I added some trim to the new sweater and some buttons and now I like the quilt. Sometimes the way these quilts unfold amazes me. Her name is Fiona Featherly..... but you can call her Fiona. Barbara
