Quilt With Us

From Monday to Wednesday, I had the privilege of traveling "Up North" a few hours with a couple of friends. We stayed in a little Bed and Breakfast, spent time snow shoeing, and exploring the Bruce Trail. It was wonderful to just 'get away'.... No cooking, no responsibilities, no pressure, and lots of laughter and conversations.

Thursday and Friday I spent most of my time in my quilting room, reorganizing (does any one do that to just 'be' in your sewing room, even if you're not in the mood to sew?) and also working on quilt. Time goes all too fast, though.

Hoping to hang this quilt -- I named, "Into the Light" --- today on my wall in the quilting room! It's a charm quilt from dark to light, fossil ferns fabric. I used variegated thread for the meandering, and red thread for the leaf quilting on the border. It's 64 in. X 64 in. This was just a fun quilt to pull together and I simply love the flow from dark to light and the red border makes the quilt 'pop'... .....

I have yet to figure out a good way to get good pictures of my quilts.

Happy Saturday everyone!

This a beautiful quilt and I really the border fabric. I find myself reorganizing my stash just to see what I want to use next time I start another quilt.

Love your quilt. As to organizing....I do it all the time. I sometimes organize what I just organized. I takes my mind off all the things I NEED to do. Glad to hear there are others out there with the same needs.

Great quilt! I saw one quilter hung her quilt outside on the clothesline for a picture. Good natural light and it was easy to hang.
I like to "visit" in my sewing room too, putter or move fabric around. It's my space and relaxing just to be in. Now I'm off to sew.

Very pretty quilt, the center looks almost like stained glass.

I haven't figured out the taking picture stuff either. Small quilts aren't too bad, but larger ones are hard. The professionals use a stand where you can attach the quilt at the top (a lot like they hang quilts at quilt shows). I have a nice digital SLR with multple lenses and I still cant' get a great shot. I've even been known to bring a tall ladder into the house to try to get decent shots of my larger quilts.
