Beyond the Secret Garden


This was my entry for the "Doorway to Imagination" challenge that Quilting Arts had. Although it didn't make it into the magazine, I'm still very happy with the way it came out, and am looking forward to seeing it again when they return it to me. I thought it would be nice if you could see what was behind the door, so the door was hinged with a few stitches, and many techniques were used. The door is made of soy silk paper that I made and fused together with fast-to-fuse, and there was puff puff paint, fabric and acrylic paints, hand-dyed fabric, silk ribbon embroidery and hand quilting. The image inside the door is from Dover, printed on purchased prepared for printing fabric.

Hi Lyn,

Good to see your entry - it is lovely. Pity about not getting it into QA, but at least yours got there! All the best, will be watching your Blog to see what you are up to now that our class is finished! Sue

Just lovely! How fun that the door opens to reveal the secret picture!

I used the same door for mine, it didn't make it into the mag either, but I enjoyed the process
