Height Disadvantage

Everything required for a photo shoot was in place. Blue sky. Yup! Child to wield the camera. Yup! Finished quilt top. Most definitely! Adult with wide enough arm span to properly hold the quilt up to show it to its full glory. Um, no!

Well, we can't have it all. Never mind. To the best of Emily's and my ability here is the completed Salt Air quilt top, glowing in the sunshine.


It measures 60" x 66". I will need to piece a back. I have an idea in mind already. All I need is a man back to work and both children in school. They don't half distract you from getting things done.

And on that note, I have promised Em some time on the Wii together. I have a feeling I am about to be beat, again.

  7. It looks wonderful and there you are out in the sun with shadows and all. I am looking too at the green grass, none of that at my house right now.

  8. Personally I'd be worried if you did have the arm span to hold that GORGEOUS quilt, so it's all good! Love the fabrics in that quilt!

  21. Lovely quilt, those wee squares in the borders take it into a whole different league, filing that idea away too.

  22. That is a really neat idea with the little blocks on the boarder. Sometimes I buy extra fabric because I hate piecing boarders. That would save alot of material. Thanks for the idea.
