Oh goody, I have a quilt completed in February – my landscape that’s been in the works almost all of 2014. It began with a photo I took in 2012 of the tidal salt marsh beside the Annapolis Royal gardens in Nova Scotia. The photo isn’t much, but I loved the tall gate that divided the marsh from the gardens.
I’ve dragged this project through online courses on series and landscapes, and have plans to do the same landscape at different times of the year.
I used Vikki Pignatelli’s turned under curved edge method for most of it, with fused raw edge applique for the grasses and gate. It is free motion quilted (just don’t look too closely at it) and finished with Gloria Loughman’s binding method. It’s described in her book Radiant Landscapes.
Tidal Salt Marsh, Annapolis Royal, finished size 14.5 by 32 inches.
