I’ll be teaching a one-day class on techniques for making landscape quilts at Studio Stitch in Greensboro (NC) on Friday, March 20, so I thought I’d show some more of my samples. We’ll be making “tiny landscapes” so everybody can try several techniques.
Somebody asked me what I do with these little quilts, which are postcard size. First, I use them to practice art quilt techniques. Then I send them to friends who need a get well card or other pick-me-up. I do put them in an envelope rather than sending them as postcards so that they arrive in good shape!
I made this after reading Happy Villages by Karen Eckmeier
This wonky house was inspired by a class I took with Laura Wasilowski several years ago; I used both hand and machine stitching
I have no idea why this rose is floating in a pond, but it gave me the opportunity to use little beads as dew on the rose
And this one gave me a chance to use one of my little antelope charms and some fabric markers; the binding is satin cord
This dragonfly has sparkly wings with Angelina Fibers as well as a rhinestone
This pine tree has green flannel for and lots of free motion quilting for texture
Finally, I couldn’t help making a card with this cow, who has been in my stash for some time!
Please join us for this fun class if you live near enough!
