The next stages of my landscape or should I say, cat-scape…

Did I mention I plan to enter this miniature quilt into a challenge? It’s due next week. Quilting Arts Magazine is running the “Greatest Pet Peeve” Reader Challenge”. I thought it would be fun, since I live in a “cat house” and there are more than a few feline antics to choose from. I debated […]

Taking the long, windy path…

There is a path in the town where I live in Beit Shemesh, Israel that runs quite a long way. This time of year it is very pretty with lots of blooming, particularly almond blossoms. I was inspired while strolling there and decided to work something up with that path in mind. This is still […]

Landscape art quilt, final basis is done

I have finally reached a point where the basis for this landscape art quilt is done. The design is my interpretation of the photo. I think you can see the two banks connected by a bridge. That’s what I was going for. The images are appliqued. The overall look will still change a lot once […]

Landscape art quilt, continued some more

Whew. This has been a real challenge. I worked intensively on the right side of the river and this is what I have come up with. The method I used is called collage. I allowed a play between dark and light greens to give the feel of a hillside. I’d be glad to hear what […]
