As I mentioned earlier, sometimes thready raw edges bother me. To solve both issues, I recommend se ing your sewing machine to a wide zigzag and use monoﬁlament to stitch down the edges. Do this before you add your backing. ) Figure 2: Fuse in place. 45 String Piecing If you have lots of scraps in all shapes and sizes, then boy, do I have a method for you. I absolutely love string piecing. I can throw on my favorite movie and sew, sew, sew without having to think too hard. Start by organizing your scraps and gathering strips of fabric.
In Foggy Fall (page 86), the background is stipple quilted with a lightly colored variegated thread. A dark thread is used to quilt the leaves and the surrounding area. 64 Quilting tiny loops, circles and ﬂowers adds interest to appliquéed elements in your landscape, as shown here in Foggy Spring (page 82). Blocking and Binding A er the quilting is done, block your quilt. If you are conﬁdent that none of your fabric will bleed, simply soak the quilt in cold water and spin out the excess. Stretch the quilt out in a clean, carpeted area, and use carpentry rulers to ensure 90° corners.
In Wildﬂowers by the Sea (page 74), I added pink and lavender. Hills and Mountains Creating hills and mountains can be as simple as joining two strips of fabric—one strip of mountain fabric and one strip of background fabric. You can sew the two strips together creating the same 45° angle used to join binding strips, or you can use other angles to create sloping hills or steep mountains. These bluﬀs in Strip-Pieced Spring (page 68) are mainly created using 45° angles. Mix the angles to create a natural-looking rock outcropping, as shown here in Lone Cypress Tree (page 120).
