“Sewing the Land” workshop with Sue Benner – Day 4/5

I have completed 3 small landscapes studies which I started during the 5 day workshop with Sue Benner.  I finished these pieces by adding free motion quilting and a binding using the satin stitch.

5″ x 8.5″

6″ x 9″

For the sunset landscape, I added more grasses in the water reflection using thread sketching.  My fall trees (looked more like a forest fire before quilting) are now quilted with lots of thread sketching in the trees so hopefully they now look like trees.  The last piece is a view from a window.  For inspiration I borrowed a photo from Carol who sat at our table during the workshop.  The photo is a view from a bathroom window at a resort in the Caribbean where Carol’s daughter got married.

I really enjoyed making the window scene.  It inspired me to make a collage quilt with views from different windows from my travels.  I have taken lots of windows and door photos while traveling.  Since I plan to add the Caribbean window to the collage, I did not finish the edges of this mini-quilt.  Small projects are fun to make – quick and easy – a nice break from working on larger projects.  Keep having fun sewing and quilting.
