Like people's lives on Facebook, my quilt photos are selected and edited to only show the best. (Um, of course they are.)
I like how it's bright and soft at the same time. At one point, I decided it needed more red for contrast.
I stright-line quilted this one in a double-line grid, with quilting lines about 1/4 inch away from the seams. Simple, but pretty dense. This is a nice, heavy quilt.
I had added quite a few squares of white (Kona Snow, I think) into the mix. Once the quilt was completely pieced and quilted, they looked too empty to me.
I bound it in a pretty spring green solid. (Sprout from Connecting Threads)
Of course, not all of the photos were gems. Over time, I've become much more conscious of what makes me like/dislike photos, and how to pick out the good and the bad. Here are a few "misses":
|ugh, feet! shadow!|
|Want to see the quilt, or shrubbery? Certainly not my pedicure.|
|all washed out!|
