I am excited to be participating in Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival. I am entering a quilt I recently made for my mother in the Quilt Photographer category. This is my second entry for the Fall Festival.
I have been slowing working on finishing several projects that have been put aside. I am not sure if I should be proud or embarrassed that this quilt has taken me almost a year to complete (10 months). I am not much of a yellow or orange person so the fabric colors did not really hold my attention. I don't know why I did not like the quilt when I was making it or even when it was complete. Once it was quilted I was awestruck and trying to comprehend what I had not liked. I love it. I was so shocked and happy when I picked it up from the woman who quilted it.
Since binding is not my favorite activity - it took me another month or so to get that completed. This quilt reminds me of fall so I wanted to get some pictures with fall leaves. I told my son we were going for a hike and after he helped me with quilt pictures he could have some Cold Stone.
It was quite windy that day - My son wanted to know why "I wasn't a normal mom" - "none of my friends mom's make them climb a tree in the wind trying to get a good picture of a quilt"
A break in the wind.
Close up of the quilting.
My son had more fun than he will admit on his hike with me and he was rewarded with Cold Stone as promised.
