Vermont's Lake Champlain Valley, Joan Jamieson doesn't have to look far to find fertile images for her landscape quilts. Shelburne Vineyard was inspired by a local winery's label. Joan used freezer paper as a template for her pattern pieces, which were stitched together and then built up with fusible web. She embellished the top with satin stitching, raw edge machine appliqué, and fabric markers. Joan has turned her hobby into a business, and now makes commissioned quilts. She also has a line of patterns and teaches classes in local quilt shops.
