Class Description:

In this class each participant will start to assemble a small landscape quilt (smaller than 24" square) from a photograph, and should be able to finish the project on her own after the end of the day.   Emily will guide you in choosing fabrics, creating depth with color choices and interesting ways to create the details.  Please bring a photograph of a landscape that you like (flower photos OK too).  The photograph can have personal significance or come from a book or calendar.   If you are not good at sketching please bring an enlarged color photocopy (11x17).
