Featured Quilt - One Door, Two Door, Stone Door, Castle Door

Our third quilt from the UK Doorways Challenge comes to us from Ann Moody. Her quilt, Picton Castle Interpreted, was all about using a different technique on each of the doors represented throughout her work. She says, "Inspired by the doorways seen on a visit to Picton Castle, Pembrokeshire.  Each doorway was created using one, two or more of the following - patchwork, applique, printing on fabric, ink dyeing, fibre pens or Galetos. The background was screen printed and all the work was machine quilted."
