Torah Mantel Front Panels

Follow my process re-posts of the Beth El Synagogue Torah Mantels.

November 19, 2009

The first two front panels were originally one full mantel, but it took so long that the project was going over budget. I decided to cut the one into two and add a simpler pattern to either side that will wrap around the back.

When made into a three dimensional object only a narrow section of the design will be visible most of the time.

This made everything else go much faster, because there is less surface to design. Four out of five front panels are pieced. One more to go, then I’ll add the sides.
