More Rolling Landscape

I've posted before about the simple Rolling Landscape quilt that quickly developed into a Series of 6 landscapes. Subsequently, I was asked by my quilt guild to teach a class on my free-hand cutting and curve piecing techniques. Here's a picture again of my first landscape, a sunset.


And, here is the first one I get to quilt for one of my students. Wow, what a sunset! And, the purple mountains! And the rolling greens that flow past the waters, down to desert sands at the bottom. Beautiful!

That black piece represents the city lights as seen from a distance. Can you see the tiny night lights?


While I usually quilt these pieces with tiny textures that don't really represent anything recognizable, the setting sun on this piece just cried out for radiating sunrays. Gives the sky so much depth, don't you think?
