Sewing the Land workshop – day 2/3

Water background

Ready for shading and quilting

Mary and I brought landscape photos to the class to use for inspiration in our quilted landscapes.  I decided to use a photo of cattails for my first piece.  First I created a background on my quilt sandwich.  I added lots of green leaves and then added some purple and orange leaves for fun.  I found a fun stripped fabric for the stems of the cattails. I like the fabrics that I used in this quilt.  I need to add some shading to the sides of the stems and also to the cattails.  Quilting will be the next step. Keep having fun sewing and quilting.
