I really HATE trying to photograph quilts on the clothes line, but I had no choice. This quilt is massive and I had nobody to hold it for me.
First I wound the clothesline up so the quilt wouldn't drag on the ground, but then I couldn't reach to peg it up.. so, it came back down again and I tried to juggle it in my arms and peg it up at the same time...
Then it blew in the wind.. so this is the best photo I could get so far.
I expect to have a better photo when it is on my sister's bed.
This is my sister Libby's 30th birthday quilt. She turned 30 in June 2007 - yes, over a year ago. The thing is, it was hard to make her a big quilt. She hates anything with pink, flowers or frills. Her quilt is modern and geometric. I love making quilts with reproduction fabrics and antique looks.
So, here it is finally. Mum quilted it on her longarm with allover swirls in citrus variegated thread.
I haven't figured out how to insert a photo just anywhere in the blog post yet. I wanted to insert the close-up photo right here, but it went to the top of the page. Ah well, more to find out!
