Great for beginners and experinced quilters
The quick little landscape quilts featured in this book don't look quick but Joyce breaks down the process into simple, easy to understand steps. She does a great job of explaining each step such as finding inspiration, choosing fabric, adding embellishments and finishing techniques. Most of little landscapes in the book were designed and fused onto fast2fuse, a stiff interfacing, stitched and embellished and then matted and framed. I love how Joyce shows how to add overlays by using dryer lint, tulle, organza and Angelina fibers. If you can't come up with your own design there are several step-by-step projects to get you started. These little landscapes would make wonderful gifts. I can also see making a series of them to capture a favorite vacation spot. A great book for beginners as well as more experienced landscape quilters.
