the Garden Gate art quilt

still unfinished..I need to put an edging on... Posted by Picasa
I took an online class at QU back in Sept. called "Structured Fabrics" ...
we made 3 pieces of fabric from junk fabric ...
these were my practice pieces...
I have now decided to make an art quilt from them...
it's called "The Garden Gate" ...
there was a LOT of sewing to do on these pieces...
