COUNTRY GATE  41" X 50"  2002                 Back to Gallery

                     

A well trodden pathway invites you to open the gate and step through to explore the country garden beyond. There are flower borders, bushes and tangled undergrowth to lead you towards the light of the distant horizon.

Machine piecing, machine quilting and hand reverse appliqué

*Each element of this gate was designed using the same simple pattern shape. A heart template was used to create the circular motif, the row of over-lapping hearts and the line linking the traditional dog bars along the lower edge.
