Diamond Landscape Workshop

Saturday, February 21st, 2009

The two-day workshop in Montana was awesome – we had a great class and here are some photos of the students and their work!

Martha Knox’s finished quilt

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2009

A couple of years ago I taught on a Carnival Cruise to the Mexican Riviera. The quilter’s cruise was sponsored by my friend, shop owner Nancy Amidon of Amidon Quiltworks. My workshop was Diamond Landscapes with a new fusible technique, and the cruisers created either an underwater or beachy theme. Each participant embellished her creation with applique, found items, and inspiration from the cruise excursions ashore.

Martha Knox proudly shares her beautiful underwater quilt with you! Great Job, Martha!

The diamonds were arranged on a gridded fusible foundation, with the edges overlapping by 1/4″. All the finishing of seams was completed after the cruise.

Wow, what a quick trip to the Redondo & Hermosa Beach area – just west of Long Beach. The Diamond Landscape / Monet Waterlily workshop was terrific – take a peek!

In 2005 I taught a Diamond Landscape workshop at Asilomar in Pacific Grove, CA. Marge Abel was in the workshop, and designed her own quilt from a photographic inspiration. Here are photos of her work in progress, and Marge’s finished piece (fall, 2008). Great work, Marge! Congratulations!
