PARK GATES  2003                                   Back to Gallery

 

As in 'Hydrangea Fence', the background scene is made up of squares prepared with fabric strips. Colourful Bali's and Batiks were used for a painterly effect and a king sized flannelette sheet was used as a design wall. The gate was designed and drafted to size, using motifs seen in many different gates. Opening the gate invites the viewer to step through and be part of the picture

Machine piecing, machine quilting and hand reverse appliqué

*This quilt was a first prize winner in the pictorial section of the NEC show 2003 and was selected to hang in Houston.
