Deb - 'WELCOME'





Finally! my quilt for Lynn.
We knock on doors and pass through many doorways in our lives, and of course we always hope for a big welcome!
I chose some contemporary door designs on the internet for my images.
Thank you for an interesting challenge Lynn.

Welcome to my castle by Ngaire

After some reverse sewing and camera problems I can finally post this quilt. I have always enjoyed reading Scottish history and decided that over the drawbridge was a good doorway into the castle.

Doorways to ... - Judith


A most interesting challenge requiring the little grey cells to rattle around a bit but finally “Doorways to ...” made it.  
This quilt was predominately made using hand dyed fabric, it is appliqu├ęd, quilted and once more I used watercolour pencils to enhance and highlight.
You will have fun receiving all the little parcels and thank you for the challenge I enjoyed being made think outside the square.
Enjoy.

Enjoy!!

Number 10 - Kay




When I saw the challenge 'Doorways' the first thought in my head was 'Number 10', one of the world's best known doors. My research on the net revealed , in a photographer's blog, that the number one is ever so slightly larger than the zero, and the zero, while being perfectly round on the outside is an uneven oval on the inner edge. So here is a small section of that very famous door, 10 Downing St, London, SW1A2AA, United Kingdom.

[and did you know that you cannot open the door to no. 10 from the outside - there is always someone on the inside to open the door - that is according to Stephen Fry on QI   Margie]

What's behind the Doors? - Helen



There are over 80 bathing boxes that present quite a spectacle along Melbourne's Brighton Beach. These weatherboard and corrugated iron structures are compact, colourful and are without electricity and water. I haven't visited any of these boxes but have always wondered what's inside - I presume that it's mainly privacy!
