Landscape Quilt

I have been slowly plodding away on the landscape quilt. Today I decided to add the borders. I have already done some free motion stitching and when I sandwich it I will quilt around all the trees, hills etc.

I surprised myself and managed to get the mitres on the outer border right the first time.

I still have to applique or embroider the dead trees in front of the bottom dam.

I'm pleased to be ahead of schedule with this instead of leaving it until the last minute.

This picture on the left is the one I worked from for this quilt, I will admit to using a little 'artistic licence.' You will also notice that the quilt is a mirror image of the original picture.

Sue, this is such a beautiful landscape quilt. I've tried one, and it just looks like blobs. All the different layers of scenery is breathtaking.

Thanks Shelina, it's only my second attempt. I'm pleased with how it's turned out.

This is a lovely quilt!!! Would love to see it more detail to understand how it is done! Is it hand or machine appliqued??
