My vestibule

A vestibule /ˈvɛstɨbjuːl/ is a lobby, entrance hall, or passage between the entrance and the interior of a building (Wikipedia).

Today, and actually most of this week, I have been working on my (City &Guilds) wall hanging. To be honest, the idea was already on paper for a long time, but I have been struggling to get it together in fabric. I just could not decide on the fabric placement. 
In the end I decided to go back to the original design and play a bit more on paper (and on the computer) with colours and (scanned in) fabrics. Finally after a few days stewing, my ideas crystallised into a firm plan. So today I have been cutting, placing and sticking fabrics to make this:

Tomorrow I hope to decide if I will leave the panel on the right pieced (as above) or if I will use one fabric (below), detailing may then be added in stitching/quilting.

Then the fabrics will be permanently bonded in place and the stitching can begin... 



  1. really like this piece, it has a luminosity, good luck with it

  2. Wow. This is a very creative quilt! I love it!

  3. Very nice! I like the pieced panel better than the solid. It adds more interest again the larger solid pieces. Good luck with it!

  4. That's very cool. It sort of drew me in : )

  5. This is lovely. I really like the version with the pieced wall section. It gives the effect of bricking. I think the project is coming together beautifully!

  6. It's a great looking piece. It really draws the eye towards the opening.

  7. I'm so far behind with my blog reading that this comment is most probably of no use to you but I really like it with the pieced wall x
