A Gloria Loughman Workshop

I am so enjoying Gloria's workshop. It's a 2-day on luminous landscapes. Now, I don't usually make landscape quilts, but I do like what Gloria has been working on lately. Mine is still in with the ANZAC theme of banners (wait and see what), and involves a sunrise. Some of the other ladies are doing sunsets (using beautiful vivid colours) and some are doing forest type backgrounds.
Anyway here is the morning's work:
See the little piles of rectangles on the right? They are 2" x 3/4" and took ages to cut out.
Anyway, this is what I finished with at the end of the day:
Still have more dark rectangles to add and glue down, then on to quilting it. Tomorrow we work on the bottom pieces.
Gloria is a wonderful teacher. She is very encouraging, gave us quick lessons in colour and painting as well all the things to consider for a great landscape.
