|In the beginning|
When I took it out, I started adding things such as extra plants, especially in the foreground; details in the water and things that might look like a forest.
I read and looked at a lot of photos in my Quilting Arts magazines. I also invested in a few e-books on Landscape Quilting through Interweave. I got all kinds of ideas.
|A brand new tree!|
|Water and shore|
|The sky - my favourite part!|
Here's the final product. Not bad for a little experiment two years in the making.
What I learned:
- It's important to add enough space around the edges so that I don't end up cutting things off when I square the piece up or lose things behind the binding.
- I have learned so much from making this little piece. I was not impressed with it when I left it in August 2013. It's amazing what some bits of fabric and thread can do.
- Don't rush things - when I'm ready, it will happen.
