I have sadly neglected my blog lately,, a month of computer woes and drama have taken so much time & energy making it hard to do much. I got a new computer an hope to be up and running nest week. I have found a wonderful tip on thread painting I’m going to share. You know how if it;’s very heavily done it can stretch the fabric all funny? I notice it more working with silk so much. This is an absolute solution to that. I have a new spring art quilt with a whole lotta thread painting , really heavy and it worked so well. I’ll share. For now I’ll repost a older interview.

Barbara Harms-Up Close and Personal I've been a painter most of my life. I was introduced to quilting after moving to Oregon and instantly fell in love it. It was new and exciting, I jumped in with both feet. As enjoyable as I found quilting, I began to miss the creative freedom painting affords. Then, I discovered fiber art quilting, I was finally home. My Process & Approach For me, it's the process of creating that holds the strongest attraction. I love starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges, then I follow where it leads. My style is fairly loose and instinctual. The choices and decisions that come up as I work on a piece, are made based on my gut feelings. This can result in quite a few changes in direction. The outcome can come as a surprise. I love that element of surprise. Sometimes everything just comes together & I think that this is one of my better ones. I can’t wait to show someone. I feel like a six year old, running home from school, a drawing in hand, excited to show Mom. At those times I'm smiling like the Cheshire cat. View more posts
