Landscape Mini quilt

nature quilts

My latest landscape quilt is finished. This quilt was created for a class on art quilts so my friends can practice selecting fabrics, composing a scene, painting with thread, etc., always keeping in mind that art quilts can be as true to nature or as abstract as one desires.

This one measures 15 1/2" x 17", a good size project for an all day class. I would like to add an animal, but will need to let it hang on my designing wall for a few more days before I figure out what animal, its size, and where it will go.


Crystallized elements bring light to the flowers on the forest floor. As you can see from this detail, I used raw applique technique, first gluing the pieces of fabric to a pieced background. Once the sandwich was assembled, I worked with my favorite threads by Superior Threads. I used 6 different variegated colors from the Rainbows line.

  3. Very beautiful! My mother made wonderful quilts, but never seemed to pass the skill on to me :) I am artistic though-I was a professional dancer when I was younger, so I at least inherited that from her! New follower from MBC, I look forward to your future posts!
