Is Enough, Ever Enough?

“Fog”, finished at last, whew!

If you feel I’ve been neglecting my blog postings this last year, you would be right.
I’ve been working on five art quilts & several commissions for about a year. This is the very last one, I’m just now framing it & will post it in my Etsy shop https://BarbaraHarms.com

  1. Spending so much time working on several pieces of fiber art, may seem excessive. But, I’ve resigned myself to the fact “that things take as long as they take.
  2. The important thing is to get what you’re working on to the point where you are happy with the results. If you think what you have made is good, you can feel proud of your work. I know that I am really making my art for me, I need to be able to look at it and feel good. If I don’t like a piece I made, it drives me to disration. I think eveen some of the art quilters at the top of the field feel the same way. But the thing is, generally your gut feeling is right, believe it.

2- In all honesty, I am a bit obsessive ( I realize that my saying “a bit” will have my friends laughing out loud. ( “A bit? She says a bit???” ha, ha, ha).

As a lot of art quilters will attest to, it’s hard to recognize when it’s time to stop. There’s always that “just one more thing.”

My statis after about a year? I’ve completed most of the art quilts, a few have already sold. And the commissioned works have been completed & delivered. The others are close to completion. (But… you know, if I reworked a few tiny changes, they could be even better.)

The art quilt at the top of this post is the most recently finished. (That’s if I can reign myself in and say enough is enough).

Here is the last quilt, it is completed. I’m going to frame this one and will post it.

Been out of touch, too much going on, my head is spinning. I’ve been working on 4 quilts, one of which is for a friend. That quilt is first in line. I’m having fun working on it. The other 3 can wait, they’re for my Etsy shop.They’ll get there.
