I SO want to do one landscape quilt. Not the size as indicated in the drawing, but a wall quilt. This one is perfect not only for the simplicity of design, but reliance on quilting for it's cool factor.
"Birches" - sewn fabric collage by Merle Axelerad; "Each of these textile art pieces are created by sewing thousands of fabric pieces together collage style to create the final fabric collage. Unlike traditional collage, Merle Axelrad uses no adhesives in creating her landscapes."
Award-winning quilter and fabric artist Lenore Crawford has created a simply amazing technique to create realistic-looking quilts from photographs. Her easy-to-learn technique includes creating a pattern from a photograph, building a palette of fabrics that match the photo, cutting and fusing the pieces together, and then adding small painted details to add depth and dimension before quilting.
