I’m feeling the urge to do a landscape quilt. There are some fantastic batiks just ripe for such a quilt. I use a machine pieced curve technique that results in a softly rolling landscape. It is where I live. Here is an example called Rolling Hills. I combine batik and cotton printed fabrics to get the right effect and gradation of color.
This one is supposed to hang in my office for calmness – if I ever get around to hanging it!
Another example is Down by the Sea. This quilt is owned by one of my sisters. It has batik, batiked lame, printed cotton, and beads. I loved making it.
Several new batiks are scratching my landscape itch right now. They don’t go in the same quilt but they have my imagination working overtime! What do you think?
