  1. All of your quilts are fantastic, your thread work is to good to be true, I love the frames, are they fabric?  If not, did you have the glass  over the art?  I made one , but left the glass out, with the glass on , it looks like a painting.

  2. Hi Anne and thank you for all the lovely comments!   Most of the frames are wood with a few exceptions.  I get my husband to make them for me.  I did not use glass for the same reason you found.  I also like it that people can touch the piece (I know you aren’t supposed to but I do).

  3. Calna, your landscapes are so pure and peaceful . . . and beautiful!  I too enjoy making landscape quilts, but usually add too much stuff/details (the problem of knowing when to stop!).  I love that yours are relatively simple (meant in the best possible way) — all the elements are there and you definitely know how much to include to get it “just right.”  Perhaps that’s why they seem “pure” to me; you provide the scene and leave room for each of us to imagine ourselves right there!

  4. calna, I went to your website after you responded to my comment and enjoyed looking at more of your landscape quilts.  Do you use paint at all, or only fabric and thread? 

  5. hi again

    I did not use anything on this piece but on others I have used crayons, pebeo translucent paints and sometimes made my own skys with the pebeo paints.  I also sometimes use bleach to make a sun or a moon and then neutralize it.  I hope this helps.
