Yesterday's Landscape Quilt Workshop

Wow, what a talented group we had yesterday for our landscape workshop!  My head is already full of ideas about what we need to do next time!  Eight brave students turned out to spend 6 hours designing everything from Monet's garden to the Sierras, summery green hills, an ocean, vineyards, and a wintery back yard!  I had a blast.  Everyone jumped right in, and we had fabric EVERYWHERE!

Here are some in progress snapshots.  My phone didn't save as many pics as I thought 'cause the memory was filling up, but hopefully folks will send me shots of their finished pieces as they stitch them up over the coming weeks!  I am very proud of everyone!

Suzi was very enthusiastic!

Pinned and ready-to-stitch.  What a great job for a first-time student! I love the touch of sunlight in the distance.

Vineyards pin-basted.  Gorgeous colors.
