Landscape Class – Sunset!

Wow! Now this is a sunset. This customer came to class with a fat quarter bundle of solids – all in shades of red. I'll admit it, we talked her into a few prints to liven it up a little.

This piece is only 24 x 30 inches. So, the quilting is really small. So much texture!

I just love the fabric she chose for the border – talk about kicking it up a notch!

A little steam and it will lie flat as a pancake. Anytime a piece is quilted super dense, there will be a bit of distortion. But, the application of steam should tame it right down.

I know it is a monochromatic piece, but I used six colors of Glide thread on it. Really.

You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and
smarter than you think.
