Landscape Class with Renske Helmuth

Renske Helmuth's Landscape class on Wednesday was a great success. We had 14 eager students who created some amazing small landscape projects. Renske dazzled them with just some of her stunning work. You can see that she had them totally captivated.

Here's a look at some of the student's work in progress. These little landscapes are going to be stunning when they are completed.

Here are three of the many landscape quilts from Renske's own collection. Her work is incredibly beautiful and detailed ... much moreso than these photos can portray.

The last photo above depicts the home where Renske grew up in Holland. The details are magnificent. The tree's foliage are created from thread painting. If I'm not mistaken she said that she did the thread painting seperately and then appliqued the pieces onto the quilt. Truely stunning.

Tomorrow I will post pictures from Renske's Crazy Quilt Embellishment class. You won't want to miss it! Until then ...

Happy Quilting!
