Minimalistic Landscapes - Less is More
6-Hour Workshop
12 pm - 6 pm EDT, Thursday, March 21

Ever dreamt of creating a killer landscape quilt but stuck in a sea of choices? Dive into the world of minimalistic landscapes where less is more! Jen's got the playbook to guide you through, making it a breeze with a limited fabric selection and a knockout color palette using scraps or yardage. Let the fabric do the talking as Jen walks you through a pieced and layered process that turns simplicity into dynamic beauty.

Students to Provide

This workshop focuses on creating a minimalistic landscape using an image, photograph or sketch that has been made into a line drawing. The possibilities are endless. When choosing a photo or image please make sure to be aware of the copyright on it - I suggest using a photograph that you have taken. The other focus of this workshop is to work with a limited selection of fabric - the desert scene was created with a very limited selection of fabrics - some were scraps the rest were fat quarters. 

Workshop project is between 18" - 24" 

Choose a color palette that suits the landscape you have chosen, for example:

• Winter scene - neutrals, white, greys, and a splash of color
• Desert Scene - rusts, reds, gold, yellows and blue
• Beach Scene - blues, teals, browns, greens
• Sunrises or sunsets - purples, oranges, pinks, reds, blues, blacks 

The goal for this workshop is that the fabric does the talking and creates the landscape which means a variety in the fabrics is needed as they will add texture, movement, and dimension to the landscape - solids, prints, geometrics, florals, tone on tones, swirls, stripes, ombre - pretty much anything goes - a variety of values in these fabrics is recommended.

Fat quarters, scraps, and ½ yard cuts will be plenty for this project. 

Backing & Batting - a piece that is 2” larger all the way around than the finished landscape
