Jeannette Ringuette's landscape quilt is based on a picture that a friend from work took while he was vacationing in Florida. She recreated the view in fabric and gave this to him as a late Christmas present.
She used applique, thread art, fabric paint, and a bit of painted cheesecloth to create the beach scene. She even used a makeup pad which she painted yellow for the sun.
Jeannette used the Thistle Shades Pack for the perfect purple-gray colors of the evening sea. Thistle is a great fabric for landscape quilts. It's almost black but not as stark as black and the lighter shades are almost gray but not as cold as gray. It's very popular with landscape quilt artists.
For sharing, Jeannette received a 20% coupon for the shop that's good for 3 months! If you have made anything with my hand dyed fabric I hope you will consider sharing it in the Customer Gallery. The only rule is that projects have to be complete. It doesn't have to be made totally from hand dyed fabric, just include a recognizable amount.

I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
