I love making cityscapes, and you will too! After reading my book and/or taking my class, students tell me they’ve never looked at buildings the same way again. I’ve made New York City, Chicago, and Los Angeles-themed quilts, plus a lot of fantasy cities.
Below are some of my cityscape quilts. More are in my two soon-to-be published new books, “Quilted New York,” right, and Scrap Cities: Joyful Modern Cityscape Quilts,” to be published in 2023.
During research on foot, I’ve been thrown out of some of New York’s finest lobbies (when I wandered in innocently to take pictures! Their security guards were all very nice while commanding me to exit. Between Covid and security concerns, you can’t wander into some iconic buildings any more.)
To the right, the central quilt, ‘Colorblock New York,’ was juried into the Tactile Architecture section of the International Quilt Festival, Houston, 2022.
I want to thank you for a wonderful workshop and a great booklet. I really enjoyed your explanations and samples, and it made me want to do more, and expanded my view. You shared with us how to look at buildings, and how to translate those to fabric- it was just great. – JH
You are a great teacher and I will buy your book when you publish it. – FC
