I've made a little progress on Door #2...
This is a more complicated block - lots of little pieces that could be simplified and it's possible that I will simplify it. Or not. I can't tell right now. I am thinking that I will treat each block as a separate quilt - but they could be sewn together. I'm finding that this is an incredibly flexible set of designs.
Kim, a friend here in Sherman, sent this photo of a door from a structure in Norway that dates from the 1500s. I think that's grass on the roof, isn't it? The base of the house makes me think of feudal Japan which is just totally wrong.
Marlene sent me two photos. This one is from one of Napoleon's villas on Elba:
And these from a fortress in Monteriggioni from 1213. Amazing to think that all of these doors we old before our country was even an idea. We should all feel young together! (Oops, forgot the photos. Here they are:)
I don't know if you noticed, but I did add a link to my Pinterest boards in the sidebar of the blog and on the piece o' cake home page. Now I just need to remember to pin more things.
I've also added a search feature to this blog. Who knew I could do that! I've used it already to try to find old posts and I'm happy to report that it works!
