I finished it up last night and gave it a washing. (Note to self: do not use towels in the wash with a navy quilt. The fuzz will require some serious sticky roller attention! Next time use pillowcases or anything lint free to balance out the washer!)
This is always one of my favorite places to photograph my quilts. I like the way the quilt hangs, but I really just love the background (even when the grass needs mowing). I think I need to get my BoyChild, BabyBrother, and Nephew to build me a section of split rail fencing here just for photographing my quilts!
On the porch rail.
The "roll" .... even though mine is rolled a bit haphazardly, I still like it.
These are quick photos with my phone. I will be taking more (and hopefully) better photos later with my real camera before adding to my Etsy site.
There is minimal quilting on this one ... mostly I went along (just inside of) all the navy blue seams.
If you're interested before I get it on my Etsy listing, just drop me an email or leave a comment here. It measures approx 40" x 47" after washing. Charms are April Showers, blue is Bella Solids, backing is flannel from Hancock Fabrics. Binding is a print from April Showers. It has been pre-washed with unscented detergent and fabric softener. I will wash it again before shipping to remove any dust/dirt that may have been picked up during photographing. Cost is $85 + shipping (medium flat rate priority mail box $12.00)
