This landscape quilt (43 3/4" x 28") is based on a photograph by Mike Taylor, Photographer in Maine. This is a raw-edge applique landscape made with cotton fabrics including batiks. I painted the shadows with Shiva Artist's Painstiks. The lantern light is Angelina fibers and Textiva film. The batting is black Hobbs 80/20. Quilted on my Viking Sapphire 835. I enjoy making realistic art quilts, especially with lights and luminescence. This quilt has been sold.
This the very first pattern I've published and is a variation on a block called "Deck of Cards" the difference being is that traditionally that block was constructed like a log cabin block.
This pattern is different and uses a unique way of constructing it that I think is a lot simpler than that so there is no partial seams, Y seams or any kind of paper piecing involved. This quilt is made up of 2 slightly different blocks that can be arranged in many different ways so the quilt pictured is just one way to arrange them
pattern is available on craftsy as a downloadable pattern
An original design 63” w x 61” h. Based on a photo I took on the way to the Crags Trail near Divide, CO. I added the lanterns as my challenge to make the light effects. Background & appliqués are 100% cotton fabrics including Batiks. The water and lanterns have a layer of glitter organza on top. Raw edge appliquéd. Longarm machine quilted with cotton, polyester, and monopoly, threads. Hobbs wool batting. This quilt is available for sale at: http://quiltpatternsmore.com/quilts-for-sale.html
Quilts that contain both applique and patchwork are my favorites so when I saw Esther Aliu's online BOM called Diamond Hill, I had to make it.
My version is slightly modified from the original design in colors inspired by a Kleenex box.
