I have been meaning to get better photos of the two quilts that live on our bed these days. Today started out so beautifully. We packed the bubba into the stroller and headed to the cafe for a coffee and for me to shoot some quilts on the wharf. It was still pretty bright but they're better than any previous attempts by a long shot.
I have called this Bright Stars for want of a more imaginative title. Hand quilted in Pearl 8 cotton. 6" Piano key border.Scrappy binding.
The Ocean Quilt. This one is so hard to photograph. A combination of it's size, a generous queen (each block was squared up to 20' and sashing and borders an extra 2.5") and all the white make this baby a nightmare. I love it. I love the colours. I love the ocean. I love my ocean quilt. Is it weird to love something so much that you made yourself?
Another reason for revisiting these quilts is I have got up the gumption to submit these babies to the Fresh Modern Quilts Flickr administrator. Now I must play the waiting game. The quilts on this site blow my mind so it would doubly blow my mind to be accepted.
