I finished my landscape quilt! I submitted it to my guilds annual challenge. "escape with me" was the theme. I loved planning this quilt and look forward to making many more. I used Mistyfuse for all of the machine applique. It worked perfectly and it didn't gum up my needle while I was quilting. I bought the Goddess Sheet with my last purchase and I love it, it's always flat and I can see through it - perfect protection for someone who has been known to scorch things!
The pool fabric is from Vicki Welsh 's etsy shop. She makes gorgeous hand dyed fabric. I bought the grass fabric on my first trip to Houston, I don't remember the name of the vendor....
I loved finding the right fabrics for this piece, I had many in my stash and found little gems along the way. I made this tree separately using water soluble stabilizer and added it last. I plan to do more of this in the next one.
I quilted it the old fashioned way (sitting at my machine) and I used my older Bernina 1130.
I added a little water feature to the garden...that is the fun of making this series is being able to design your perfect oasis!
I sketched this plan a few years ago, it's a thrill to see it done!
