This is a work in progress. I'm a member of an art quilt group and we have a challenge called "Doors". We are each making a quilt of a door and this shows what I have so far. This a picture of an old, outside cathedral utility door. I created the door from simple muslin as I wanted that rough texture. I then washed the surface with black and white SoSoft fabric paints by Deco Art to give the gray appearance. I then started detailing with more SoSoft paints, Caran D'Ache water soluble crayons, watercolor pencils and regular colored pencils. I pieced each section of the door to simulate a raised appearance in certain sections. I drafted the arch above the door on freezer paper and will use thin vinyl to simulate a shiny window then applique the rest over that. I will quilt the piece heavily with silk thread to simulate the wood grain. I will be making "bricks" out of fabric and will hand applique them around the door. Let me know what you think so far!
