What are you most proud of? That is was exhibited in the Museum of the American Quilter's Society as part of their Lewis and Clark commemoration.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Start small and simple...

The waterfall was made over the pieced quilt top. I used long strips of white organza and tulle to create the flowing effect.

You do beautiful work. I am going to look for your book. I also wish you could teach a class. It is so much better to see the process being done.Thanks for sharing.

Great job on the water! That is one of the hardest things to depict in landscape quilts - your technique really works in this quilt! Love it!

This quilt is inspiring. The perception of the mountains is exceptional. Any clues to your thought process to get this affect? Am new to quilting but know that landscapes are in my near future..

In most landscapes, the depth is created by value. Deeper darker valued fabrics are placed in front of lighter values. So my foreground is dark... Since this quilt is made up of 2 inch squares of fabric, to create the mountains I simply kept darker gray fabrics toward the bottom and lighter gray to white toward the top... I was trying to give them a snowy look. Thanks for the compliments! Cathy
