Two Quilts

Can I pat myself on my back?
Is it okay to do that?
I hope so. :-)

I have completed two quilts in the last 2 days.
And I promise this is the last you will see of either one of them. :-)
One was my first quilt and just needed the binding.
I have decided that I hate binding a quilt.
I really need to work on that... sigh.

The second quilt is the Christmas present that I have been working on.
It required a bit more work.
I had it pinned, but it needed to be quilted (very simply)
 and it needed a binding as well.

Since I live at the Grand Canyon I decided to go to the rim and take the photos there.
They are not the greatest pictures.
It was almost sunset and pictures are tough at that time of day. 
Especially if you are taking pictures of a lime green quilt. 

I am glad to have them done and out of the living room.


  1. This is probably the best quilt photo shoot I've ever seen! Wow!! The quilts looks just amazing with the background scenery. I think you could frame these shots and sell them :)

  2. Thanks. I really enjoyed shooting them.

  3. I agree, those are magazine worthy with that background. Weren't you just the teeniest bit worried one might blow off the rail and drop thousands of feet below?

    You have become quite the quilter, I am so impressed.

  4. Charles did warn me that if one flew off he would not go down for it. lol There was no breeze that day so I thought I was safe... I did ask him if there was any way to take the photos with out looking like an idiot and he told me NO. :-)
