Another Landscape from my class


This student went toward the realistic side and used fabrics with designs that depict the clouds, trees, flowers, water and desert. The creek even has a pebbled bank on each side.


So, quilting it was just a little different than the usual textures. I just had to follow the clouds in the sky fabric. I echoed each colored area in the sky to get the density of quilting that I wanted.


And, I put a forest of Ponderosa Pines in the dark green area. The fabric beneath that already had trees, so I just outlined them.

Of course, the creek had to get a swirly water treatment. But, other than that – texture, texture, texture!


And, just for a little seasonal fun, here's a picture of a “modified” deer caution sign I took in Bridgeport, California, this past Fall.


The end of all exploring will be to arrive where we started and to see it for the first time.”
