Small Works: a loooooong running series

If you really, really, want to find your voice as an artist – you simply need to make art.
Make lots of it.
Make a series.

And if I followed my own advice….. I have made lots of art but it has been interspersed with motherhood – five fabulous kids worth of motherhood and all the time that takes. So it’s really fun when I organize my files and find that I’ve got a series of one subject, by accident. So here you go…

There are a couple more, but they’re ugly. I tell my students all the time – if you don’t make some ugly stuff you’ll never get to the good stuff. That doesn’t mean I’m required to show it to you. Looks like I’m overdue to make another ammonite……

    The hardest part of FMQ for me is moving away from my quilting motifs and doing different things. My goal for next year is to quilt to the project rather than to what is easy for.

  2. I love ammonites – if we are lucky we can find them on a beach near us in North Yorkshire. These look great. My son has just made me laugh. he was looking over my shoulder to see what I was doing and thought I was writing something about the BOM – not block of the month
