Patti:

Wow.  I think my favorite is the landscape of the lake and mountains.  The man standing there is perfect, the shading is remarkable. 

I agree...that's my favorite too!

I sure did.  It makes it even more amazing.  I love how they mix together perfectly.  I wonder how long it took to choose the fabrics, and make the design.

Amazing quilts.  Love the modified Baltimore Album that uses some pieced blocks.  And the sampler quilt that looks like the blocks are just floating on all that white.   Gorgeous quilting on several of these.  Thanks for sharing.   Quilt shows usually make me very unworthy....LOL>

I think all the landscapes are amazing.   Patti I agree that the one with the man is outstanding.

Frances the quilts are lovely.  I have a friend that would love that dolphin one.  All of them are great.  Would be hard to pick a favorite.  Thanks for showing them to us.

I just went back to study this quilt a little more closely.  Do you see the grey sphere in the center?  I wonder if that is netting or what???  It definitely appears to overlap the piecing and it goes through the foreground, water, mountains and even into a sliver of the sky.  I've seen landscape quilts done with the diagonal strips before but this is much more complexed.    

Actually there is a Craftsy Class  "Diamond Quilt Designs" by Jan Krentz.  I haven't signed up for that one, but...it looks like it would be a good lead in to this.

I have a landscape quilt I am still mulling over as to what will work best ...
