A love of old barns and a photograph by Willard Clay sparked the idea for Joyce R. Becker's winter farm scene. She incorporated fabric painting, surface thread work, and layered and glued batting and tulle, as well as topstitching with invisible thread, to achieve shading and depth in the dimensional landscape. A prize-winning quilter and teacher, Joyce has completed her third book on landscape quilts, Beautifully Embellished Landscapes, published by C&T Publishing.
