Thanks everyone! It was labor intensive but worth it for the results. I'm pretty sure another is in my future. :)
This is stunning!
Congratulations, Cathy! The confetti technique sounds intense, but so worth it for these beautiful results!
I just want to mention that I won the First Place ribbon at the AQS show in Albuquerque last month with this quilt! I was soooo excited! My experiment worked!
Thank you again Marie and Debra!
Love landscape quilts. Thats on my bucket list. Very pretty quilt
how beautiful love this!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks all! Mary, I have a book coming out in Nov. about using strips to piece landscapes. (It is called Lovely Landscape Quilts and is available on amazon). *Shameless plug*I blogged the process as I made this quilt - including the 'confetti' tree. The confetti refers to using thousands of tiny tiny snippets and create stuff. In this case rogue, I layered tulle on Aqua Melt stabilzer, sprinkled snippets on it, layered more tulle on top and then another layer of Aqua Melt. Then I stitched through all the layers using tiny loop da loos, soaked the whole mess in hot water to dissolve the stabilizer and cut up foliage shapes out of the tulle/confetti. My blog is cathygeier.blogspot.com in case anyone is interested.Thanks again for all the compliments! The confetti tree was WORK but worth it in the end I think. :)
This is simply wonderful. I have only been quilting since November of 2013, and I know that I have to learn how to do the machine quilting. I must learn this landscape piecing technique also, because I really want to get into this style of art quilts. Thanks for the inspiration.
