When I last blogged the quilt was on the frame. I loaded it up on Sunday so that I could get to work on it first thing on Monday. I found a sale on Connecting Thread's thread last week, so I picked up several colors and I used Custard for this quilt. It is a light yellow that worked really well.
Because the quilt was small I was able to quilt, bind and wash it on Monday. I will admit it is not perfect, but I really do like how the all over meander worked on this quilt. I tried to get some better photographs this week. I tried outside of my sister's office in the shade so the yellow wasn't blown out by the sun.
The wind caught it, so you see the backing I used. I think this might be the best photo for actual color for the pink, green and purple, but the yellow didn't show up quite as well as I would have liked. So I stopped at another spot and got this one.
It is in more sun, so the yellow is showing up a little more. I recently signed up to join the New Modern Quilt Blogger Blog Hop and the organizer created a google group for everyone and it has really be a great learning experience. I had seen a spot I wanted to used to try and get a cool picture, but it would have involved using a rusty fence. So I moved on to this spot, but someone in the group said they used an old shower curtain under their quilts so they didn't get dirty. I'm going to remember that trick.
I did do one close up shot to see the quilting. It shows up the best on the purple. I also learned about water-marking my photos in the group as well. It was also pointed out that my photos could be larger, so I'm trying that option too.
I am very please with how this quilt looks completed and I'll be getting it into the mail next week. I do think I'm going to make another one in a twin size at some point in the future. It is a great pattern, and I want to see it quilted with some ruler work. But that is another day.
