Freelance Landscape Quilting with Debbie Henry

Anyone with a basic knowledge of sewing can learn how to make a beautiful landscape quilt without a
pattern. Each student will create a unique wall hanging quilt.
Learn how to create a tree or shrub with leaves. Students can choose to add elements of nature like snow, spring flowers or leaves. Learn the technique of shading and sunlight effects to give your quilt dimensions. Since there are no mistakes in nature, anyone can create a realistic landscape scene!


1. Sharp sewing scissors (A large [8”] and a small [5”-6”] set of scissors)
2. Elmer glue stick (the kind you would get for an elementary school student)
3. Oil pastel crayons (I use Pentel brand) OR Black, Brown and Grey permanent markers (make sure they are permanent. You might be ironing with steam) I recommend Sharpie markers, but any permanent mark should work.
4. Rotary cutter, ruler and cutting mat.
5. Small iron and pressing mat.
6. Sewing machine and several colors of thread (earth tones…light brown, dark brown, grey, black, etc.) …I recommend getting invisible thread for topstitching the quilt.
7. Small piece of batting. (The size of a fat quarter, 18x20).
8. 3 fat quarters: 1 for the quilt for the front, 1 for the backing of the quilt and another fat quarter for the binding and sleeve.
9. Pins (optional)
10. I recommend getting the fabric prior to class. Using your sharp, small scissors, cut out the leaves. This will speed up the completion of the quilt during class.

Asheville Cotton Co has a bolt of leaf-print batik on hold for this class, just ask for it at the counter. You can use this fabric to have leaf shapes already printed for you to cut out, or you can use any other quilting fabric to cut out your own original leaf shapes!

About Debbie Henry:

"When I was 10 years old, a neighbor down the street offered sewing classes in her basement. Since we did not have AC, it seemed like a great way to avoid the summer heat. I fell in love with creating with fabric.
"I have tried all forms of sewing from clothes to drapes to quilts. Creating quilts gave me the opportunity to not just follow a pattern but create my own. I have been creating quilts (both wall hangings and bed quilts) for 50+ years. My latest passion is creating landscape quilts."
