Little Layered Landscape Quilt


On a very rainy Saturday this past weekend I joined 70 other members of the Virginia Consortium of Quilters in Toano, Virginia for our quarterly meeting and workshops. The workshop I took was on Little Layered Landscapes taught by Martha Berry of Two Rivers Quilting in Williamsburg, VA. She based the class on Karen Eckmeier’s book: Accidental Landscapes: Surprisingly Simple Quilted Scenes. Only straight stitching was required, so my trusty Featherweight did the job. When I’ve done similar pieces I’ve fused the fabric with Wonder Under onto a base piece of material.  For Martha’s class, we took strips of fabric, cut one long side in a curve, turned under a scant 1/4″ and then stitched to the next strip.  The wonky border was done in the same manner.  It was simple and quick, much  more so than I expected! The little trees were added after all the strips were stitched.  Give it a try sometime!
