This quilt has a pieced background, and is machine appliqued and machine quilted. I used commercial and hand painted fabrics.

During my photography days in art school, I created unique images and textures by burning slides with a match – the results were always surprising…
My quilt “Portal” uses one of these images creating what looks like an opening, or a passageway.
The main piece was quilted first and couched with yarn; then, I created the separate photo-image quilt and appliquéd it to the main piece.

I made some photo images on the tea bag paper for the letters and the tea strainer. The lemons are also photo images. The tea cup and teapot were created by putting yarn, thread, and roving between two pieces of water soluble stabilizer, and free motion quilting on top. I also created stencils with freezer paper for the leaves on the background, and binding, which is cheesecloth.
