Layer by Layer - What I Created in Gloria's Class


Just thought you might be interested in seeing my progress from last Wednesday. This is the wall hanging I started in Gloria Loughman's class. Her technique has five layers. The layers in this pattern included a sky, a hill with rocks, a flat area with a river, a lake or ocean and an underwater scene.

I have not completely finished my layers yet. I am still a little hesitant about the ocean or lake part. I don't know if I am happy with the colours that I used. Maybe I am being too critical and have to take some time away from this thing in order to see it differently. I also have to read Gloria's instructions again. I think each layer is machine appliqued, embellished and quilted before it is added to the rest of the quilt. The good part is that I have Gloria's email address in case I don't understand her instructions. But I think I will figure it out. Hopefully I will be able to show you a finished wall hanging in January. For now I think I will have to put this one aside and work on my Christmas projects. Sew many quilts! Sew little time!

Your piece is GORGEOUS Hetty. You are being way too hard on yourself. I've been sick for the past week and haven't had a chance to move forward with mine. (Sigh!). I can't wait to start experimenting beyond Gloria's pattern.

I have never seen anything done like this before. It almost looks like a painting with water colors. SO pretty.
