Woodlands for the Landscape Quilter
Last week, the Cabot Quilt Guild had a two day 'Woodlands for the Landscape Quilter' workshop with Nancy Bergman. This is a new class for Nancy. Twenty students were challenged to create their own woodland scene by playing with scraps of fabric and exploring the tricks of creating an illusion of visual depth resulting in a small art quilt. The background fabrics were provided as well as a selection of other fabrics to create tree trunks, ground cover and shrubs. As you will see in the samples below, each one was different. It was interesting to see the background fabrics quilters selected.
