    My sewing room is in my basement. There is a metal outside door, so I made this quilted wallhanging to cover it. I glued magnetic strips to the back at the top and bottom then I can just lift the top down (pic 2) to let the light in.

    My sewing room has french doors that lead to the family room. I've been wanting to do this myself to hide my messy room better than the shear that are there now! You did a great job, and have given me some encoragement! What did you do for the backing?

    What a great idea. I love it. And the wall hanging is pretty too. I love the sewing machine.
