Design Door

Since my sewing room is bran' new, I don't have a design wall, so the door had to substitute to display the first row of Rickrack Road. I can see the disadvantage to a white design wall immediately. It washes out all the fabrics! The units are sewn into blocks of four and then the blocks are joined. Very simple construction and I chain pieced a lot of it.

A closeup. Some fabrics are old, some are new. I used a lot of green and purple, a combo I love.

I have another set of blocks ready to sew together and two more to piece, so progress is being made. This weekend I'll try some tea dyeing. I got some very good instructions and hints from Libby, who was kind enough to help. Thanks, Libby!

I like the purple+green combination. It's going to be a pretty quilt.

Oooooh, I like what you have done so far. It is very pleasing to the eye.

You know, actually that makes a great interior decorating point for the eye to catch. I wouldn't mind a door like that! I've never seen the Rick Rack Road pattern. Very nice!
