I invented my own piecing technique using a tear-away foundation and even though this quilt is made up of a gazzillion squares, my rows are straight. Lol, I can't tell you how many times I've read the judge's comments "Straight rows need to be straight". Now they are What advice would you give someone starting this project? Start with simpler projects before you start a larger quilt like this. Collect landscape fabrics when ever you can - even quarter yard pieces can be great to build your fabric collection.

Absolutely stunning! I am a Michigander and recogniced your "Pictured Rock" wallhanging immediately. I am looking for something new and different. I think your technique is it!
Cathy Geier answered:
I love Pictured Rocks! We've been there 2-3 times now and I can't wait to get back. What a gorgeous place, a forest, a cold clear lake, and amazing formations and colors in the rocks. Just love it in the UP!
Starling425 asked:
I'm in awe. You pieced this thing with squares and what looks like triangles. Wow!
Cathy Geier answered:
Hi there... I'm not nuts and yes I did piece the whole thing with squares and triangles. And rectangles. I use tear -away foundation to piece my quilts though, so its not like I have to sew one square to another, and then to another, etc. I actually patented the technique, and its written up with good illustrations in my book. I'm making strip pieced landscapes using the same kind of thing now and hopefully I'll be adding another project soon. Thanks again for the compliments!
