Workshop Round up

I like to give a shout out to the groups that have been so good to invite me to teach/talk to them recently.
Here is a round up of the latest.

Stylized Landscapes IV

Deborah O'Hare @Quilt Routes

For the final piece in this series I wanted to have a bit of fun. I decided to have a go at making a larger version of this piece which began life as a workshop sample.

Deborah O'Hare @Quilt Routes

I like playing with strips.

I like lots of close straight line stitching.

Stylized Landcapes III

Deborah O'Hare @Quilt Routes

Number III in this series is slightly different form the first two in that I did have a particular scene in mind as I put it together.

Deborah O'Hare @Quilt Routes

It is based on the view from my house across the bay but the a bit of artistic license involved.

Deborah O'Hare @Quilt Routes

The omittance of any buildings is a bit of a nod to my day dreaming as I look out of my kitchen window. I know that I am extremely fortunate to enjoy the views that I have but I often wish I could see how this bit of coast looked before man began to infringe upon it.

Deborah O'Hare @Quilt Routes

Are there any views that effect you in that way?

Stylized Landscape l

landscape quilting Qult Routes

This is the first of four long landscapes that I want to share.
Those who follow me in Instagram and Facebook (plug! plug! :D) will have already seen them but here is the first with a bit more detail.

I just played with the fabric with no real plan in mind, apart from a general colour theme.

I generally used scraps from other projects...

...and bits and pieces I have been saving...plus some experimentation with the stitching.

I also played around different edge finishes.
