A couple of weeks ago, I taught a landscape class at Sugarloaf, Carrabasset Valley, Maine. There were four people in the class and we had a great day designing and talking about landscapes. For this beginner class, I provide a pattern for the students to follow. It helps them learn the concepts of designing a landscape. Later in the day we talk about how to take their own pictures and use them for a personalized landscape.
Laurel decided she wanted lots of flowers in her landscape.
Michele chose to have stone wall and lupine in the foreground.
Jano played with a variety of borders to give her piece a different look.
Joyce experimented with a range of blues and greens to get the look she wanted.
None of these pieces have been quilted yet. We spent most of the day designing. They all did a great job and I look forward to seeing the finished pieces.
