Miniature Landscapes workshop at Wangaratta.

Standard

A few weekends ago I had a wonderful time with the Centre Quilters Circle at Wangaratta. I stayed in a cottage nestled in an amazing garden belonging to the most creative and hospitable Sandra Makin. The ladies in my class designed their own landscapes after completing my pattern (you can see parts of the blue bell woods in some of the pictures) . We covered composition, colour, and fabrics that work well for landscapes. Thank you to all for an unforgettable weekend!

The following are ‘works in progress’.
