Landscape Quilts: Design and Technique

Detail: Bridal Veil Meadows

My art school background enables me to simply explain basic principles of color, texture, scale and design at work in a range of landscape quilts. Presenting a variety of approaches to landscape used by quilters here and abroad, this slide show both informs and teaches several principles of landscape design. Use of value, texture, color and print scale in landscape images is clearly explained and illustrated with slides. During the talk, I point out details and techniques that are particularly effective or that can be adapted to other kinds of images. Examples include antique quilts, folk art quilts, abstracts, appliquéd designs, pictorial piecing and other techniques useful for creating beautiful landscape quilts. This talk has been very well received and praised as highly informative. (slide show with a few quilts).
