    ... there's a nice crop of them coming up!

    These are from Wilmington Prints' "Autumn in the Air" collection. The group also includes pheasant motifs and rural barn scenics, but here are the land-and-sky designs.

    Grass in two colors:

    Three skies. Not sure if I like the goldy-orange one, myself, though it would be useful for a sunset.

    Great grass and the goldy one looks like something is on fire.. scary! the sky is nice too.. put that above the waves you had on earlier.. and waiting for the sand postings and maybe an applique sea shell and well.. get with it. The idea is right there in your little buy me box...

    These next ones are also from Wilmington. The collection is called "Reel 'em In".

    Ok. It's called "underwater scenic". Might we say that would be taking landscape quilting to "new depths"? :)

    And more sky. Note the birds, that's different. Do you like the and think they add something? Or would it be better off without them?

    And rocks.

    The collection also includes fishermen and boat. And fish. (These were just the landscape-y coordinates.)

    Like them all - the birds do look like seagulls, so would go nice in a beachy themed quilt. Does your store carry all of these?

    There's a wallhanging panel and a stripe and a scenic:

    I like my sky very light blue with clouds. I like the first one with the birds. The others are too dark for me.
    The others are lovely! I can see lots of possibilities for those fabrics.

    Those will be fun to work with!
    As for the birds...I had an art instructor once tell me to always add a bird to the sky...that birds add life...
    When I asked her about the people or animals in a painting, she repeated herself..."birds add life".

    Wow-I love them all. I've never made a landscape quilt-I'd probably use these as "blenders".
    Thanks again for posting these. It gets us looking ahead and of course, planning MORE projects LOL.

    Wow! Love all of them! A quilt with fabrics purchased during last years trip across America is on my "to do" list for this year. I intend to make about 4 landscape appliques from specific places and surround with quilt blocks bearing the names of the states we visited. These fabrics would make the scenic blocks just come alive! Thanks for sharing. Now I am getting excited about starting the quilt!

    I'm a sucker for sky fabric and those are great. I don't care for the birds, though. I think it limits the use of the fabric. I'd prefer it withOUT the birds. But there are so many others to choose from I'm sure I'd survive:>
