Linear Landscapes

Project Description

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.

What you will need

  • Fabric (mostly batik)
  • steam-a-steam 2
  • batting
  • backing
  • thread.
