C’est finis

The fat lady has sung: The edges have been bound and the two landscapes are as complete as I can make them.
(Please ignore the daisy pins holding the hanging to the rod 😦 I forgot they were there when I took the photos)
The upper pic is totally fabric: machine appliqued.

The pic with the black (fabric) “frame” was worked using wool and some silk tops.

The settler’s hut/cottage is of machine appliqued fabrics.

Both were based on the same small watercolour postcard: they were my first attempts at a ‘true’ landscape,and yet to me,both are so different.

At the present,I’m working on a quiltie: a six inch finished square……… side consists of a square embellished onto a piece of cotton scrim,and further embellishments added.

The reverse side will feature a batik style fabric embellished with a hot glue effect(courtesy of a challenge a while back on the yahoo Textile challenge group)
I’m trying to work outside the traditional quilting square!
Watch this space.
