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!

Ida Mae and Erma Jean
This is the photo of a journal page that I made in 2010. The two Ghosty Girls on the left were blobs of white paint that were just sort of annoying until they turned into figures. I liked them so much that I made them into a quilt.
When they turned into fabric they were no longer Ghosty Girls - and were a lot more colorful. The quilt is part of the Residents of Farkleberry Road series.
Meet Ida Mae.........and Erma Jean
And here is the finished quilt - the circles are purple on one side and turquoise on the other and can flip around - just for fun! This particular quilt was almost finished for about 5 month but sat on my design wall..... forever...... until I finally figured out that it needed the circles. barbara
