My Kaffe Fassett Polka Dot Chain quilt was ready for its glamour shots yesterday afternoon. Here we have it lounging on the dead lawn in the back yard. I cropped out as much of the brown and bare spots as I could.
Here are a couple of close-ups -- notice use of the creative angles!
And finally, artfully draped over the rotting back deck (yes this back yard needs help).
I will say that this quilt certainly brightens up the back yard. But then it is so bright that it would probably brighten up a cave! Anyway I'm very happy with how it turned out. It is big - I know you're not surprised - it measures almost 90" square. I was able to pick up a king size batt at Joanns yesterday for 50% off and I ordered a bright yellow back (108") from Fabric. com. It was on sale and 3 yards cost me less than $20 - a real bargain. Now I want to get the binding made before I send it off to my long arm quilter. Then when I get it back I'll be ready to get it finished and it will sit for about a month before I actually get around to it -- just keeping it real here - LOL!
Hope you are staying cool - more hazy hot and humid here in Ohio. I've already thanked the Lord for the AC and Duke energy for keeping it running!
