At our patchwork group, we were asked to make a door or a gate. None of us has been very thrilled by the idea, but it had to be done. So here is what I came with, just finished it. The background is made of a layer of black net, with patches of colored organza, simply sewed with a black metallic thread. The gate itself was made with the embellisher, one layer of commercial felt, one of scrim in the same colores as the background patches, little patches of fabrics embroidered with the built-in stitches of my sewing maching (great fun, by the way) and a layer of orange organza. Then again sewed by machine on the background, and the "stones" are hightlighted with the same metallic thread. The piece is 10"x10".
