What materials did you use? Fabric (mostly batik), steam-a-steam 2, batting, backing, thread.

What are you most proud of? I wanted to try the tiling technique that Gloria shows in her book Radiant Landscapes. I also did some thread painting on one of the mountains. A friend gave me a lovely batik that had black, gray, and brown linear stripes. I cut it on the diagonal but I added the thread painting to soften the straight sides.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Gloria is a fantastic teacher and you really learn a lot. The instructions were very easy to follow. Take the class and have lots of fun.

I like the strong lines on the hill on the left. No curves, but angled lines.

This hill was actually made from a stipe fabric that a friend shared with me. I cut it on an angle then did some thread painting to soften the straight lines. It was fun to do and I liked the effect that the difference made to the quilt.

I used a procedure that was covered in one of Gloria's books. I painted the fabric as she shows in the video. Then I ironed Steam-a-seam on the back and cut the fabric into tiles which I then ironed onto the background. I liked the effect.
