Marti, love the silver bling of "Amy's New Door"!  It contrasts nicely with the red fabrics.

Thank you Denise!  The silver bling numbers and letters came from the local scrapbooking store.  They are called Thickers:  http://www.americancrafts.com/category.php?id=29

Denise,

I love the background colors and the shimmer.   The stitching gives the color structure.  I like the images in the background. I like searching for things in a collage.  I love not having things shout out at me but they are there for me to find.

Marti,

I have always been drawn to the door shape.  It is great how the letters and numbers contrast to the reds.  I like the horizontal striping of reds. Now, what or where are you going to put this door? I would be interested in seeing that.

Resourceful and creative!  I especially like the technique of couching over the perle cotton - it looks great!

Rectangles

This piece was constructed from rectangles layered and machine quilted in a grid pattern.    I added sleeves to the back side to make a removable book cover.  It fits a 6" x 8" journal.

A little rough but I'm pretty pleased with the shapes which are leaves.  I only had a small bit of the 'perfect' fabric and needed 3 leaves that will be attached to a small wall hanging.  The batting is the very thinnest I could find in my leftover pile.  I used a very small zigzag and then free motioned the spine and veins.  I cut them out and added more zigzag to the edges.  The slight waviness adds to their charm.  They are quite small and that does present its own problems.

The door was mailed to my friend Amy. She loves it!

Elle, Love your three quilted fabric leaves.  I can see why you chose them for the "perfect" fabric!  The quilting gives them a nice body  - great effect!
