Ready for Quilting!!

I stayed up late doing laundry and cutting out 'doors', and was at it again early this morning, fusing the pieces in place. I've done the satin stitching around them, and it's on to the quilting. Here's how it ended up--

If you compare this with the picture of the 'doors' I was auditioning yesterday, you'll see they are very different. The more I looked at the first set, the more I realized I had too many colors going. So I limited the doors to reds, oranges, and violets- which seemed to work great.

So now it's on to the quilting. I've already got a back, with all the dyeing I had to do to get the background. Hopefully I can do some auditioning of patterns today.

You're right this selection of colored doors works much better. Its not so kaotic. Can't wait to see what you do with the quilting.
