Landscape Workshop


Saturday I attended a follow-up workshop with Bonnie Lindsey of The Quilt Zoo who had done a presentation and trunk show at one of our past guild meetings.  She had adviced to do the first project small to get a better feel for the technique as well as closer to a finish.


Some of the folks went a bit larger!  Sandi brought the most fabulous hand dyed fabrics to use in her design.  Yes, as you can see this becomes a bit of a 'spread out' project.


Edna and Ron  were working from photos from their backyard.  As you can see, we had a lovely room to work in and those big tables were fabulous to spread out  work on.


Martha, Kathy, and Sharon working away.  Kathy has her  camera - we found it was good to photo layouts should some pieces walk away.  My little one down there was not progressing as well as everyone elses.


This is Martha's little piece - her farm even with the little tractor on the field - it's harvest time.  She was the only one who got everything done.  The others got all their layouts set and half way temporarily 'fused'.


Mine - well it came home with bits and pieces laid on the board.  This is the second workshop I have tried Landscaping - not a success either time.  I will play with this one today and probably tomorrow.

My Juki goes off for service tomorrow - new place.  I hope this time it gets the correct 'fix'.  The back-up  machine will take it's place while it's gone.  It's not as heavy a workhorse, but it will be useful for some of the projects that are waiting.  I have a lot of handwork to catch up on, too.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  1. Hope the Juki comes home with renewed life.Those landscapes, a lot of fiddly cutting and placing. and the tractor, amazing. I am sure I would be struggling to do anything like those landscapes.

  2. You have the sky and trees exactly right. Keep the middle or mid-ground in the medium range, and get dark, dark , dark as you approach the bottom edge. I love it. Stepping out of the box is hard, but this one is working.

  9. I think your landscape is wonderful. I love picture quilts and think that the Quilters are extremely tallented who do them. I don't think it is anything I will every achieve. Hope the Juki gets fixed Hugs, Susie xx
