Finished at last!


Finished is a small exaggeration. I haven't clipped odd ends of thread and have to do the label but, yes, I've finally got this quilted and bound. Phew! Seemed like a long haul for a throw size quilt.

I honestly don't understand why I don't get true color with my camera. This was outdoors on the lawn in nice sunlight but the pink is all washed out, it's really a very vivid pink. I think I need a new camera. ... some day.


So tomorrow I'd do the last bit of cosmetic surgery on this. Then I have my May journal quilt to do. It took me a long time to decide what to do but now I know and can get it done fairly soon. And I have small things that I guess are properly called "quilties" to make. They'll be pretty quick too. Then I can go on with a paper pieced quilt I've had on my "Unstarted UFO list" And I have other ideas rolling around in the old cranium too. Always fells great to finish something.

Woo Hoo! A happy dance for you and your quilt!

This is so interesting ... all those different stars and your mix of hues. The pinks show up pretty vivid on my monitor.

I agree with Nellie's Needles. The pinks look vivid on my netbook, so perhaps the problem is with your monitor settings rather than your camera.

I like the quilt a lot, even though I am not a great fan of pink. There is enough uniformity of colour and pattern to make a coherent whole, but enough variety to make it interesting.

Yea! It's fabulous and much more detailed than any quilt I've ever made.

Thank you, Jenny. I would never have thought of that. I think I'll go to the Mac store next week and ask about adjusting the monitor color. I hope that can be done on a laptop.
