My World is Green (Doorways)

I'm very happy with how  my quilt for Sue Ridgewell Challenge for QGBI AGM has turned out. The theme 'My World is Green' was inspiring and I'd forgotten how much I like the 24 inch square format - I've made a lot this size in the past. It's mainly inkjet prints of doors from my travels  on Jacquard Cotton sheets or bubble-Jet set treated fabrics quilted to death but what really makes it is  the silk lamination of inkjet prints of doors, again  heavily stitched and cut back in places to reveal what lies underneath.

Have yet to give it a title  that  sums up the layers and glimpses of doorways - "Green Door I" seems a little dull! Any ideas?

I agree, it's fabulous. The surface leads you further and further in and is so intriguing. I will look forward to having a proper look at the AGM.

Magnifique quilt, bravo

Nice one! Another iffy title suggestion: Doorway into a Greener World (very iffy!)

This is the look of Spring which we are so looking forward to! Lovely work.
I believe that you have taken photos of many Greek doors, in which case you could call this piece the alliterative, but clumsy sounding Prasinnes portes (Green doors). How about just Sesame.
