I'd give this piece more stars if I could! It's really beautiful! The detail is exquisite.

Beautiful piece of work! The lighting on the trees in the forest beyond the lake, and the colors of the sunset reflecting in the water, are just incredible. Thanks so much!

WOW. What a masterpiece! There's such detailing, yet I can stare at it for hours, peering downstream (upstream?) trying to catch a glimpse of what lies beyond. I love the lighting on the tree trunks and the reflection of light on the water. Thank you so much!
A Vacation in Every Room
One day in December 2009, I happened across the long-running tv show called Sewing With Nancy. Her guest was Natalie Sewell, and they were displaying several of Natalie's quilted woodland scenes. I was floored. In the space of two seconds, she had taken me from my living room to my favorite place--the forest.
At that time I had never quilted anything but a table runner, and I hadn't gotten out the sewing machine or picked up a sketchbook in years, but I immediately went out and bought Natalie's and Nancy's book and some printed fabrics in green, brown, gray and black. Then I rescued my ancient Coats & Clark thread stash from a basement cupboard. Within a few weeks, I'd made my first landscape quilt. I haven't stopped since.
I've updated and expanded my thread collection now, and learned all about such things as fusibles, Angelina fibers, and mitered corners. My landscape designs are mostly born in my imagination but occasionally inspired by a photograph, and they always undergo some changes throughout the creation process. Each quilt begins with raw-edge or statin-stitch applique layered on a batik or landscape-print background, which I then embellish with embroidery, paint, markers, and various fibers. Almost all stitching (except for border and binding seams) is free-motion. I square the quilt before bordering it, then steam-block and square it again before attaching self-made binding and a hanging sleeve.
It's my hope that every time you view one of my landscape quilts on your wall or interior door, you'll travel to the world you see there and leave your troubles behind!
