A surprisingly simple quilted scene using Karen’s layered topstitching technique. Gentle rolling hills of green fabric strips combine with distant peaks to create peaceful vistas. Include a lake or a field of wildflowers. The variations are endless!  See how quilting and embellishment can enhance your landscape.  

Finished Size: approx. 9” x 12” without borders (size varies)

Karen says "Since I was a little girl I have always felt the need to create. I consider myself a serious “doodler” – pencil in hand, I just love making lines and patterns. Color had always intimidated me, because I didn’t enjoy the mess of mixing paints and I didn’t have the color confidence to select the right colors. Fabric was a welcome relief to my dilemma– colors came already “pre-mixed” – no color charts, no mess, no fuss AND I  could work with them anywhere in the house. I do love painting on fabric now, which I happily cut up and use in my fabric art."
