Fabric Landscapes by Machine
Decorative Stitching Styles for Quilted Scenes

Author: Linda Crone
Pages: 128
Page size: 8 1/2" x 11"
Publisher: Krause
Cover: Soft

Back Cover Information

Personalize any garment or home accessory by adding your favorite landscape. Stitch a wall hanging of the tranquil lake near your childhood home or add a dramatic mountain scene to a jacket. The steps are surprisingly simple and the results are spectacular.

You'll learn this easy process from beginning to end - from choosing the fabrics to squaring up the scene when you're finished. You can sew your lovely creation into garments or accessories, frame and hang them on a wall, or quilt them and use them on throw pillows or as sofa throws.

Choose from the four landscape patterns included or create your own pattern with the easy to follow directions.
