I was asked by students for a class on using snippets and after reading Snippet Sensations by Cindy Walter and some experimenting on my own, I designed this little landscape as a class sample.
It is 13” X 17” and made entirely from pre-fused cut up little pieces that cover a foundation fabric.
|quilting of rock & grass|
Using matching thread, each section was quilted separately, matching the stitching design to the area being quilted. Medium size sideways stippling for the sky, wavy lines for the water, all over design on the hills, and up and down lines for the grass.
Lines were drawn with a Sharpie marker for branches and then stitched with black thread over the marker extending the ends into smaller twigs. Little snippets were added for leaves.
All fabric is 100% cotton.
Snippet Landscape was made in 2009 and exhibited in the 2010 Kirkland Lake Mile of Gold Quilters Guild Annual Show.
Have a great day,
