Landscape Quilting with 'Challenging' Fabrics

3 Hour Workshop sample
 You may not know it, but I sell landscape fabrics - I have over 100 bolts!  (The link to my online store is on the toolbar at the top, just under my Material Girl collage.)

 I decided to invest the profits from my first book's royalties into opening an online fabric shop dedicated to help landscape quilters find the fabrics they (we!) need.  The thing is, we are completely dependent on manufactures to make the right fabrics and many times they don't quite get it right.  Soooo, in this blog I'm going to show you how I use the not quite "right' fabrics.

Interwoven - Done!

 I finally finished the quilting - let me tell you it was a rush job!  After being gone the last month or so, I had to finish the quilt in less than 2 weeks and for me that was fast!

Fall! My Favorite Season for Quilting

Detail, a Touch of Fall

 Fall in here in Wisconsin is everyone's favorite season. Why? Well it isn't just because of Packer football, or because 99% of the biting flies and mosquitoes are dead, or because those days of 95 degrees and 70% humidity are gone. Nor is it just because fresh apples are plentiful and our homes smell like apple pies and homemade apple cider.  Fall is beloved because of the colors - such glorious colors as the maple trees turn bright red and the aspen and birch turn a warm golden yellow.
