Today I was so excited by my landscape quilt that it was the only project I worked on all day. However, I accomplished a ton! The top (it's only wallhanging sized) is completely assembled and ready for machine embroidery.
Below the snow-covered mountains that I worked on yesterday are brown mountains. I had two batiks that were along the purple-brown lines that I wanted, but were too close in color to each other.
Bleaching is definitely intimidating, instead of making the colors lighter it might jsut wash them out or do something funky. But this time it worked great! Check out the two fabrics after I bleached the lighter one.
Then, in the foreground are some cliffs with Dall Sheep. Here they are! You can also see the assembled river and sandbars.
Tomorrow (or maybe tonight!) I will start on the machine embroidery. I'm not quite sure what to embroider, aside from faces onto the sheep. I'm still a little vague about what goes into the machine embroidery step and what goes into the quilting step, because they both seem pretty similar to me.
