Quilting Mountains

Detail, Mountain Seasons
 I'm working on a big quilt this week and hopefully I'll find some time to blog my in progress steps. In the meantime though, the subject of quilting mountains came up on my facebook page so I thought I'd share the same photos with you here.   This is the way I quilt mountains in my landscapes.  

Clicking on each picture will bring up a bigger image so you can see the quilting more easily.

Strip Applique Project

Dreaming of Summer

 Our Wisconsin winter has come early this year. RATS!  It has been a long gray week so my inner child wanted to make something colorful and fun. Plus, I'm getting another class together. The result is this little project with maybe a too pretentious name?  Sometimes I have the hardest time naming quilts! (Suggestions welcome!)

Second 3 Hour Workshop Project/Small Tutorial

What are you going to do with that crayon?

 Ellie cat has been helping me finish up a second project for my 3 Hour Class/Workshop.  (I like to give my students at least 2 choices of kits in my classes.) This time I'll show you how I draw saplings in the background AND how I remove the ones I don't like.

3 Hour Class Workshop Project/ Small tutorial

3 Hour Workshop Project

I've been working on a project  I'm submitting to the Wisconsin Quilt Expo next fall (2015) for one of their "Hands On" workshops.   This is a class I regularly teach at guild meetings, but since fabrics change so much every year or so I have to make the same sort of quilt again.

In this blog, I'll show you some of the steps I took making it.
