School under Lodge Hill

This Landscape quilt was made as a leaving present for the Headmistress of our girls Primary School.

I made the building very angular and distorted the perspective.  Reviewing the picture now I see that dots and spots dominate my fabric collection.

In the rush to create I did not take the time I now do to ensure my seams and lines meet up.  These now scream “slow down and be careful”.

One of the down sides of the technique I used in the early days (joining a whole line of pieces along the radial line) is if you are not precise in your marking out and stitching inaccuracies will be seen down the entire group of pieces.  This is what has happened along the upper line of the hills!
