Create Beautiful Landscape Quilts
Landscape quilting breaks many quilting rules and is quite liberating as a result. It’s okay to cut inaccurately, in fact, it’s often recommended. Glue sticks are used instead of pins, and the pattern is not a pattern at all, just a photo! Natalie Sewell taught Nancy Zieman her spontaneous technique many years ago, and they share their simple techniques with you on Beginning Landscape Quilting Part Three on Sewing With Nancy.
After making hundreds of landscape quilts, Natalie has learned to fine-tune the process. In this series Nancy and Natalie focus on specific elements within scenes. In the quilt, Prairie, you’ll see distant and close-up coneflowers. Designing a scene such as this might seem daunting, yet you’ll soon learn how you too can become a landscape quilter.
In Beginning Landscape Quilting Part Three, watch how to create the flowers in this prairie scene.
In Beginning Landscape Quilting Part Three, you will also learn how to create mountains. Nancy and Natalie used two inspirational photos to create the quilt titled Rocky Mountain Summer.
Hand dyed fabrics, permanent fabric markers, and oil pastels are the needed elements to create the majestic mountain in fabric. See how to select fabrics, cut mountain shapes, and shade with permanent markers/oil pastels.
In the Beginning Landscape Quilting book, quilting and finishing tips for machine basting, layering, stippling, binding, and more are explained with step-by-step photos.
