GLORIOUS LANDSCAPES—OUR BEAUTIFUL WORLD IN QUILTS
Landscape quilts are one of the most popular quilting genres. Personally, I love landscape quilts. In fact, landscape genre was my area of expertise and what I was best known for in the 1980s and 1990s. Creating landscape quilts was the initial impetus for me learning about color and color illusions. This presentation is a journey into nature, showing all kinds of quilts and fabric art by quilters throughout the world using a variety of techniques. (Note: inspirational slides showing beautiful landscape and nature quilts)
