Door in situ



My Tunisian Door quilt has returned from display at Quilt Museum 'Under African Skies' and for the moment anyway is hanging outside the bathroom next to the travel (and double stacked fiction) books. It looks like you could go through it to next door!



It looks comfortable opposite 'City Girls Dream of the Sea', a quilt from 11 years ago, also made in an improvisational style mainly from various charity shop indigo fabrics - the palm tree dressing gown was a particularly good find. It was hand quilted while recovering from surgery  and is probably the most personal in meaning of my quilts - I do dream of the sea!!

It even featured on the front cover of Popular Patchwork (after it won 3rd prize in competition at Harrogate that year) I really should get a decent photo of it ....

I love that indigo quilt, Mags. What a wonderful thing to do with recycled fabrics!

I like to see these quilts where they live....will you keep 'door' there.

Lovely to see some of your work at home.

"City girl's dream..." is still one of my favourites.
