Landscape quilts are interesting, beautiful and fun to enjoy. But, have you considered making one? You may be surprised how easy it is to make a landscape quilt from leftover fabric in your stash.
In the following video June Dudley walks you through the process of making a beach and water scene from fabric strips. She clearly explains how to select fabric for the sand and water, as well as how to arrange them to give the impression you’re seeking.
She then goes on to show how the quilting can enhance the landscape, as well as how to add embellishments. An appliqued sailboat, embroidered gulls, sparkling beads and even shells can be added if you’re so inclined. She even shows how a landscape looks made into a tote bag.
If you’ve been a bit intimidated by the idea of creating a landscape quilt, give June’s method a try. Think of it as play time, and don’t be surprised by how well your creation turns out.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
