Janice Jones selected block #27 for her Sister Artists quilt – women preparing maize. The fabrics Janice selected are a beautiful complement to the colors and textures of the embroidered block. Embellishments of appliquéd shapes, beads, prairie points and tassels add to the beauty of the piece. Of her involvement in Sister Artists, Janice says, “Being involved in this project has been so rewarding. Being a Sister Artist to the girls feels very special and I hope that we can somehow continue to be connected. It feels good to be reaching out and doing something positive.”

Janice lives in Massachusetts and has done a series of African quilts. of her work she says, “The application of fibers and embellishments that are either handmade or “repurposed” adds that extra layer of interest which makes a big impact. A lot of thought goes into the use of special embellishments that enhance various design elements of the piece, and this is my favorite process in the finishing stage of my artwork. I love to use handmade beads, buttons, repurposed objects, fiber, stitching, stamps and various quilting techniques to add interest and texture.” To learn more about Janice and her work, visit her website, http://www.janicemjones.com.
