Stylized Landscapes IV

Deborah O'Hare @Quilt Routes

For the final piece in this series I wanted to have a bit of fun. I decided to have a go at making a larger version of this piece which began life as a workshop sample.

I like playing with strips.

I like lots of close straight line stitching.

Stylized Landcapes III

Deborah O'Hare @Quilt Routes

Number III in this series is slightly different form the first two in that I did have a particular scene in mind as I put it together.

Deborah O'Hare @Quilt Routes

It is based on the view from my house across the bay but the a bit of artistic license involved.

Deborah O'Hare @Quilt Routes

The omittance of any buildings is a bit of a nod to my day dreaming as I look out of my kitchen window. I know that I am extremely fortunate to enjoy the views that I have but I often wish I could see how this bit of coast looked before man began to infringe upon it.

Deborah O'Hare @Quilt Routes

Are there any views that effect you in that way?

Stylized Landscape l

This is the first of four long landscapes that I want to share.
Those who follow me in Instagram and Facebook (plug! plug! :D) will have already seen them but here is the first with a bit more detail.

I just played with the fabric with no real plan in mind, apart from a general colour theme.

I generally used scraps from other projects...

...and bits and pieces I have been saving...plus some experimentation with the stitching.

I also played around different edge finishes.

Well...


...I could just share another Fabric Friday but instead I am going to tell you about what I has been keeping me busy lately.


I have been teaching my Strippy Landscape workshop with a local group Gwent Quilters.


Last weekend I had the pleasure of travelling to the historic town of Warwick where I visited the Quilter's Den and taught Scrappy Happy cushions

Scappy Happy  Cushions workshop

I have also given my talk Tales from the Scrap Bag to Malvern Quilters ...

Tales from the Scrap Bag by Deborah O'Hare

..and Duffryn Quilters, who don't have a website, but I have just found this delightful You Tube video of their exhibition for 2013. Enjoy some quilting from the Welsh Valleys :D
