Magic flying carpet quilt
I have never had this problem before....how to photograph a very large (90x90") quilt? Oh, hubby was home and happy to hang onto the quilt, but its a "big" person job, so we did it together ...oops, er kids would you like to use Mummy's camera?
Mr 5 was delighted to take a photo for Mummy and we just kept encouraged him to do so, to be sure of one good shot, I think he did really well! You cannot even see our feet! And I just need to point out that the perfect border fabric was found IN my stash, which made me very happy!
I just need to buy a backing (funnily nothing big enough in my stash!) then this monster of a top is off to my friend Elaine, who is a long arm quilter. I did finish this strippy quilt though.
The four long pieces came into the charity quilt I was in (with Elaine) and I put my hand up to join them in the Quilt As You Go method, admittedly they have been in the cupboard a very long time. I always think QAYG is great until I have to do it. But I am slowly perfecting my method. Anyway it is finished now and will be a lovely lap quilt for someone in need of comfort. Ummm and there is another long term project about of my cupboard, phew!
Last but not least I finished my miniature quilt, Rolling Stones by Ann Hermes (BHG American Patchwork Quilting Feb 2008). I am looking forward to having a whole wall of miniatures some day : )
Happy quilting Sue SA.
