After all these years I have to say that making fabric landscapes is still one of my most favorite artistic adventures. My early pieces were completely hand appliqued and quilted. I still love the hand appliqued pieces, probably because of the smooth finished edges but the speed that comes with machine quilting wins over hand quilting for me now a days.
Teaching miniature landscapes was a favorite because it was where participants would take one of my patterns and totally make it their own.
Here is a quick mini land and waterscapes show, beginning with my very first. Then the video of my most recent painted sky fabric from my previous blog post.
You certainly have an affinity for skies. I enjoy all the fabric “frames” you’ve chosen for your views.
Thank you. Living close to a large quilt shop has had its benefits over the years.
My favorite is the night and day. I’m attracted to the graceful transition between evening and morning.
Gorgeous fabrics, and you have such a great eye for landscapes.
Thank you so much. I do love making them, I’m glad it shows.
You said “…the graceful transition…” I like that. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
