An artist, Sherry, in our Fyber Cafe group, was concerned with the idea of working in a series. She has gotten a new book by Elizabeth Barton on the subject. She wanted to know if any one wanted to work through the exercises with her. If you had asked me last week, if I worked in a series I would have said "Heck NO!" Not me, I have never done that purposefully, have I? But hindsight gives me a different perspective, I have indeed worked in many series, over my long years of quilting. Hindsight did not just slap me in the face, it wacked me upside my head.
P.S. I also have series in Vintage Fabric, Reproduction 1920-30's, Silk Flowers & Fairies, Stained Glass, Hand Dyed fabrics, Fabric Painted Portraits, Floral Applique, Oriental Fabrics & Shashiko, Gelli Prints, Scrap Quilts, Silk Ribbon & Crazy Quilts, Redwork Embroidery, 40 years of exploring this ever changing world of textile arts. I hope you enjoyed this journey I have taken over the years to create the artist that I am today. Beginning with a class in hand piecing with Roberta Horton when I was in High school in the early 70's to Playing with technology like Photoshop in the new millennium. Thanks for checking out my blog!
