Close-up of Quilt

Share it Please
A larger image of the "we can't quite believe it's finished" quilt has been requested so hopefully you can see a bit more detail on this one. It is a big quilt so we had to photograph it outside (obviously we managed to do so during one of those relatively infrequent periods when we actually had sunshine) In fact the winter light probably made it easier to see the actual quilting lines than if we had taken the photo inside which really would not have done it justice.
It must have been quite an amusing sight as Adam and I climbed two ladders to hold the quilt up for the photo to be taken right next to a main road and under pain of death by its maker if we so much as got a speck of dirt on the quilt itself. Bear in mind that Adam is six foot four (and still growing I think) and I'm...well, quite a bit shorter than that.

Thank you Sonnja. The picture doesn't really do it justice though. The quilt is large too so has a huge amount of work in it.

We're still trying to persuade the quiltmaker to put it in for the Malvern Show in May..but no luck so far!
