When it appeared like we would get a largely dry day I figured I was safe to wash and line dry my Colour Brick Quilt. I was going to take pictures after this stage. Until I remembered the quilt had a very light backing. So light, every mark from the dirty rain washed surfaces, is liable to be attracted to it. It made more sense to wash it after its photo shoot. Laying it flat outside I see as well as the wonky quilting, I've managed to trim down the quilt on the wonk too. I'm not completely off of the idea of making large quilts, but I've decided if I do I will not be finishing them. And I am not sure I'll be attempting anything bigger than a mini quilt until my machine has had that service!
For this reason all the pics that follow are not close ups. You don't need to examine the errors of my quilting ways. And if you're reading this from the Quilt Police - well I'm probably guilty as charged! But I figure if this quilt is far far less than perfect I will be more inclined to use and love it, rather than keep it folded, to be brought out on special occasions.
Not sure why the colours are bleached in this. It's more vibrant in person.
Opps the breeze caught this. But the colours are a bit more true.
No sewing for me today - well not so far. I sat in the garden for a good chunk of the day reading the book for my book group choice. It's a very new group and our first meeting is on Tuesday. I have a busy start to the week. But hopefully I'll be back with more sewing soon.
