I have become interested in landscape quilts. I got Valerie Hearder's books Beyond the Horizon and Point of View. Excellent books, very instructive. I decided this was something I wanted to try.

I have been thinking of doing a Bob Ross painting, and thought- why not do it in fabric?

I am quite pleased with the results. I started with a yellow background fabric which I painted with watercolor pencils. Then I started piecing the foreground. I used a mixture of thread painting and the pencils to embellish . Then I framed the scene with this beautiful Native American patterned fabic and finished with a silver concho of a spinning lizard below the cactus. I like it very much, and I look forward to doing more.
