I have been trying to get Lincoln's Watch photographed for you. It has not been easy. I tried putting it on the clothesline, but it is so saggy, it wasn't worth it. Then, I tried tightening the clothesline, and the rope started breaking. So much for that clothesline. I don't have anyone here to hold it for me, so I threw it over the back of the trailer. Not the most romantic of photo shoots.
But at least you can see it! I am so very pleased with how this quilt turned out! I am really loving it. Sorry the photos aren't that great. I will try again when I can find a good place to shoot some photos!
If you are interested in this pattern, I blogged a review of it here.
Pattern: Lincoln's Watch
Designer: Bonnie Blue Quilts
Size: 72" 84" ish
Quilted by: Shelly Pagliai, Prairie Moon Quilts
I just love Shelly's undulating feathers. Do you know she told me she did them all free hand?! Wow!
Here is the fabric I chose for the back. It's not an interesting back, in that it's all one fabric. But I really liked this fabric. The style was so in keeping with all the Civil War fabrics on the front.
I was trying to take a nod from Rene' and do some more "artsy" shots of my quilt. She does such a great job of taking her quilts outdoors and photographing them, often in the mountains of Montana. Sorry, no beautiful mountains here! So, I draped it on a tree, like she did in a recent post. Meh. Not that great. Rene's shots are much better.
I'm super happy with this quilt. I just really like the design of it, as well as the fabrics and quilting. I need to get a label made tonight so I can take it to AQS tomorrow. Hopefully Pat was serious about her offer to display it there. How exciting would that be?!
Rene', you have an open invitation to come and help me stage some photographs of this quilt! I will keep looking for a better place to photograph the quilts. My neighbors have some pretty sweet wagons in their yard. Maybe there!
Until next time,
