Create your landscape art quilts with ease using the techniques presented by Rose Hughes in "Dream Landscapes."
Intrigued by art quilts but not sure how to create your own, or having trouble making your quilting ideas a reality? Try "Dream Landscapes" from Rose Hughes. She has refined a method of making quilts using freezer paper, and the raw edges are covered with couching. The book is very approachable with several step-by-step examples. The small wall quilts I've made (I consider myself a wannabe art quilter with traditional quilting background) using the techniques from the book surprised me with the ease of construction and satisfying result. It's a good guide for creating your own dream quilts!
