Art Quilt Exploration is a new online course being offered by Joggles. It is a 6 week course & each week will see us making a new mini art quilt.
Week 1 is a landscape quilt.
Here is the beginnings of my landscape. I felt that the dark blue/green hill in the middle may have been too large, although my plan was to embroider the trees I could see forming in the dye.
Once I started I decided to include some purple toward the background. This also helped to reduce the bulk of that middle hill.
The sky had some swirling lines machined stitched in a silver metallic thread. The front section has french knots in 3 shades of purple & small seed beads are scattered on the lighter green hill.
