My Mt. Baker View (in my dreams)

Note: In my review of this class I wrote, "Some free motion designs and use of Person 805. " when I meant to say, "Some free motion designs and use of PELLON 805." Cannot edit or replace review so am noting the change here. Finished size 29"h x 20"w. I drew the design following Laura's suggestions and then created the pattern from that design. I used the Pellon WonderUnder 805. I love this method of Laura's as it removes the necessity for figuring out the reverse pattern. I used some of my own dyed fabrics and did a minimum of collaged fabrics. I really enjoyed the whole process although keeping glue off my iron was a challenge. The fused binding was an eye opener. So easy to do and ended up looking much better than I had expected from a non-bias strip of printed fabric. My free motion stitching is a work in progress but this was a good practice piece. Looking forward to doing many more. I have a peak-a-boo view of Mt. Baker but in this project, I have been able to indulge my wish for a full view. Earlier, I took Gloria Loughman's class on Linear Landscape Quilts and found it to be fantastic. However, it seemed to be a LOT of work and being a bit lazy, I found Laura's projects a bit easier and faster. No doubt Gloria creates fantastic work and teaches well but if you're looking for an easy(ier) project, then you might consider this class. It's very well taught and illustrated. Thank you Laura.
