Leah, this class and your patient instruction gave me the techniques and inspiration I needed to finish my first art quilt, or any quilt for that matter. I had been carrying this idea around in my head for a while and am so thankful to you for helping me feel the confidence I needed to bring it to life. Can't wait to do the next one. Thank you so much,

Very very nice Wanda51! It looks as if we are on the same path. I signed up for Leah's class so that I could learn FMQ to do a landscape quilt myself! I really love the trees, how did you do those?

Hi, Sojourn, Doing this was a blast, I hope you have as much fun with yours. I did the trees in the background using "mini" seed beads that I got at a small local quilt/craft shop. I Have found the same size at bead stores and they are size 15 seed beads. I used clear Fireline as thread and free beaded the tree truncks and then filled in with a couple of shades of green beads for the leaves. I took small stiches and kept exposure on the back of the piece to a minimum. Using Leah's trick, I burried any starts or ends of the thread in the middle. The trees in the front were cut from fabric in my stash, cut to size needed, bonded to felt zig-zag on edge and then embelished with various beads. The tough thing in this for me was stopping. I could always seem to find another spot that needed some sort of embelishment.
