I finally finished a quilt!

In use on my bed, yay! I really like it.

Okay it must be an art to photograph your quilts....because it was really hard to find somewhere to sort of hang it & then the color isn't true. So if you have advice please do tell.

I had a really fun time working with a friend's long arm to quilt this top. It is a pattern called rambling hearts. Even though I am not a fan of hearts this one was perfect looking more like vines. I actually got to try another long arm doing some free motion quilting on a baby quilt. That one isn't ready to photographed yet. I need to put the binding on it first. I must say it was fun to do but not easy.

Now I need to get caught up on my August bee blocks!

Happy Quilting!


  1. Pretty quilt, Jeannette! I feel your pain about the photos - I try to take mine in sunlight, once on my clothesline so that I can get clear shots of the front and back for posterity, then I take the quilt and drape it somewhere and take an "artsy" pic! Fortunately, I've got lots of rustic fences and tree logs in my yard that lend themselves to this. I also like to take a roll-up pic to show the binding. And I notice a lot of pics on blogs where they don't show the whole quilt, but a close-up shot that shows some of the piecing and detail of the quilting. Hope this helps - Good luck!!

  2. thanks Sarah. I am limited to props if you will unfornately. It is also hard to do it alone.... so I will have my hubby help me next time.
