Mixed Media Horse Quilt.......Done!

Click Images to Enlarge:

" Life's Doorways"

15 x 15 inches

This is complete and ready to be included in an exhibit of journal quilts at our local hospital, created by our Permission 2 Play Textile Group.

The doorknob plate and drawer pull were found at a local salvage business.
The black wooden star was found at a thrift store.
The paper images came from my stash, which is mostly books from second hand stores.

Jeans Thread was used to create a heavy stitched line across the surface.
It free motion quilted perfectly with a 100/16 Topstitch Needle

Button & Carpet Thread was used to hand sew the 3-D objects.
A very heavy thread and it will hold everything in place.

Back of Quilt

I use hanging triangles on the back with a tiny dowel to support the quilt while on exhibit.
A quick fast-fused label was also added to the back.

Next week I will gather up quilts from all of the Permission 2 Play Members for the exhibit. I will post them here so you can see all of them together as a virtual quilt exhibit.

May Your Bobbin Always Be Full,


  1. That's a pretty cool quilt. I particularly like the horse in the doorway. How big is it?

  2. This is a lovely project with a delightful assortment of mixed media items. I've just become interested in sewing paper and enjoy seeing what people are doing in this realm. Thanks for posting.
