Landscape quilt

I took a class at Asilomar (Pacific Grove, California) in February with Judith Baker-Montano, who is  (to say the least) well known in the crazy quilting world.  The class was called "Crazy Quilted Landscapes."  We class members took in a photo(s) of someplace dear to us, and Judith helped us transform those photos into a crazy quilted landscape.  I wish I could show you the original photo, but it was taken with another camera.    Anyway, this is the quilt I made from a photo of  a small piece of the Sonoma County, California coastline.  I'm very happy with the way it turned out.  Judith is a wonderful teacher (as well as fun); it was a joy to be in her class.  If any of you are ever in California from February through September check out www.emptyspoolsseminars.com.  These are 6-day long classes held in the beautiful setting of Pacific Grove, California.  It is an all-inclusive thing, and is really wonderful.  I highly recommend it.

  5. I would love to do one of these, but I don't sew. I am sooooo tempted. Do you glue it on first?

  6. I sewed down the pieces onto my landscape quilt. You could try it with fusible webbing. That would be an idea. A lot of my details, though, come from my hand-stitching after everything was put together. Does this help?
