Janet Houts Creates
Janet took the same Challenge and came up flowers. " My piece is called Wild Flowers". "This was the most unusual challenge we have done yet and the hardest ( especially getting started). None of the pieces seemed to relate to each other, so I had to over look that by choosing a geometric shape and cutting most of them into a wedge, in random sizes. The pieces are wildly colorful, so I chose a smooth, graduated background to show off the pieces. Once I placed a few fan shapes on the back ground, they turned into flowers and the project was easy to complete. "
Janet's web site is www.mercurystudios.net. Janet has moved and is living in Idaho, and our Quilt Circle is near Yosemite National Park in Calif. Janet is our long distance yoyo! I love the wild flower theme, but it could also be a beautiful blooming cactus.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
