I'm so happy to show you a finished quilt! My Wagon Wheel quilt came back from the long-armer last week, Sue did a beautiful job on the figure eight quilting. It's the first time I've had a computerised quilting design done on a quilt and I love it to pieces.
A little trimming and binding later...
...I had a finished quilt. My plan was to take the quilt somewhere different (but as yet undecided) to photograph it but this afternoon I noticed that the backyard soccer goal was perfectly positioned in the sun. Unfortunately the goal is not quite tall enough for the quilt so it's hard to see one of my favourite details.. the additional sashing strip that runs along the bottom of the quilt. I love the quirkiness of that strip.
And just for fun, a wide shot. You can see that there was only a sliver of non-shady sun. I put a blanket under the quilt where it touched the ground as the grass was wet and muddy. The joy of quilt photography in winter!
This is the second finished quilt from my Quilt the Book project, I'm making all the quilts in the book Denyse Schmidt Modern Quilts Traditional Inspiration. I can't wait to get a big pile of quilts! It's also the first finish from my third quarter goals, I'll be linking up with the finish along at the end of this quarter.
