Judith Karabelnik created… “the view from the landing window when the weeping cherry is in bloom. The waterfalls are crumpled plastic wrap. If you check the right lower corner there is a bee stuck inside the window screen. The deer come right up tot he house and eat my azaleas mostly, so if you look at the top, there is a dappled fawn and his mom highlighted against the house.”

Virginia Peterson created this 14 1/2″ x 19″ foundation pieced pattern by MH Designs. She thought it needed a little something extra, so she added bird buttons even though she says, “…in reality, I wouldn’t want birds near my quilts!”

Lu Nelson has been creating raw-edge applique art quilts for 3 years. This one was created from a sketch of a photo of the Mission at Laguna Pueblo in New Mexico.

Judith Karabelnik created a quilt of an old spring house on the Wyomissing walking trail in PA. 

Judith Karabelnik shares, I Lost My Heart on a Country Road, in Berks County in the Fall.

Cindy Cangley finished her first, very small (10″ x 10″) landscape/pictorial quilt based on a sketch she did from her kitchen window. She says, “It’s not an exact representation, rather more abstract.” She used raw-edge applique and free-motion stitching.

Iris Noronha shares Confetti.

Zuladawn Hall shares her inspiration for her landscape quilt, Crow Butte near Crawford, NE. She grew up about 20 miles from the butte, so it is not only beautiful, but sentimental as well.

Using reverse applique Zuladawn created the fences. She says, “This was exciting for me to do as it is something on my ‘bucket list’ that I wanted to try…”

Brit Staven Eddy shares her black capped chickadee that she framed with a landscape piece. “I wanted the illusion of grass or foliage in the background and a few batiks worked well for this. I also wanted a few branches and to get depth, I used two colors of fabrics. The branches needed a few leaves, but in order to not draw too much attention, I found the light grey worked well.”

Eunsuk Lee shares her digital print of the landscape of Morocco Pez with freemotion quilting.

“I expressed the blue gate with embroidery on the tulle fabric. This is an indication of perspective by adding another layer.”

Iris Noronha shares, My Landscape – Paraiba River

Shumei Wu shares a work-in-progress. The translation wasn’t much help. If someone can translate and share in the comments or respond the Shumei Wu’s post on the group, it would be appreciated. Can’t wait to see how the piece turns out!


Mary Diner shares her first attempt at a landscape quilt…such a great start (despite her protests)!

Melva Nolan shares a mini-mini, 8″ x 10″ landscape from the view of her front yard along with the sample. #MelvaLovesScraps

Denise Losczyk is working on a design idea for a landscape quilt, based on their pecan tree. It will be titled, Pecan Tree in Winter.

Very nice landscapes, I didn’t join in this time, hopefully will next time. Margaret Anderson.

Wonderful quilts; thank you for posting them all in one place to be enjoyed. I believe you have the wrong inspiration picture with Zuladawn Hall’s quilt.

Good Morning Christina, Thank you for letting us know! I’ve switched it. Thanks, Betsey

Loved seeing all these quilts! Landscape quilting is something I want to do. I’ve had these ideas in my head way too long — time to put fabric and needle together!

Great job everyone! The best part of Landscape Quilts is that each show some of the personality of the maker. There are so many points of view and just as many techniques to create them!
