And this afternoon, I took some photos. Here is O'Cherries lying on top of the yet to be quilted (or even basted) Postage Stamp top.
Then I went outside and side-stepped dog poo to take some on-the-fence pictures. Gotta love Spring. The snow has barely melted (there's still a nasty, dirty patch in the back corner of the yard by the shed) and the lawn needs raking something fierce. Mr. P promises he'll get to it. Right now, he's dozing on the couch while the hockey game is on t.v. Gotta love men. And Stanley Cup playoffs. And lazy Saturdays.
I like how this quilt turned out...BUT...this is probably the first time I've ever thought a quilt looked better before it was washed. The crinkly, washed look takes away from the feather designs I quilted. And I was really proud of that quilting. I wish I'd taken a few photos of it before I washed it. I should have used a spray bottle to get the markings out and let it dry naturally.
A close-up of the quilting. See what I mean about the crinkliness obscuring the quilting design?
A view of the back. I used some leftover honey-bun strips to make my "signature" racing stripe on the back.
The sky looks nice and blue and benign in that last photo, but here's what it looked like behind me.
And a view of the front out of the window on the stairs. Threatening and scary!
Seriously, not two minutes after I came inside it started to rain. Good timing or what?
I hope you're enjoying your Saturday. I spent 4 1/2 hours this morning marking essays and assignments. I still have plenty of school work to do this weekend and I start a new master's course on Monday. But for now, I need to do something fun and satisfying...start a new project, maybe?
Update: This project was linked to Fabric Tuesday on Quilt Story. I hope you'll come and have a look at all the great projects.
